Moving an existing Mobile Home? (download form, 570k PDF) (separate download).
- If you are moving an existing mobile home from one location to another, a Mobile Home Move Permit is also required. This permit is administered by the Treasurer´s Office, and must be returned to the Treasurer´s Office, not the Building Division. Consequently, it is not included in the package downloadable from the link at the top of the page.
New Address Application (download form, PDF)
- If there is no existing address for this site, or if the existing address will continue to identify a separate existing structure.
If your property was recently purchased and it is not in the Assessor's computer system, or someone owns it other than yourself, or the proposed project hinges on a real estate transaction, then Proof of Ownership is required. This can be done by providing a copy of the Deed filed in the Auditor's Office or by obtaining a letter from the owner stating their willingness to allow you to place/build a structure on their parcel (reference parcel Number).
The Review Process…
After we receive the application, it is reviewed by our Staff for compliance, including a structural plan check. We will compare your plot plan and parcel number with several different maps to verify compliance with many different state and county codes. SOME OF THE REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE: Zoning Maps, and Critical Area Maps (wetlands, bluffs, floodplains, creeks, rivers, streams, wildlife habitat, aquifer recharge areas, hydric soils, erosions landslide and seismic), legal lot sizes and setbacks from property lines or critical areas to your proposed site. If you are in, or close to, a critical area you may be required to sign a "Notice to Title" which we will filed with the county Auditor disclosing it is on or near your parcel of land. Most applicants are very much aware of these on their property (creek, bluff, pond, Straits of Juan de Fuca, for example). If you are building near a critical area, you will be notified if further studies or reports are needed prior to issuance of your permit. This may include temporary fencing of wetlands or stream buffers or marking of the buffer of landslide hazards with stakes. This usually happens when the property is so restricted by the critical area that development could adversely affect the area (such as a major wetland or steep hillside for example). An estimated one out of ten projects from this review is sent to our specialist for a site visit, and less than 1/10th of those requires a report.
