The Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections is excited to announce we are adding closed captioning and translation to most online public meetings. Beginning in January 2023, our virtual Design Review Board meetings and land use public meetings will include closed captioning and will offer automatic translation into the languages spoken most often in our communities. SDCI will also offer these services for other online public events.
SDCI has added in-language assistance to our Virtual Applicant Services Center for customers who prefer to conduct business in Spanish, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese. Our live chat, support ticketing system, and coaching sessions are now available in these three languages. You can access these services by clicking the green chat icon on the bottom of our contact webpage and selecting your preferred language. If you know somebody who might be interested in using our in-language Virtual Applicant Services Center, please forward this information.
