Spokane Valley Permit Center



Welcome to the City of Spokane Valley’s Permit Center. Our goal is to assist you with your project needs as quickly, accurately, and customer-focused as possible.  The Permit Center is responsible for processing all development permits within the City of Spokane Valley.  We accept and/or issue, just to name a few:

  • Building and building trade permits
  • Land use applications
  • ROW permits
  • Sign permits
  • Certificates of Occupancy for completed projects

The Permit Center schedules pre-application meetings, answers technical building and land use code questions, and provides sample plans and informational handouts.  In addition, the Permit Center houses the file information for most city properties. Code Enforcement action requests can be filed at the Permit Center as well.  To make the permitting process as efficient as possible, please review the Building, Planning or Development Engineering Division pages for more detailed information regarding different kinds of permits and project information you might need for your project or permit. And please, call us if you have any questions regarding your project- we want to hear from you.

Building Permits

The Permit Center receives for review Building Permit applications for such work as new commercial, new residential, remodels, as well as mechanical and plumbing. Once complete applications are received, these applications and documents are routed to the appropriate departments for review.

Code Enforcement

The City of Spokane Valley Community Development Department enforces codes and ordinances which govern construction, land use, environmental protection, housing and building maintenance, vacant building standards, vegetation overgrowth, and noise from construction and equipment. City codes and ordinances are intended to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the Spokane Valley.

Development Engineering

Development Engineering responsibilities include review and approval of all on- and off-site improvements (curb, gutters, sidewalks, paving and streets), storm water drainage plans, grading plans, traffic impacts, and erosion and sediment control plans.

Planning, Zoning, Land Use 

The Permit Center takes in a number of land use permit applications such as short subdivisions, subdivisions, rezones, conditional use permits, and temporary use permits. Once accepted at the Permit Center, these applications are routed to the Department’s Planning Division for processing.

Right-of-Way (ROW) Permits and Information

Preserving the integrity of public roadways and providing for the safety of citizens and workers are the reasons why the City of Spokane Valley requires permits for most types of work performed in the public right-of-way (ROW).
