Update to Permit Center Service Hours Beginning December 19, 2019

The Development Services Center will be CLOSED all day on Thursdays starting December 19, 2019 until March 2020.

Why is the Permit Center schedule changing?  The City of Portland is undergoing upgrades to the permitting database software, with a new launch date in February 2020. This technology upgrade will include Urban Forestry permit application intake, review, and issuance of permits in addition to the review, permitting, and inspection processes of building and development projects by the Bureau of Development Services and all inter-Bureau partner agencies. The Thursday closure provides City staff with time to test and train in the new system. Thank you for your patience during this transition period.  Click here for more information:

Beginning December 19, the updated Urban Forestry service hours will be as follows:

All Day closure Thursday from December 19

Upcoming Permit Center Holiday Closures:
