Pre-development meetings are a valuable resource in the processing of your application, particularly if you are unfamiliar with City standards, required permits, or if your proposal is complex or needs multiple approvals. Prospective applicants for building permits, State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) review, subdivision, or other land use action, permit or approval may find it useful to request a pre-development meeting.
At a cost of $200, this meeting provides you with an opportunity to discuss your proposal with City staff prior to submitting a formal application. Upon formal application, the fee of $200 will be credited towards your development review charges.
