*NEWS FLASH*

March 26, 2020, Governor Inslee’s Stay-At-Home Health Order states Construction is not considered essential and personnel in the construction field should stay at home.

In Compliance with a Stay-at-Home Order issued by Kittitas County Public Health on Monday, March 23, 2020, the Community Development Department will be closed beginning Tuesday, March 24, 2020. The earliest dated we might re-open is Monday, April 6, 2020, but the date will be determined by guidance from state and local officials. 

During the closure, our department will not be accepting any new building permit applications.

Building inspections will continue on a case by case basis but may be scheduled a few days out.  Please continue to call the inspection line as normal and someone will get in contact with you.

The Building Division is responsible for ensuring all new structures and major remodel work on existing structures are built to the nationally recognized standards in the International Building and Fire Code(s).

The goal for the Building Division is to have construction in the City designed and built structurally sound and free of any major life safety hazards. Accomplishing this goal requires staff to engage in all phases of a building's life cycle - - from initial questions about the building posed at the Community Development counter in City Hall to major repair and retrofitting projects to demolitions resulting in a building's life cycle starting over again.
