Lake Oswego was the tenth jurisdiction statewide to use the program. Other pioneers included Springfield, Cottage Grove, Lebanon, Jefferson County, Milwaukie, West Linn, Lincoln City, Florence and Junction City. The program is administered by the Department of Consumer and Business Services’ Building Codes Division. The program has the capacity to serve all 134 local building departments in Oregon.
The e-permitting system was developed using software from Accela, Inc., which facilitates shared services approaches for state and local governments.
The Building Department strives to make more services accessible 24/7 online. Such services limit the need for contractors, developers and citizens to come into the Building counter at City Hall during the hours we are open.
