Homeowners must apply for a permit at the building department that has
jurisdiction over their city or county. To find your local building department,
you can call your nearest city hall and ask what building jurisdiction you
should contact for your permit or check out the links below. Be sure to
mention your address and the type of work you are planning.
The following are links to the building departments in the Tri-County
area of Washington, Clackamas and Multnomah counties, to all building jurisdictions
in the state of Oregon, and as a courtesy to our neighbors to the north,
to the building departments of SW Washington.
