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 Seattleā€™s basic regulations relating to housing, zoning and vegetation, gives information on how citizens may report code violations, and outlines the code compliance process. Except during the building construction process, each of these codes is enforced on a referral basis. Citizen reports of suspected code violations to the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections make it possible for the department to conduct investigations, identify and cite violations and obtain compliance with code requirements.
