Following a multi-year planning and development process, we are excited to replace our current website on September 26 with a new design that will serve as a digital gateway to a wide variety of public services and information.

  • Planning and protecting the uses of the land

Working in coordination with our city, regional and state government partners, about 300 LUT employees provide  transportation, planning, permitting and road maintenance services.

Our land use, planning, development review and building permitting/inspection functions are  in the Public Services Building (PSB), 155 N First Avenue, Suite 350, in Hillsboro. Our road-related functions are  at the Walnut Street Center (WSC), 1400 SW Walnut St.  Visit LUT Office Locations and Hours for more information.
