In response to community requests for notification when large remodels, addition and alterations occur to existing homes, Portland City Council has approved changes to Title 24, Portland Building Regulations, establishing a new Major Residential Alteration and Addition (MRAA) permit category. MRAA permit applications will require a 35-day notice to specific recognized neighborhood organizations and to surrounding neighbors prior to permit issuance. Creation of this new permit type is related to additional changes to residential demolition delay provisions in City Code section 24.55.200 that will go into effect April 20, 2015.
