[ARCHIVED] MLT Construction Restart Update

During the implementation of Phase I Construction Restart under Governor Jay Inslee’s phased approach to reopening Washington, no NEW permit applications are being accepted at this time. If a construction permit relates to an existing permitted project, prior to the Governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order of March 23, 2020, it will be accepted. New permit applications are only allowed if the construction work is deemed essential, such as public facilities and emergencies, as outlined in the Governor’s clarification on March 25, 2020. With respect to new construction and accompanying permits, Community and Economic Development Director Christy Osborn states, “The department will begin to accept new applications and permits beginning June 1, 2020. Modification to processes will be implemented due to the continued closure of City Hall such as virtual meetings and some electronic submittals.”

If your project meets the current stated requirements, please email your completed forms to the Permit Specialist. Applications are located on the specific webpages listed at Compliance to COVID-19 mandates has created longer processing times for permits.

To schedule an inspection, your project must have permits issued prior to March 23, 2020. We accept requests only for existing, low-risk construction projects, not requiring workers to be closer than six-feet, and has developed an exposure control, mitigation, and recovery plan. Inspections for permitted work deemed essential, as outlined in the Governor’s clarification on March 25, 2020, such as public facilities and emergencies are also accepted. To schedule an inspection, please call 425-775-9694.

Requirements for contractors to comply with comprehensive COVID-19 exposure control, mitigation, and recovery plans and safety practices are enforced by the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries.
