A Brief History of MyBuildingPermit.com 

In 1998 the building officials from the five Eastside cities of Mercer Island, Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, and Redmond began a unified approach to building processes and services.  They recognized that many customers work in more than one city; the lack of uniformity in the processes, interpretations, and codes led to confusion and increases in the cost of doing business.  The city building officials began working together to share information, agree upon standards, and pool resources- in other words, governments working together to accomplish similar needs.

In an effort to improve building code consistency between the cities, they created easy-to-read bulletins, adopted common ordinances that regulate construction, provided co-sponsored training seminars, and partnered with businesses in the community.  This vision has evolved into the nation's first multi-jurisdictional online permitting portal. MyBuildingPermit.com now serves the Washington State jurisdictions of: Mercer Island, Kenmore, Snohomish County, Woodinville, Bothell, Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, Sammamish, Snoqualmie, Burien, Mill Creek, Mukilteo, Duvall, Gig Harbor, Seatac, and Renton.
