FAQs

  • Q:

    × When can I start work?

    Construction can begin when the permit is issued, and must be started within 180 days of the permit being issued. If your project takes more than six months to complete, you’ll need to request an extension and schedule a progress inspection every six months until it is finished.

    You must build according to the plans you submitted with your application. Any substantial change requires submitting a revised plan and may require additional fees. If you need to make changes in your building plans, please call or visit the City of Coos Bay Building Codes Division. Your permit must be available onsite throughout construction.

  • Q:

    × How can I find out about work being done on a property?

    Current building permit records are availble online at the State of Oregon’s ePermitting website. Just enter the property address to find all current permits; if you search by address, be sure to include the city or ZIP code or you'll get results from across the state.

  • Q:

    × Do I need approval to put a sign on my property?

    Yes, you need approval to put a sign on your property. You need to talk to the Planning Division to make sure that what you propose is within the allowed signage for the property. You need a Building Permit for the sign's structure and attachments. If the sign is in the right of way, you need a Right of Way Use Permit.
