The Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections will launch a new permitting software on April 30, which will mean no inspection service requests will be accepted for up to three days prior.
SDCI’s new system is all electronic, which means all applications and plans will need to be submitted using the Seattle Services Portal. The department reports it plans to keep same-day service online for Subject-to-Field Inspection permits, but will continue to accept walk-ins after the portal launches, with coaches to show people the online process.
Regular applicants will have their accounts converted over to the Seattle Services Portal, and SDCI will email them once completed.
Anyone wanting to get an application in prior to the new system conversion must do so by 4 p.m. Thursday, April 26, and the deadline for an inspection request is noon Friday, April 27. SDCI expects to be able to take requests again starting at 10 a.m. Monday, April 30.
