Building permits must be obtained prior to any structural modifications or new construction in town-limits. 


  1. Applicants with projects in-town limits must complete a Town application and submit the required fees to the Town of Cathlamet.
  2. Once your application, attachments and any fees are submitted to the Town, it will be forwarded to Wahkiakum County Building & Planning for plan review and inspections. 

Please refer to the County website or contact Dave Hicks at (360) 795-3067 to determine if you need assistance determining if project requires a permit.
