Let Us Know
- Time to Review Goals are based on permit type and scope of work. Though plan reviewers are always striving to meet these time to review goals, sometimes it is just not possible. In addition to the time it takes to perform and complete reviews, there is additional processing time required by the permit technicians to get plans ready for review or permits ready for issuance.
- Making Online Inspection Requests has been simplified with a more user-friendly interface and more timely data, available 24-hours a day at MyBuildingPermit.com.
- Interactive Mapping Portal - Kirkland Maps has a public mapping portal that allows the community to access, navigate to, and query selected data layers from the citywide GIS database and other sources. Using your computer, you can easily access the city’s property information, permitting information; zoning and land use information, utility information, topographic information, and sensitive areas information. You can also create a property report, apply for permits, pay utility bills, and print out maps.
