Customer Advisory (COVID-19)

Multnomah County's Land Use Planning Division is asking the public to transact all business remotely – by phone, email or mail – to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Land Use Planning offices will be closed to the public until further notice. In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), State and County guidelines, Land Use Planning staff are working from home (teleworking).

Our ability to respond to general zoning inquiries will be diminished as we must prioritize State-mandated deadlines that remain in effect.

  • If you have question about your property, zoning or land use in rural Multnomah County? Ask our Planner of the Day or communicate with us by email at or by phone at 503-988-3043
  • If you would like to submit an application, pre-file request, or pre-application request, please fill out our Land Use Planning Submittals Form to start the process.
    • Please note: Land use applications that are mailed or emailed will not be identified as "received" until payment is received. A Land Use Planner will contact you as soon as we are able with instructions for providing payment for submitted applications

Updates will be provided as soon as new information becomes available. We thank you in advance for your patience.
