Portland Online Permitting System (POPS)


Portland Online Permitting System (POPS) is a program that will move the City’s paper-based development review process to a more streamlined and efficient online digital system. When complete, it will make our services more accessible to the community and increase the efficiency of the permitting process. The technology platform is a critical step to removing manual processes and increasing customer accessibility.

The City’s Bureau of Development Services (BDS) and Bureau of Technology Services (BTS) are co-sponsors of this large and complex program, previously known as the Information Technology Advancement Project (ITAP).

The POPS team is transitioning from a scoping phase, which established strong planning and governance structures, into the development and production phases.

For more information on POPS, please contact Dan Coté at 503-823-7925 or
