Requesting Review or Reconsideration of an Application Decision

After a public notice period has ended, SDOT will make a decision to approve, modify, or deny a Street Use permit application. Any person may request a review or reconsideration of a decision made by SDOT. This written request must be sent to the SDOT Director within 10 calendar days of the date of the SDOT decision (SMC 15.04.112). The request must identify the decision for which review or reconsideration is requested, grounds for objecting to the decision based on City standards, and the specific remedy being proposed. The Director will designate a review officer who will make a recommendation to the Director. The Director may, at his or her discretion, stay implementation of a decision pending review or reconsideration. The Director's decision on review or reconsideration is final.

A request for review or reconsideration should be submitted to:

Director of Transportation
Seattle Department of Transportation
700 Fifth Avenue, Suite 3800
P.O. Box 34996
Seattle, WA 98124-4996

With a copy to:

Division Director
Street Use & Urban Forestry
700 Fifth Avenue, Suite 2300
P.O. Box 34996
Seattle, WA 98124-4996
