Residential Permits

Why is a permit required?

Many projects require a Swinomish permit before beginning the work. Permits and inspections help preserve property values and enhance health and safety of the community.

When is a permit required?

Permits are required to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, or demolish a building or structure, to change the use of a building, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system. Permits are required to be obtained prior to beginning any work. In situations when replacements and repairs must be performed in an emergency situation, the permit application shall be submitted to the Planning Department on the next business day.

All projects, whether they need a permit or not, must comply with the adopted building codes and regulations and the Swinomish Tribal Code.

Many projects require a permit. If you're not sure if a permit is required, please contact the Planning Office by emailing permits@swinomish.nsn.us or calling (360) 466-7280.
