Land Use & Transportation (LUT)

Offices closed - Services available online


A letter from LUT Director Stephen Roberts


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation (LUT) is providing important services to our community while abiding by Governor Brown’s “Stay Home. Save Lives” Executive Order No. 20-12.


Many of LUT's services are “essential.” While it's not exactly "business as usual" at LUT, we are still conducting our business. Most of our employees are working remotely, but we have found alternative ways to deliver many of our services so that development and building projects – which are critical to sustaining the economy – are able to continue on schedule. See our list of remote resources


All of us at Washington County appreciate the public’s continued efforts to stay home, maintain physical distancing and to wash hands frequently. We appreciate your ability to adapt to a largely online environment, and we thank you for supporting our employees, whether they are working from home or in the field.
