Development review is an evaluation of how land is used and how buildings are designed and constructed. Planners use the Zoning Code as a tool to determine the use of land and characteristics of buildings, while plan reviewers and engineers use Building Codes to determine safe and acceptable construction methods. BDS staff along with other City of Portland Bureau staff are involved with development review.
