Codes and Laws

The Mountlake Terrace Municipal Code (MTMC) is a compilation of the general ordinances currently in effect in the City. Often the MTMC will defer to a Revised Code of Washington State. Note: The online code may not reflect the most recent code changes.

The Community and Economic Development department provides a variety of brochures and informational publications. Residents who want to improve their property, charge their cars or consider options as a home owner can refer to the lists below. These publications provide a general overview of the topic. They are not intended to cover all situations, nor to replace any code provision that may apply and/or might differ or conflict with the information in the brochure. Publications are occasionally amended to reflect updates and changes in codes and regulations. To insure clarity, please check back prior to engaging in residential changes and improvements.
