Programs We Support
Residential streets, storm-water sewers and facilities, sidewalks, and speed bumps are some of the improvements we help finance and assess property for.
System Development Charges (SDC)
These are charges assessed for new facilities for accommodating growth. System Development Charges can be assessed to support streets, parks, water or sewer and storm-water facilities.
Water SDC call Portland Water Bureau at (503) 823-7368
Property owners in the City of Portland are generally required to maintain the sidewalks abutting their property. When City sidewalk inspectors determine that repair work needs to be done, property owners have the option of having this work done by the City, and our office will provide long-term, low-interest financing for these repairs.
Code Enforcement and Nuisance Abatement
The Bureau of Development Services (BDS) enforces the City Code regarding building safety and maintenance issues. Our Office assess properties for violations and fines generated by their efforts, and collect these charges for code violations and nuisance abatement.
Note: You must contact the Bureau of Development Services to find out what the violations are against your property.
