Development in unincorporated Washington County must comply with plans, policies and codes from the County, state and Metro. Staff work with developers, consultants and citizens to ensure it’s done safely and correctly.


Many projects require development review approval before building permits are issued. Staff reviews all proposals to ensure they adhere to the Community Development Code (CDC). The CDC regulates land use and development activities in unincorporated areas of the County.
