Planning and Development Services

Andy Back, Manager

 

Welcome! Planning and Development Services is a division within Washington County's Department of Land Use and Transportation (LUT). We have three sections:

Building Services

We work with developers, consultants, contractors, residents and the public to ensure that construction projects in unincorporated areas of the county are permitted and constructed in accordance with federal, state and local laws and codes.

Current Planning Services

We work with developers, consultants, residents and the public to ensure that development in unincorporated areas of the county complies with state, Metro, and Washington County plans, policies and codes. We also process complaints regarding potential improper uses or conditions on property in unincorporated areas of the county.

Long Range Planning

We prepare and maintain the county's planning documents and ordinances, including the Comprehensive Framework Plan for the Urban Area, the Rural/Natural Resource Plan, all Community Plans for urban unincorporated areas, and the countywide Transportation Plan.
