Steps 4 & 5 - Final Plan & Stamped Plan

Portland Public Works Permit Process

STEPS 4 & 5 – Final Plan & Stamped Plan

During these final steps in the public works permit process, you and your development team prepare the final plans for your public works improvements. These engineering plans should include all necessary details about your development site and final public improvement design requirements, as well as all standard City details needed to construct them.

Before approving your final plans, the City may require that you meet with public works permitting staff to review and refine your final project design. If this is required, or if there are remaining technical issues that need to be addressed, the City may request a final check of the plans before final approval (this can often be done via electronic submittal).

At the successful end of plan review, the city will sign off on your final plans and request signed and stamped plans for City signature.

CAUTION: Make sure that the forms and plans that you file are complete and accurately reflect your previously-reviewed development objectives, design concepts and development plans. The City will charge you additional fees if you need to request additional meetings to complete this step in the permitting process.
