Development Services Division


The Development Services Division of Public Works is devoted to ensuring that development within the City of Federal Way meets current city codes and development standards. The Development Services Division works to accomplish this goal by being involved in all types and phases of development within the city, providing technical project review, project permitting and construction inspection.

Our goal is to work closely with developers, contractors and property owners to provide them with a thorough, accurate and timely review of their projects and to provide guidance when needed to help bring projects to fruition.
