Please note: The City of Newport Community Development Department is pleased to announce that effective March 7, 2016, it is implementing a new permitting software program consistent with the State ePermitting system. Newport joins a growing list of jurisdictions offering ePermitting services statewide to provide: online access to apply, pay for, and receive permits 24/7; automated inspection scheduling by phone or computer; comprehensive permit tracking & data collection; electronic plan review (within the next year); mobile app for inspectors & contractors.
To that end, the City is working with the Oregon Building Codes Division to provide local training to contractors on how to use the ePermitting system. The first training is being offered on February 29, 2016, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the City of Newport Council Chambers located at 169 SW Coast Highway, Newport. For more information, please contact City Building Official Joseph Lease at 541-574-0627.
