Land Use Reviews

Information on specific land use reviews, procedures, timelines and submittal requirements.

Is a Land Use Review Required?

Depending on the zoning at the site, and the uses or developments that are proposed, a project may or may not require a land use review.

Land Use Review Fees

A separate fee is charged for each type of land use review. The fee includes portions that are allocated to the Bureau of Development Services (BDS), the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), the Water Bureau, the Bureau of Environmental Services (BES), the Fire Bureau, Parks and the Hearings Officer.

Land Use Review Appeals

Land use review decisions may be appealed. The appeal process, fee and hearing body depend on the procedure type of the land use review decision being appealed. All local appeals are heard in a hearing open to the public.
