City of Portland

One Point of Contact

There are two ways to report a campsite: an online form on the City of Portland’s webpage ( and the online PDX Reporter app for your smartphone. To create an icon for the new app on your phone’s home screen:

1)     visit on your phone’s web browser
2)     sign in using the same username and password created for the City’s website
3)     then pin a shortcut (icon) to your phone’s home screen for quicker access to the online app.

Please note: Not all reports will result in immediate action by the City. Every report will be reviewed and analyzed. Before a cleanup can occur the City will work to move the camp, and to do so in the least traumatic, most compassionate manner. That process, mandated in the settlement of the Anderson v. Portland lawsuit, requires the City to post notification at a camp before cleanup. For more information see Frequently Asked Questions: ENFORCEMENT.

For further assistance, call 503-823-4000. If you are reporting an emergency, call 9-1-1.

Another tool in this new system is the email address This email account will serve as an interagency coordination hub, and is accessed by several partner agencies.
