New Legibility Requirements for Some Applications

DPD continues to streamline how we process permits and review applications for short plats, lot boundary adjustments, unit lot subdivision, and full subdivision applications. We are also adjusting requirements to meet King County recording standards. Therefore, effective August 1, 2014, the following items must be legible and easy to clearly read:

  • Linework
  • Handwritten corrections
  • Grey scale
  • Symbols

When you submit your application, you need to  make sure that any overlays or superimposed layers or lines on your plan does not make any information difficult to read and/or unrecordable.

For more information, see Tip 213A, Application Requirements for Short Subdivisions and Unit Lot Subdivisions, and Tip 213B, Application Requirements for Lot Boundary Adjustments.
