NEW - Lot Combinations:

Planning & Community Development Department is now the lead department for review of Lot Combination applications.  Applications should be submitted at the front counter of Planning & Community Development.  They will be checked for completeness and zoning.  Please note that required legal descriptions for existing lots and for proposed lots are not reviewed for correctness by Island County.  It is recommended that you have legal descriptions reviewed by a licensed surveyor or a Title Company prior to submittal to our department.  Once approved by Planning & Community Development the approved application must be recorded at the office of the Island County Auditor.  You will be asked to provide a tax certificate from the Island County Treasurer's Office showing taxes paid for all parcels involved.  For questions about the review process please contact Planning Technician Cindy White at (360) 678-7818 or Permit Manager Kelly Whitney at (360) 678-7820.
