To make sure you receive notice of Land Use Applications, Decisions, Meetings, Hearings, New codes and Director’s Rules, you can subscribe to our Land Use Information Bulletin (LUIB). The LUIB is a great way to get public notices and stay informed about development projects in your neighborhood and throughout Seattle. It includes projects that have public comment opportunities or upcoming public meetings.
Beginning June 1, 2017, our new, colorful, large public notice signs will: show a picture of the proposed project; include a map showing the location of the project in relationship to nearby streets and properties; have a simple description of the project, and detailed bullet points; include information on how to review the project online; and list the date of the comment period on the project.
The City Council is sponsoring legislation that would amend Seattle’s regulations for processing land use permits. The proposed amendments would streamline administration of the Land Use Code and update methods for public notice. Many of the proposed amendments are technical corrections (such as correcting cross-references, combining sections that address the same topics, and updating grammar and format). The legislation would also expand public notice requirements and clarify procedures for Council land use decisions.
