Applications and Forms

Washington County applications and forms are available in pdf format for you to print out, fill in the information and either mail in, fax to us (503-846-3993) or submit in person.  Please see the categories under Applications/Forms for the type of permit you would like to apply for.  The Building, Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanical, Grading and Manufactured Home Permit applications can now be filled out online and printed out to submit to us. 

Certain permit types include review by a plans examiner and by the Development Services Division, (located in the same office) in order to be accepted for submittal.  If your permit is for structural work or change of use (i.e. converting a garage to dwelling space) on a single family dwelling, submittal must be in person.  If your permit is for any type of work excluding electrical on a commercial structure, please use the appointment request form to schedule an appointment with a commercial plans examiner.

If you choose to either mail in or fax the permit application to us, you may pay for the permit fees using a debit or credit card (Mastercard, Visa, Discover) or you can set up a trust account with us.  The Bankcard Authorization form and the Trust Account Application are found under the Payments & Fees area of our website. 

Contractors applying for electrical, plumbing and mechanical only permits may purchase permits online through e-permits
