Plan Review Process

Plans are required in conjunction with permit applications for new buildings or the remodel, expansion, or change of use of existing buildings. Plans may not be required for simple building repairs or other construction activities that do not affect the structural integrity of the building, public health or safety. Please check with a Permit Technician to see if your project qualifies. Certified plan review staff will review and approve plans prior to issuing a permit to construct.

The process of plan review involves numerous steps. Development Services has attempted to simplify and streamline these processes. Below are links to presentations with step-by-step overviews of both residential and commercial plan review processes. Audio narration will be added soon.

Residential Plans

A comprehensive project guide has been developed in effort to save time and assist with ensuring the plans and application are complete:

Multi-Family, Commercial, and Industrial Plans

Plans for multifamily, commercial, and industrial projects are generally more comprehensive and usually require the involvement of a design professional. A comprehensive commercial project guide has been developed in effort to save time and assist with ensuring the plans and application are complete:

Please see our forms page and services page for additional information. Contact a Project Coordinator at 541-766-6929 or by e-mail if you have any questions related to submittal requirements.

Once the Project Coordinator has all of the information required, residential plan reviews are generally completed within two weeks. Multifamily, commercial, and industrial plan reviews are generally completed within three weeks. A Permit Technician will contact the applicant when the plan review is completed and the permits are ready to issue.
