Our team of professional administrative, technical, and support staff carry out responsibilities involving administration and enforcement of County and State Codes related to regional comprehensive land use planning, development, construction and alteration of buildings within the County.

The Permit Center, located on the main floor of the Public Works Building, is designed to provide for the majority of County land use, development, permitting and construction plan review functions at a single, convenient location. In most cases, the Center eliminates the necessity of traveling to other buildings for information, clearances or approvals.

Mission Statement
We are dedicated to preserving and enhancing the public health, safety and welfare by guiding the physical growth of Spokane County and providing for safety and compatibility in the built environment through:
  • Reasonable administration and enforcement of building and site development requirements.
  • Processing project applications in a fair and efficient, customer-oriented manner; and
  • Enhancing professionalism in staff.
