The type of approval needed depends upon the location, size, and details of the project. The City’s Community Development Department has developed a Master Permit Application for all land use projects, so only one application will be needed. Each type of land use approval will have a checklist, depending on the type of project, and each checklist will tell you how many copies of each item that you will need to submit with your project. Contact the City Planner for the types of checklist(s) that you may need at 360-454-5220.
For inspections, contact the Building Inspection Scheduling line at 360-454-5217 and leave a message with:

The data the city refers to for property information is located on the Assessor’s Office website via the Snohomish County Online Property Information Interactive Map (SCOPI) and is not suitable for locating specific property lines and measurements. The City recommends you find a survey that may have been done for your property, look at your title report for past surveys or hire a surveyor to locate your property lines.
