Property research and records

Maps Online

Maps Online can answer many of your mapping and property information questions. It is also integrated with Community Development's permitting system, so you can see permits that have been issued for a particular property. Instructions for these and other features are available below.

Maps Online is brought to you by the Geographical Information Systems department. For questions or comments about Maps Online or the Property Information Center, contact GIS at their technical support line (360) 397-2002 ext. 4652.

Instructions for using Maps Online to do research

Find Zoning and Setbacks
