Zoning Code Enforcement

Compliance Services enforces the City's zoning code (Title 33) including environmental zone violations and enforcing regulations and conditions of approvals tied to land use review cases. Staff also enforce a section in Title 16 of the Portland City Code regarding automobile businesses parking and/or storing vehicles that are being repaired or displayed for sale in the right-of-way.

To ensure compliance with the zoning code, staff also conduct inspections and issue approvals on Home Occupation Permits and on Zoning Permits for developments such as landscaping, fences, sheds and driveways.
