Residential Permit Night


Residential Permit Night is temporarily suspended due to the implementation of our new web-based permitting software that is placing additional demands on our staff.
We look forward to resuming Residential Permit Night in March 2020.
Thank you for your patience!

Residential Permit Night • 1st & 3rd Thursday of the Month

Working on a home improvement project? Can’t make it to the Development Services Center during regular business hours? In 2019, the Bureau of Development Services is offering Residential Permit Night on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month (excluding holidays). The Development Services Center is open from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Residential Permit Nights, where you can visit staff from BDS, the Bureau of Environmental Services, Portland Bureau of Transportation and the Water Bureau to discuss or start permitting your residential project.
