Does Maintenance Require a Permit

By now I’m sure you have seen this article in the Kitsap Sun. In an attempt to keep from overruling the DCD, the hearing examiner has effectively outlawed the maintenance of every private driveway in the county if it is done without a permit. The examiner stated that “adding gravel on top of the existing driveway must be considered an alteration — defined as “change” — regardless of any possible widening.” He went on to add that “ if the code had included an exemption for maintenance with no widening of the driveway, the issue might have been decided differently.”
