Portland Public Works Permit Process
STEPS 4 and 5 – Plan Review and Final Check
During these final steps in the public works permit process, you and your development team prepare final plans for your public works improvements. These engineering plans should include all necessary details about your development site and final public improvement design requirements, as well as all standard City details needed to construct them.
Before approving your Final plans, the City may require that you meet with public works permitting staff to review and refine your final project design. If this is required, or if there are remaining technical issues that need to be addressed, the City may request a final check of the plans before final approval (this can often be done via electronic submittal).
The City collects a fixed fee when you request the plan review meeting. The amount of the fee is set by the City at the end of Step 2 when the city approves your concept plans.
At the successful end of plan review, the city will sign off on your final design plans and request stamped plans for City signature.
CAUTION: Make sure that the forms and plans that you file are complete and accurately reflect your previously-reviewed development objectives, design concepts and development plans. The City will charge you additional fees if you need to request additional meetings to complete this step in the permitting process.
Request a Design Development Meeting
You request in-take review and plan review check meetings by filing plan review engineering plans along with your payment of the fixed fee amount that the City set following your concept development meeting. Be sure to include the following two completed forms with your plan review plans:
