Capital Improvement Projects, Development on City Owned or Managed Sites & Projects in the Right-of-Way

This page is for Capital Improvement Projects, Development on City Owned or Managed sites, & Projects in the Right-of-Way. These forms DO NOT APPLY TO PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT.

For these projects, Title 11, Trees requires that applicants involve Urban Forestry at the preliminary project design phase in order to identify potential impacts and opportunities to retain existing trees, as well as any measures required to protect trees on site, on adjacent sites, or in the street (11.50.040 C. 2, City and Street Trees).

Please fill out a Preliminary Project Design Form describing in as much detail as is possible the scope of your project and the potential impact on trees, and send it to trees@portlandoregon.gov
