SDCI is pleased to announce the release of its new Shaping Seattle: Property & Building Activity map. This new, mobile-first map allows users to find active construction, land use, and Design Review permits in their neighborhood. The new map will make it easier for you, our customers, to research active permits, find related documents and permit records, and comment on land use permits under review. We’ve optimized the map to work on mobile devices so you can quickly find permit information about projects you see when walking in your neighborhood.
On November 15, 2019, the City of Seattle adopted a new Known Landslide map and an updated map for steep slope erosion hazard areas. Known landslide areas and steep slope erosion hazard areas are Environmentally Critical Areas regulated by SMC 25.09.
We updated the General Standards for Plans and Drawings Tip. We updated a Director’s Rule with new Landslide maps, and posted a Draft Directors Rule with new SEPA thresholds for comment.
