Spokane Valley has developed a streamlined permitting process that fits the needs of local business owners and citizens. To ensure efficiency as well as environmental safety, the city's highly trained, multi-disciplined technical review staff is available to help clients navigate the permit process and provide innovative solutions. Additionally, Spokane Valley regularly evaluates regulations to ensure the city is utilizing a common sense approach.
All commercial projects, including new developments, are assigned a 10-business-day target review date. However, many permits for commercial and residential projects can be issued both online and over the counter by our skilled International Code Council-certified front counter staff.
