In an effort to go paperless, the City of Mountlake Terrace is expanding permit application options in the online permit portal. The electronic portal system makes applying for permits faster and easier.

Community and Economic Development Director Christy Osborn stated, “I am excited to continue the city’s efforts in streamlining the development review process with a fully integrated electronic permitting process.”
Over 28 permit applications, including decks and fences, commercial demolition and home occupations, are now available for access online. The city’s permit portal provides residents and developers an opportunity to apply for a wide range of permits from the comfort of their home or office. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect in-person communications, online permitting provides a progressive option for applicants to utilize online conveniences.
Where residents once had to wait in line at City Hall for assistance, or mail or email numerous and often large, cumbersome documents to a permit specialist, applicants proposing many types of development permits are now able to submit them electronically. In anticipation of a full public-facing permitting process, additional online applications for other permit types will continue to be phased in over the next several months.
