DPD adjusted its service fees on January 1, 2012.
DPD uses the most recent building valuation data (BVD) published by the International Code Council as a base for the Seattle BVD table, found in Director’s Rule (DR) 1-2012. The new Director’s Rule, BVD table and other fee-related information are available on our fees website, www.seattle.gov/dpd/about/fees.
Some of the proposed changes include:
Raising the minimum intake fee for Design Review projects and Type IV and V permit applications from $2,500 to $5,000. This changes when fees are collected and does not raise the overall fees for these permit applications.
Raising the Land Use Pre-Application Conference fee to include the first hour of research and follow-up review time (total $500).
Adding a new fee for research, inspections and reviews associated with Housing and Building Maintenance Code (HBMC) Variance Decisions (total $344).
