These assessments will help the City access resources for recovery efforts throughout our community. It will also help the bureau understand the scope of damage.

Inspectors are prioritizing the most impacted areas and structures in each Neighborhood District. BDS inspectors will inform property owners of possible structural concerns and provide information to help them repair damage through written notices.

Development Services will work to speed up the permitting process for repair work that requires permits. More information can be found here to help property owners repair damage caused by storms.

The cooperation and understanding of property owners and the public are appreciated as we work together during Portland’s recovery.
