Community Development

As the county enters Phase 3, the Public Services building (housing Environmental Health, Community Development, and Public Works) located at 2025 NE Kresky Ave., Chehalis, is now open for public entry with some restrictions. Due to the size of the lobby, traffic is being limited; therefore, customers may have to wait in line outside of the building. For those who choose in person service, you will be escorted into the building by county staff to help ensure the safety of customers and staff, alike.

We ask that you pay attention to signage as you wait outside of the building as well as when you enter the building. The signage will guide you to observe social distancing and sanitation measures. We do also ask that, for the protection of our employees, to please wear a mask or other facial covering inside of our buildings if you are medically able, although it is not a requirement. If you do not have a mask, we do have a supply for you to use.

If you would like to avoid the wait in line, we will continue to accept applications in our dropbox, electronically or by mail. We encourage customers to continue to use these services as well as web and phone services. Please note: The dropbox is open 8 am - 4 pm, Monday - Friday, excluding holidays.
