The goal of the Permit Division is to assist the public by providing an efficient and stream-lined process as well as prompt and courteous service. Permit staff is responsible for maintaining and updating information in order to assist citizens in understanding and applying the permitting regulations provided by the Monroe Municipal Code.


(Permitting, Planning, Building, Engineering)


We will be opening to the public on a limited basis beginning July 6th, 2021.  Although electronic permit application submittals are the preferred route, the city will be providing citizens the opportunity for in-person meetings to assist them. To speak with a representative for Development Review Services or to make a submittal appointment, please call (360) 863-4501.

We appreciate your cooperation in preparing to modify our schedules and hope this will allow us all to ease back into a normal routine.
