Building Permits and Inspections

A permit is needed to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system.

When you obtain a permit, a certified inspector ensures the work is done safely and to code.

Building permit services are available at Gresham City Hall Monday through Friday, 8:00 am-4:00 pm.


Schedule/cancel inspection

Inspections are performed daily between 8:30 am - 3:30 pm. Submit your request before midnight for a next-day inspection.
