Welcome to the Grant County Development Services



(UPDATED April 27, 2020)


The Grant County Development Services office will remain closed to the public until further notice. 


Staffing during this period will fluctuate with several staff telecommuting.  Fire investigation response will remain extremely limited for the foreseeable future.


During this unique time period, we will only accept new building, fire, and land use applications by U.S. mail, FedEx, or UPS (or other similar courier services). Issued permits will be mailed to permit applicant.


Application fees and deposits do not need to accompany building and fire permit application submittals at this time, however, no permits will be issued until the full permit fee has been paid. 

All land use application fees must accompany the submittal. 

Credit cards will be accepted over the phone for payment during this office closure period.


Building permit inspections can resume for all existing, low-risk construction sites that are compliant with Governor Inslee's Phase 1 Construction Restart COVID-19 Job Site Requirements. These conditions must be met before scheduling an inspection, and maintained throughout the duration of the Governorís order. If these measures are not present at your construction site, the inspection will be deferred until the measures are in place. Please be advised these standards apply to all low-risk, existing construction sites both owner-contractor and contractor managed alike.


All scheduled land use hearings with the Hearing Examiner and Planning Commission are officially postponed until a date to be specified after May 4, 2020 consistent with Washington State Attorney Generalís guidance on conducting public meetings during this unprecedented time.  When the postponed meetings are convened, an electronic participation option will be available and included in any future notice of hearing.


For all of your building and fire permitting questions please contact (509) 754-2011, extension 3001.  For all of your land use and planning questions, please contact (509) 754-2011, extension 2537.  We appreciate your patience in this unprecedented time, and we will make every effort possible to continue permit services based on available staff.
