Important Building Inspection Procedure Changes Effective March 18, 2020 pdf Document

The Building Division offers an online permit purchasing and tracking system called ePermitting. Contractors are able to apply for and purchase building permits for structural, mechanical, and plumbing projects online, submit plans electronically and schedule inspections 24/7 by phone, 1-888-299-2821 or online at BuildingPermits.Oregon.gov. Select the following links for informational ePermitting brochures:   How to Use Oregon ePermitting, How to Schedule an Inspection (IVR Call Flow)Oregon Standard Model Inspection Codes

For Non-Contractors, Building permit applications may be submitted by mail, fax, email or in person at City Hall. Applications should include the completed application form, site plan, construction plans, and value of proposed project. Non-Contractors can still use the ePermitting program to schedule inspections, pay fees, and check permit status; and non-contractors do not need to create an account to access these features! The Plan Review fee may be required at the time of submittal with the balance of the permit fees due upon issuance of the permit. Most permits are issued within two weeks of the date of submittal of a complete application. Applicants will be notified if an application is incomplete with the additional information that is required or to inform you that the permit is ready to be issued. Submit applications to:
