Public notices and hearing requirements
"Public notice" refers to legally-required notification designed to promote timely and informed public participation in certain land use proposals or government actions.
Applicants applying for actions or permit types described in chapter 20.20 (PDF*, 518KB) of the King County Code are required to provide public notification.
The State Environmental Policy Act of 1972 (SEPA) also requires public notification of environmental threshold determinations (TD) for these applications and other actions. For more information about SEPA requirements, see public notification and the SEPA process. To request a copy of a public notice you may contact the Permitting Department Records Center. Record Center staff will need the permit file number to retrieve the public notice documentation. The Permitting Department Records Center may be reached by phone at 206-296-6696 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
