Fee Schedules

*Note:  For those permits or applications calculated on an hourly rate that will be charged to the applicant is the rate in effect at the time review or inspection work is actually performed by staff regardless of the date of application, approval or issuance of a permit.

The Building permit applications/checklists below are in a "type-able" format -- so you can fill in information directly online. The document will open as a PDF. The fields that must be filled out are highlighted in light blue. If the form does not allow you to type, click the button that says "highlight existing fields" in the upper right-hand corner. 

Once the form has been completed, they may be submitted in one of the following ways:
1.  Email:
2.  Fax:  425-775-0420
3.  Hand-delivery to Interim City Hall, 6100 219th Street SW, Suite 200, Mountlake Terrace

It is important to provide all required documentation with the permit application. The required fee(s), payable by cash or check, is due at the time the permit application is submitted.
