Big Changes in Seattle for Planning and Regulation of Buildings
Seattle News Headlines
In an article that appeared here in the Puget Sound Business Journal (as well as in a post from the Office of the Mayor, seen here), it seems that Seattle government will be re-structuring the Department of Planning and Development (DPD). DPD will be downsized and the City will create a new cabinet-level agency called the Office of Planning and Community Development, which will focus on integrated planning from across a number of city departments.
The regulatory functions previously performed by DPD (permits, code enforcement, and inspections) will now be located in a new, separate agency to be named later.
