Public Notice and Participation

Most land use applications require that notice be given to the public about the proposed land use application. The notice allows the public to comment on the proposal. Public notice is not typically required for a construction permit, unless the permit includes review under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA).

Notice can include a public information sign posted near the project site, notice by mail to owners within 500 feet of the proposal, a notice published in local newspapers, and the city’s Weekly Permit Bulletin. Not every land use proposal requires a public notice sign to be posted.
