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: Zone designations established by Seattle's adopted Land Use Map regulate uses, size, shape, and location of buildings on all property in Seattle. Any citizen may initiate a request for a rezone, which is a change to the Land Use Map. Rezone decisions are made by the Seattle City Council after reviewing a report and recommendation from the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) and the City's Hearing Examiner.
