Planning & Zoning - What can I do on my site?

 

What you need to know about your site:

  • To determine the zoning regulations applicable to a site, you must first find the site on the official zoning maps.
  • The appropriate map will show the base zone that is applied to the site.
  • It will also show if the site is subject to any overlay zones or plan districts, and if the site contains a historical landmark or recreational trail.
  • You then look up all the corresponding regulations in the Zoning Code.

If you cannot meet the standards and requirements, then you probably need a Land Use Review.

Most of the information about your property and building is available at the Resource/Records Counter at the Development Services Center.

For more information, visit the planning and zoning staff at the Development Services Center or call (503) 823-7526.

If your property is located within unincorporated Multnomah County, you can get planning documents and information online at http://www.co.multnomah.or.us/dbcs/LUT/land_use/.
