Before you begin, get to know your property and the requirements for your planned project. Do you need Homeowners Association approval in advance? Will your project require a permit? Find out the basics to start your project on the right path and avoid potential delays along the way. Tips on Getting Started...
Most construction and remodeling projects will need approval from the city in the form of an application or permit, sometimes from more than one city department depending on the project. The city is required to ensure projects developed within the city meet local and state rules and regulations. Other outside agencies may also require review and approval as applicable. Locate instructions, permit applications and associated fees required for your project. Apply for permits.
We currently welcome electronic submittal of your applications, plans and documents. Please see the ‘Building in Beaverton Apply’ pages for further information, instructions and options for submitting electronically.
The city will be processing all Planning, Site Development and Building applications and permits electronically as of March 4, 2019.
