The 7-Step Site Feasibility Worksheet helps you estimate the number of parking spaces, loading areas, frontage improvements and other requirements that affect the feasibility of siting a manufacturing facility.

Zoning & Permitting

The first step for any feasibility decision: Make sure the city's zoning will allow your facility and get an idea of the required land use permitting process.  Also, a quick check for building height limitations.

Property Specific Requirements

Once you have a site in mind: find out how to check for critical areas, site contamination and the kinds of site and building upgrades you may need to do.

Parking and Loading Areas Traffic Analysis and Mitigation State Environmental Policy Act
Parking & Loading Areas

Traffic Analysis & Mitigation

Get an idea of the level of traffic analysis you will need and a quick estimate of the cost of city and state traffic mitigation fees.

State Environmental Policy Act

Take a look at the list of conditions that trigger the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Checklist and understand the process when a checklist is required.

About Regulatory Roadmaps

The Regulatory Roadmaps Initiative is a partnership between local, state, and regional governments, led by the Washington State Department of Commerce.  Regulatory Roadmaps are city-specific guides to help businesses understand and plan for all local, state and regional regulatory requirements.  Roadmaps are available for opening a restaurant and for siting a manufacturing facility.  Visit the Washington State Department of Commerce website for more information. 

These tools are provided for planning and guidance purposes and should not be used as a substitute for codes and regulations.  The applicant is responsible for compliance with all code and policy requirements, regardless of whether they are referred to or contained within these documents.
