FAQs

  • Q:

    × When does my permit expire?

    Building permits expire if there are no inspections for 180 days. The best way to keep your permit from expiring is to make progress and have regular inspections as you work. If you can't work within a 180-day period and don't wish to abandon the project, you may submit a written request to the Community Development Department to extend your permit for an additional 180 days.

  • 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.
