During this process, you will work with Portland's public works bureaus to obtain the necessary permits to construct these improvements. Once your project is permitted and completed, the improvements become public assets that are maintained permanently by the city.
Beginning at the earliest stages of project planning, Portland's public works infrastructure bureaus: the Bureau of Environmental Services, Portland Water Bureau, and the Portland Bureau of Transportation, will work with you and your project team to efficiently plan, design, permit, inspect and accept public works improvements. These lead agencies work closely with the Parks Bureau, Fire Bureau and Bureau of Development Services to complete a comprehensive and efficient review of your public works permitting request.
Please call the Public Works Permitting hotline at 503-823-1987 or email email@example.com for more information about the process.
Public infrastructure improvements include street, sidewalk, sewer, and stormwater management facilities.
