Overview



Permitting in Washington State can be a long, drawn-out and costly process. Permitting time and expenses increase carrying and holding costs, which ultimately end up in the sales price. Are the benefits of Washington’s land use and environmental laws being undermined by negative impact of these regulations on our ability to build affordable housing and viable commercial projects? Can we streamline SEPA, GMA and other permitting requirements while also preserving the fundamental purposes of these regulations? Please plan to join us as we examine ways to expedite the permit processes, keep project development costs reasonable, and protect what we love about Washington.
