Need an Event Permit? Visit the Public Permitting and Services Portal!
Getting started? First-time users need to register for an account (watch the "How-to Register" video). Then, to apply for a permit, log-in, click "Right-of-Way" and select "Create a Record."
Once an account is created, users can:
- Apply for an event permit (found under the "right-of-way" section online)
- Track status
- Conduct a search (Watch the "How to Search" video)
Permits are required for events in the right-of-way – such as races, parades, filming activities and block parties – to ensure the events are safe and do not conflict with other road uses. For more information, call 503-846-7623 or email.
Event permits only authorize activities within the right-of-way. They do not authorize any modifications within the right-of-way. Modifications require a Right-of-Way Permit.
Please allow four weeks processing time for event permit applications.
For information about events on private property - such as concerts, weddings, festivals - please contact Current Planning's Code Compliance section:
