All BDS Offices Closed Monday, February 17, 2014 in observance of Presidents’ Day

City of Portland, Bureau of Development Services

(February 6, 2014) The Bureau of Development Services (BDS) is acting on its commitment to provide regular and timely information to customers on service level impacts.  In observance of the Presidents' Day Holiday on February 17, 2014, BDS offices will be closed and we want you to be aware of the following:

  • BDS will not be able to issue trade permits applied for through the State’s online ePermits system on Monday, February 17, 2014.  If you use the State ofOregon ePermits system to obtain a trade permit on February 17, 2014, you will not be able to request an inspection on that permit through the City ofPortland IVR system until Tuesday, February 18, 2014 by mid-morning. 
  • Inspections requested for the week of February 18 - 21, 2014 following Presidents’ Day may have an increased chance of being delayed or set-over.  This is a temporary situation and the impact (if any) on requested inspections will be largely dependent on the number of inspections requested by permit holders.

We appreciate the understanding and patience of our customers and community for these temporary changes or delays in services.
