Natural Gas Piping

Seattle City Council is considering a proposal to prohibit the installation of natural gas piping systems in all new buildings. Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections would have authority to exempt natural gas piping systems necessary to install certain natural gas-powered equipment and appliances, such as commercial cooking appliances, on an annual basis where suitable electric alternatives are unavailable. 

Information regarding the proposal, including a link to the legislation, is available at this link. Questions regarding the proposal may be directed to Yolanda Ho of the City Council Central Staff at (206) 256-5989 or via email at yolanda.ho@seattle.gov

Based on community feedback, the schedule for considering the proposal has been extended. The Seattle City Council may take action on or after November 25, 2019. Please send comments to Alisha Dall’Osto in Councilmember Mike O’Brien’s office at: healthybuildings@seattle.gov or to all councilmembers at council@seattle.gov.
