Building Permit Applications

Why do I need a permit?
For most of us, our home is our most important investment.  When making home improvements, protect the safety and value of your home and family by getting necessary permits and using licensed contractors and craftsmen.  State and local laws require that permits be obtained for certain projects.  To find out if you need a permit, please contact the City of Lafayette at 503-864-2451.

Where can I obtain permits?
Structural, plumbing and mechanical permit applications are available below or at Lafayette City Hall.  Completed applications must be submitted along with appropriate plans to City Hall for approval.  Electrical permits are issued through Yamhill County Building and Planning.
