Contact: Ross Caron, Bureau of Development Services 503.823.4268 

The City of Portland, Bureau of Development Services asks its customers and construction industry stakeholders to help shape how up to 250,000 people per day view Portland.

The Bureau Development Services (BDS) is calling attention to the Bureau of Technology Services (BTS) PortlandMaps Beta project. BDS realizes our customer’s / stakeholders dependence on records and information presented at the website and urges them to provide feedback on the exciting changes/improvements BTS is making to the Portland Maps webpage.

Important information within utilized daily by construction industry stakeholders:

  • Access BDS permit and enforcement records for a property
  • Other City Bureau information on utilities, garbage haulers, zoning, crime statistics and transportation
  • Access to Multnomah County records including property legal description, ownership, and tax assessment information
  • Information on area schools, parks, noise contour, elevations, earthquake / flood hazard, and MORE!

Important changes that BTS would like you to try in the Beta version and comment on:

  • New mobile device viewing options
  • “Sharing” information through text, email, or on social media
  • Changes in how information is organized and presented

What additional information would you like to see presented there?  How does the print option, search option, and explanation of information being presented work for you?
