The Building Department allows for the submittal of revisions on existing permits, only after the permit has been issued.  If you have revisions to your project that is still in review, please include those when you are responding to Plan Review comments at the Applicant Resubmit Task.  Without prior access to a project, and/or the system you will be unable to submit for a revision.  

If you have any questions please ask us.  You can call us at 503-681-6144 or email us at

You will be prompted to read and agree to terms of using software.  Next you will need to complete the Application Information form.  Please enter your existing building permit number, and the revision number.  There is an example on the form to prompt you.  If the revision results in a change of value, either additionally or decreased, change the submittal valuation, otherwise, leave it at $ 0.00. A change of value does also require a revised application. Make sure to complete all required fields.
