Development and development review touches everyone. Persons with questions and permit applications for land use, construction, and other improvement projects come to the BDS offices to speak with knowledgeable staff for these services. The Development Services Center (DSC) is sometimes the only contact with the City of Portland that people have. Experiences there shape opinions and the credibility of the City.

Ideal candidates are seeking purposeful work, and are interested in sharing their talents to not just lead our teams, but support them and all stakeholders in enhancing BDS processes.
These supervisors will be change agents within the Bureau, identifying trends within the industry and developing appropriate permit processing responses, as well as being a front-line implementer of the Bureau Technology initiative – Portland Online Permitting System.
This position participates in the Bureau Leadership Team, collaborates with other program supervisors and division managers on the development of Bureau policies and procedures; promotes equitable delivery of services.
