Step 6 - Permit Issuance

Portland Public Works Permit Process 

STEP 6 – Permit Issuance

During the permit review and issuance phase, you and your development team submit signed plans for your public works improvements. These engineering plans will be signed by the approving City public works bureaus as approved for construction by your contractor.

Before issuing the permit for construction, the city requires that any remaining documents and items be submitted and approved. These items may include but are not limited to:

  • Application documents
  • Performance guarantee
  • Contractor's insurance
  • Signed permit

Download these forms from the Permit Forms page.

The city collects an estimated fee for the construction inspection portion of the project. The amount of the fee will have been refined from the estimate provided at the end of Step 2 when the city approves your concept plans.

Once all documents have been received and approved, and all estimated construction fees have been paid, the permit can be issued and the construction phase of the project can begin. 

Please call the Public Works Permitting hotline at 503-823-1987 or email publicworkspermitting@portlandoregon.gov for more information.
