Building & Permitting


Save time and apply online.

All new construction and development, as well as most remodeling projects require a permit in Estacada. Commercial and industrial projects, including new construction or a remodel of an existing building, as well as new residential development and other actions requiring land-use and site review, must follow prescribed city processes: start with a pre-application conference.

If you are unfamiliar with the development process or you are unsure how to proceed with your project, please contact City Staff. The City of Estacada contracts with Northwest Code Professionals to provide building, electrical, plumbing and mechanical inspections throughout the city. Staff also reviews City development codes and ordinances to ensure buildings are safe and meet zoning requirements. The City’s contracted inspectors monitor construction through the inspection process.
