Process for Homeowners 

Any construction on your property including remodeling, adding a deck, driveway or fence, re-landscaping or demolition will require review. Exceptions to this review include any interior remodel that doesn't change the footprint of the structure, doesn't alter the ground or increase impervious surface. Before you begin any project call the Oregon Utility Notification Center at 811 before you dig.
