Development

The City's Development Services Department usually requires a permit for projects in Oak Harbor that involve new or changed uses of property, construction or alterations or additions to a building, even if the renovations are interior.

In order to understand what types of activity are exempt from permitting, go online to the Oak Harbor Municipal Code (see link below), or call the Development Services Department at 360-279-4510 to speak with a permit specialist, or visit the Department. Even if a building permit is not required, your project may, however, still be subject to other applicable codes and development standards.
