Permit Center

Whether you’re a new resident, business, developer, contractor, or a long-time resident new to the permitting process, our goal is to provide excellent service to our customers and community, and to assist you in a timely matter.

Prior to applying for a permit, please visit our All Applications, Checklists, and Handouts page to search for information pertaining to the permit you are applying for. Our checklists provide specific submittal requirements for each permit. To apply for a permit, please email your application and all submittal requirements to permits@blackdiamondwa.gov. A permit application will only be processed when all submittal requirements are received concurrently. If you are applying for a Building permit, or if your submittal packet is of a large size, please contact a Permit Technician for information on submitting through our online portal, Citizen’s Connect. 

Once a complete application packet is submitted, a permit technician will intake your application. After your application has been processed, you will receive an email with an invoice and instructions on how to pay associated fees, the permit number to reference, and a link to set up a Citizen’s Connect account if you’d prefer to use the online portal for submitting and receiving documents and monitoring the status of your permit.

Staff are here to help!  Please email or call us with any questions about applying for or status on a permit.
