Commercial Building Permit Completeness Checklist Requirement
The Bureau of Development Services is experiencing record-setting workloads. (See service level update from May 3rd, 2016.) In an effort to increase productivity and efficiency, the Life Safety Plan Review section is implementing a Completeness Checklist to be required with building permit applications for Commercial and Multifamily projects. This form will increase transparency for customers ready to submit for permit and will allow staff to quickly verify that plans are complete and ready to review.
The checklist consolidates current submittal requirements, and organizes project information for ease of verification by applicants and reviewers. It does not increase the amount of information that is needed for a project. To learn more about submitting for a commercial building permit, please see https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bds/36659.
The Completeness Checklist for Commercial Projects is now available online at: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/bds/article/571544. The form is required to be completed prior to meeting with a permit technician for application setup.
