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 Department of Planning and Development (DPD) enforces many City of Seattle codes. DPD usually begins investigating code violations when the public reports a potential violation. This document explains what potential violations should be reported to DPD and how DPD investigates and resolves those reports.
