COVID-19 Update: Most City facilities opened in August 2021 for public in-person services. Community members are encouraged to use remote options to access City services. More information can be found throughout the website and by visiting this page:
Development Engineering is also a part of the Development Services Center team. "Development" can range from something as small as an addition to a house, to a large office building or a new subdivision. As a condition of that development, new or upgraded water, sewer, storm drainage, and street improvements may be required. The Public Works review, fees, and inspection are combined into the building or grading permit.
This all ensures that there is good, maintainable City infrastructure for use by all residents of Kirkland.
