Building, Demolition and Mechanical Permits
Most building projects require
some type of permit, so it is important to contact the Building Department prior
to starting your project. Those projects that require a permit, and are started
without one, will be halted! You will be subject to normal permit fees in
addition to civil fines/penalties and inspection costs.
applications are accepted if the applicant's paperwork is complete and
demonstrates that the proposed construction complies with all current local,
state and federal laws.
Permits are valid for one year from
the date of issuance.

Most building permits require review by the City’s Building Official. A plan
review fee is required at the time of permit submittal; this fee is based on
your estimated value of the project. Per City Code, the final project value is
determined by the Clyde Hill Building Official. In order to issue an approved
permit, you will pay a building permit fee, and any other incidental fees (based
on the building official’s value.)

Demolition permits are
required whenever a structure is being completely removed. Please check with
the Building Department to determine if a separate demolition permit is required
when doing a partial demo associated with a building permit.
Mechanical permits are required when adding or
replacing mechanical items in your home. This includes furnaces, water heaters,
gas appliances, fireplace inserts, vents, fans, air conditioners and heat
pumps. Most mechanical permits can be issued over-the-counter. The exceptions
are air conditioners and heat pumps. You are required to submit a site plan
with your permit application so that the placement of the units can be reviewed
for compliance with the City’s Zoning Code.
