Portland General Electric Land Use Applications


For over a decade, APG has provided land use permitting services to PGE to site or expand substations in multiple jurisdictions throughout PGE’s service territory. Land use applications have included zone changes, conditional use permits, design review permits and land divisions.  Substations have been sited or expanded in urban and rural areas and in a variety of jurisdictions and zones (rural, residential and industrial).

APG’s role on land use permitting typically involves facilitation of neighborhood meetings, public hearing presentations, and  coordination with PGE and local staff on permit conditions. Screening and buffering the substations for compatibility with nearby uses is often a focus of the land use permitting process.
