Frequently Asked Questions

When is Permits Online available?

Permits Online is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Like any other website, there is an occasional need for maintenance. We try to schedule maintenance on Saturdays between 7 a.m. and noon. If other non-routine maintenance is required, we will post a message at the top of the BDS Permits Online webpage. We recommend you bookmark this page.

Heartbleed Security Notice

A serious security vulnerability known as "Heartbleed" was recently discovered in OpenSSL, a popular software library commonly used by many websites on the internet to encrypt communication between a user's computer and a web server.

PortlandOregon.gov is NOT affected by this vulnerability as it does not use the OpenSSL software library. Please rest assured we are dedicated to protecting your security on this website.
