The role of the Building Division is to protect human life, health and property through the enforcement of Washington State Building and related codes. The building code provisions require that buildings and other structures be constructed, altered and used in a manner that protects a building's occupants as well as the general public.


Building Process

The following steps are required to help ensure this minimum level of protection is provided for within the City of Bonney Lake. For details on specific types of permits and forms, please view the Building Permits page.


  1. Submit the appropriate permit application and required fees.
    • Permit forms are available from the Building Permits page and at the Permit Center at the Justice & Municipal Center, Suite 300, 9002 Main Street E, Bonney Lake.
    • Most permits must be applied for in person at the Permit Center at the Justice & Municipal Center, Suite 300. The Permit Center accepts applications between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday.
    • Payments for permits may be made at the Permit Center or through our Online Payment System

  1. Applicable City departments review the permit application, with its accompanying plans and submittal documents. The plan review staff for each department determines if the proposed construction will meet their area of responsibility of the Bonney Lake Municipal Code and State Laws. Corrections or clarification may be required to the application documents. After all departments have approved the application, then the Permit Coordinator will issue the building permits.

  1. After the permit is issued, construction may begin. A prescribed schedule of inspections must occur throughout the construction process. The required inspections ensure that the work proceeds according to approved plans and permitted work. Inspections may be scheduled using the automated Inspection Request line.

  1. When the construction is completed, a final building inspection is required prior to occupancy of any building or space. A Building Inspector will conduct the final inspection. The Inspector will confirm that effected City, County and State department or agencies have approved and signed-off on their requirements. Lastly, the inspector will determine that the required life, health and property protections are provided for the occupancy or use. A Certificate of Occupancy will then be issued. Please note that the City of Bonney Lake does not issue temporary Certificate of Occupancy.

    The City of Bonney Lake is required by the State Building Code Act to enforce the Washington State Building Code, which is an amended version of the 2006 International Building Codes. The State Building Code Council maintains a web site which includes access to the State Building Code (WAC 51.40).  Related Building Code information is also on the web from the International Code Council.
