Apply For My Permit

Construction drawings and supporting documentation are required to show the project's scope and illustrate that the proposed work will meet all applicable codes. Since every project is unique, there may be some situations where you will be asked to provide additional information.

Permit fees are based on the valuation of the work approved for construction. Fees will be determined during the plan review stage of your permit. To estimate permit fees, fee schedules are available online, or you can call Permitting Services staff at (503) 823-7357.

If you are hiring a contractor to do work on your project, they must be registered with the State of Oregon and carry a current CCB license
