Permit Center

The Permit Center is responsible for overseeing and managing permit intake, review, tracking and issuing a wide array of Land Use, Building and Construction Permits ranging from simple same day permits to complex development projects.

The type of permit you need to execute your project will depend on what type of project you are working on. The Permit Center has staff from Planning, Building, and Public Works available to answer questions and guide you through the application process.

Our purpose is to streamline the permit process for businesses, developers and residents, as well as preserve and enhance the quality of the natural and built environment, contributing to Burien's quality of life.
