The following information must be submitted when applying for a demolition permit. Since every project is unique, there may be some situations where you will be asked to provide additional information.
Erosion control plan (may be a part of the site plan) or completed simple site erosion control form, if the project will result in ground disturbing activity. Note: Erosion control measures shall be installed, even when a simple site erosion control form has been accepted. See Portland City Code Section 24.55.205 for dust and site control requirements for demolitions of structures with 1 – 4 dwelling units and their related detached accessory structures.
SITE PLAN (Scale site plans to most appropriate scale, e.g. 1”= 10’ or 1/4”= 1’)
- Property lines, with dimensions
- Adjacent streets and any easements
- Property address and R number
- North arrow
- Structure to be demolished and its use
- Tree Plan showing existing trees 12" in trunk diameter or larger on the site, indicating trees to be removed and trees to remain. Trees preserved to meet the requirements of 11.50.040 must have tree preservation fencing shown on the plan.
- Distance between remaining buildings and between remaining buildings and property lines
To submit for a permit, bring the completed building permit application and four (4) copies of site, architectural, and structural plans (for the area of proposed work and areas affected by such work ) along with intake fees to the Development Services Center.
The Bureau of Development Services sells a "Residential Combination" permit package. This allows you to call for all inspections using just the Building Permit (RS) IVR number and pay for all the permits at one time. You will need to submit the trade (mechanical, electrical, and/or plumbing) application(s) signed either by you, if you are doing these portions of the work yourself, or by your licensed subcontractors. If you do not have your completed subcontractor forms when you are applying for your residential permit (RS) you will have to apply for trade permits separately from the building permit. Sub-contractors that you hire must be registered with the State of Oregon and carry the correct licenses in association with their trade.
