SDCI Closures, Service Updates, and Inspection Requirements

SDCI customer service areas remain closed until further notice and continue offering services online. King County has approval from the State Department of Health to allow all private construction activities that are low-risk and adhere to strict COVID 19 Job site Requirements. The City of Seattle has issued requirements for construction projects seeking inspections. The City WILL NOT INSPECT any site that does not follow these requirements.


Summary: This Tip explains the applicable regulations and process for disclosing potential Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions. This is done as pursuant to the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) as part of environmental review conducted in the master use permit process. In recognition of the impacts from GHG emissions, on December 3, 2007, the Seattle City Council adopted Ordinance 122574 which requires City departments that perform environmental review under the State Environmental Policy Act to evaluate greenhouse gas emissions when reviewing permit applications for development.
