Which Bureaus Are Involved in Permitting?

The Bureau of Development Services partners with other City bureaus throughout the development review process. These bureaus all have a role in permitting infrastructure and all have staff co-located in the Development Services Center. The staff involved in these reviews are located at the Development Services Center Building. We have created the following organizational charts containing contact information for the various bureaus involved in development review.

General questions about the development codes and process, or a project you are working on should be directed to the BDS Front Desk Team at 503-823-7300 to be routed to the appropriate group. If you have questions about a specific permit, you can use to find contact information for assigned reviewers. Contact information for the responsible managers at the other City bureaus is provided in the event you want to follow up with an individual bureau assigned to your project.
