Applicants who have not submitted their building permit application for a new principal structure but have obtained their project number and Pre-Application Site Visit (PASV) prior to Sept. 12, should be aware that projects with an intake appointment date of Nov. 13, 2006, or later will be required to submit their street improvement plans to SDOT, if their project is subject to street improvements, before DPD will accept their building permit application.
This new requirement is part of the Interdepartmental Permit Coordination step in the permitting process, which launched Sept. 12 to facilitate sharing of project information amongst DPD and other City departments including SDOT, Seattle Public Utilities, the Department of Neighborhoods, etc. This coordination will allow those departments to provide early information to the applicant about their specific requirements and approval processes.
Do I Need a Street Improvement Plan?
If you are unclear about whether your building permit application will trigger a street improvement plan submittal, please review the criteria for Street Improvements in the Seattle Land Use Code (section 23.53.015.A-D).
You may also speak with a land use planner in our Applicant Services Center (ASC)—on a first-come, first-serve basis—during our normal business hours.
