Searching Records

There are a variety of ways to search records online, including:

Viewing Records

Many City planning and permit files can be viewed free of charge at the permit center located at 1775 12th Avenue NW, during normal business hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. However, when items cannot be immediately located, are extensive in nature, or require review prior to release, a formal public records request is needed. A call to the permit center may help determine if records are available, 425-837-3100. Important Note: if you are looking for properties within Highpoint, Preston, Mirrormont or other areas outside of the city limits you will need to contact King County directly. For the Klahanie neighborhood, you will need to contact Sammamish directly.

Copy Charges

In many cases City records can be provided electronically. However, when copies are produced, fees apply. Payment by check or cash. Typical prices are noted below:

  • Standard (8-1/2 by 11-inch or 11 by 17-inch) sheets are 15 cents per page.
  • Plan sheets are $5 per page for requests that are able to be copied in-house.
  • Plan sheets that require off site duplication, vary in price.
  • CDs of digitized plans are $10 per disk.
