Property research on the Web

   King County citizens can now do their own property research without ever leaving home, thanks to the Geographical Information Systems staff at the King County Department of Development and Environmental Services. By logging onto the DDES website at www.metrokc.gov/ddes, citizens can access Parcel Locator application, which tracks property by parcel number, street address, or street intersection. The parcel locator then presents citizens with a map of the desired area. Customers need only click on the desired parcel on the map. Call (206) 296-6682.
