Building Permit Applications and Handouts

ATTENTION:
Washington Building Code Update - February 1, 2021
Effective February 1, 2021, Washington State will implement the 2018 Building Codes and Washington State Energy Code. 
     -     Complete application submittals received prior to February 1, 2021 will be reviewed and inspected under the 2015 codes.  Applications may be submitted outside of office hours via our front door drop-box and email (permits@co.walla-walla.wa.us).  Per WWCC 14.07.050, a complete building permit application shall include a "fully completed and signed application form" and those documents required by WWCC Title 15 - Building and Construction, as listed on the application form.  In the case of most building permit applications, this means that building plans and a site plan are also required.  An application fee ($200) is required in order for us to review your application, but we cannot accept payment until we have entered your permit application into our tracking system, this does not have to be received by February 1.
     -     Complete application submittals received on or after February 1, 2021 will be reviewed and inspected under the 2018 codes.
