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: The Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD) enforces City regulations for best management practices in the Shoreline District. All development, modifications and uses in the Shoreline District in the City of Seattle must follow best management practices (SMC 23.60A.152). Following these practices help protect water quality. Good water quality protects human health and wildlife habitat.
