Current Planning

Andy Back, Planning and Development Services Manager

Tom Harry, Principal Planner

Current Planning works 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.

Development Review

In many cases, Development Review approval must be obtained prior to the issuance of building permits. Our Development Review staff reviews development proposals to ensure compliance with the Community Development Code (CDC) which regulates land use and development activities in unincorporated areas of the County. The CDC is intended to implement the County's Community Plans as well as state and Metro requirements.

Code Compliance

Code Compliance staff process complaints regarding potential improper uses or conditions on property in unincorporated areas of the County. Contact the Code Compliance team at
