Important Message Concerning the Seattle Municipal Code (SMC)

Starting in October 2014 the City of Seattle will be moving support and hosting of the SMC to Municode Inc. using their MunicodeNEXT product and we anticipate the migration will be completed by 5 January 2015 at which time the City supported site will be deactivated.

Unfortunately, for the next few months you may experience a short message recommending you update your Internet Explorer browser until the City transitions to IE11 in January. You can disregard this message and close the message banner using the close button on the right side of the banner. If you are using IE8 or 9 you may not have all of the features of the site available to you until you upgrade.

Here are some links to the MunicodeNEXT based SMC as well as some information to make the transition easier.     Seattle Municipal Code      New Features/System Requirements and tutorial link.

You are encouraged to try the page and begin using it as your source to the SMC.
