Expedited Permit Review Requests: For Process I or Planning Official Decisions only, per KMC 5.74.090 an applicant may request to have a land use permit application reviewed within an expedited time frame. There is an additional charge if the Planning and Building Department approves the request. Approval is dependent on current staff availability to conduct overtime reviews. Note: The applicant must contact the assigned planner at least one working day prior to submitting a land use permit application.
Please contact the Planning and Building Department if assistance is required to determine whether or not a pre-submittal conference is required for a particular land use permit. Whether required or not, they are always encouraged.
