Snohomish County to Update Review and Permit Fees

Snohomish County Planning and Development Services (PDS) was on hand at a recent DBIC meeting to discuss its project to update plan review and permit fees. The most recent update to its fee schedule was in 2008. There should be a draft fee document available for stakeholder review in February, with final adoption slated for July. Applications submitted up to that date will vest to existing fees.

In addition, the department is working to allow a “basics” program for townhomes, slated for unveiling in the second quarter of this year. The potential fee increase will still leave Snohomish County as lowest of all neighboring jurisdictions in terms of fees. Review the initial draft of the new fee document.

For more information, contact Senior Snohomish County Manager Mike Pattison, 425.460.8203.
