The City of Portland has a new online portal to make applying for permits and plans easier. Review the instructions below to make sure you are ready to begin. All permits shall be submitted online via the City of Portland’s Citizen Self Service (CSS) portal. Online submission of permit applications will help to streamline application intake and will improve transparency for the permitting process.
Please refer to the submission checklists and application forms listed below. Select the submission checklist that is applicable to the project and submit all required materials by following the instructions for How to Apply for a Permit through the Citizen Self Service portal.
NOTE: Starting Monday, April 16, 2018, we will no longer accept permit applications via e-mail. Please submit applications through the new Citizen Self Service portal.
