An amendment is a change to an application or permit. For issued permits, you may request an amendment to move a use start date, extend a use end date, add or change scope of work, or update contacts or addresses.
This article provides an overview of the amendment process for changes to issued permits. For a complete list of amendments and links to step-by-step instructions, refer to our help article What Changes Can I Make on My Street Use Application or Permit.
Start the amendment process from your original permit in your My Records list.
When you click the Make Changes button, a list of applicable amendments displays. The amendments that display depend on the type of permit and the status of your application.
After you fill out and submit your amendment application on the Seattle Services Portal, it goes to Street Use for review. When the review is complete and approved, and fees are paid or billed, the amendment is issued.
When the amendment is issued, your original permit record is updated as follows:
- Use information and start and end dates are updated to reflect the approved amendment.
- Approved documents from the amendment, such as a revised Right of Way Impact Plan or Traffic Control Plan are copied to your original record.
- A new permit document is generated and added to your original record.
- The parent permit expiration date is updated if applicable.
- Scheduled inspections are added or updated if applicable.
After the information from your amendment is updated on your original permit, the amendment is closed. In our example below, we have two closed amendments and one new amendment we just submitted. All inspections are performed on the original permit. If you need to print a copy of your newly revised permit, go to your original record.
