No. King County’s purchase of the Silver Cloud Inn was a private real estate transaction and did not require the City’s approval. King County consulted with the Mayor and city staff regarding its intention to purchase the Silver Cloud Inn consistent with the terms of the state enabling legislation (House Bill 1070). Housing is an allowed use in this location, and the City is supportive of regional solutions to housing for all. The County will be required to obtain a building permit to change the occupancy of the Silver Cloud Inn from a hotel use to the HTH use.
