FAQs

  • Q:

    × Who is responsible for obtaining permits?

    The property owner is responsible for obtaining all permits for structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and manufactured dwelling setup. A contractor or family member can apply for permits on the property owner's behalf, but the permit is ultimately the property owner's responsibility.

    All electrical and plumbing permits are issued by the Oregon State Building Codes Division (BCD); the Coos Bay Field Office is conveniently located inside Coos Bay City Hall, just down the hall from Coos Bay's Building Department. Contact the BCD Coos Bay Field Office at 541-266-1098.

  • Q:

    × Can I reserve a gazebo or picnic table at Mingus Park?

    The amphitheater and adjacent gazebo, near the swimming pool, can be reserved with a Special Event Application; there is no fee for this. The gazebo by the children's play area and picnic tables at Mingus Park are not able to be reserved, but are available on a first-come first-served basis. Please be courteous so that everyone can enjoy the facilities.

  • Q:

    × How do I apply for a land use application?

    The Planning Division handles land use applications. There are a number of different land use applications including annexations, variances, right-of-way vacations, conditional uses, site plan and architectural reviews, land divisions, and code or text amendments. Any type of property improvement or development may trigger a land use review so it is important to check with the Planning Division to discuss your intentions prior to starting a project.
