Building & Development Services
The City of Portland is in the midst of revitalization and exciting new development. The City's Development Services Department is charged with laying out and implementing a workable plan for such growth.

Development in Portland is regulated in order to promote the health, safety and welfare of current and future citizens. Providing a consistent and streamlined approach ensures a fair application of ordinances and regulations.

Project Requirements
Every project in the City of Portland must: 
  • Be inspected during construction
  • Be on a properly platted lot
  • Have a valid site and/or building permit
  • Have the proper zoning for the intended use
  • Receive a certificate of occupancy

These five tasks are administered through our planning and zoning, permitting and inspection processes.

If you have any questions, please contact the Development Services Department by calling (361) 777-4553.
