Summary: There are several types of temporary use permits allowed under the Seattle Land Use Code. These permits allow you to conduct temporary activities (i.e., uses) on your property that are not already approved by permit. Temporary use permits can be approved for activities not normally allowed in your zone. Under the Land Use Code, “use” means “the purpose for which land or a structure is designed, built, arranged, intended, occupied, maintained, or leased,” including uses without a structure, such as open storage.
