- Urban Forestry Review
A checksheet is sent to the applicant when a reviewer needs additional information or a correction has to be made to the plans. When you have gathered the additional information or made the corrections, bring the plans/information to Permitting Services, located on the 2nd floor of 1900 SW 4th Avenue, Portland, OR. Reviewers will be notified that a checksheet response has been received, and review will continue.
