× 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.
× What are my property setbacks?
Setbacks for buildings and structures are determined by the zoning district in which development is occurring, the type of structure, and the number of floors.

General requirements for yards is 10 feet for street frontage and 5 feet from the property line for the interior side and rear.

There are additional requirements for vision clearance and vehicular access, and exceptions for accessory buildings and specific lots.
