Snohomish County is Washington’s third-most populous county and the birthplace of Boeing 747 and 787 aircrafts. While part of the greater Seattle-Tacoma metro area, the county remains economically and geographically diverse. Areas near the county’s southern border with King County are home to both high-tech companies and their workers, as well as typical service industries. Meanwhile, agriculture powers local economies in the northern and western parts of the county, and there are more people employed in manufacturing than in any other county in the state.
These factors have led to significant growth in the county’s population and development in recent decades. To manage land use approvals, building permits, and inspection operations, the county is using the govService Amanda enterprise platform.
