Where do I get my permit?

Before starting any project, please check with your local building or planning department to assure the work you plan is in accordance with local land use and zoning requirements.

Permits are issued at the City of Redmond, Community Development Department, located at 411 SW 9th St., Redmond, Oregon, and is open Monday through Friday, 9am to noon and 1pm to 4pm, except holidays. Planning and Building applications will only be accepted until 4:00pm each workday. 

Permits are also available via the Quick Permits (E-Permitting) website. This is an online resource for simple, over-the-counter building permits. Homeowners can find information about permits and download permit forms from participating building departments. Licensed contractors can apply and pay for permits online.

How long does it take to get a permit?

A plan review can take a minimum of two weeks for one and two family dwellings. Time frames can change depending on the complexity of the project and the level of information submitted with your application. In addition, the time of year and staff workloads can affect the turn around time on your application.

When you submit your plans, you will be asked to pay the plan review fee.

When your plans have been reviewed, stamped "APPROVED" and signed, one set will be returned to you along with your permit.

When can work start?

When your permit is issued and one set of your "APPROVED" plans returned, work can begin. The permit and plans must be available on the job site and available to the inspector.
