Welcome to the Community Development Department

Construction Community and Camas citizens, thank you for your cooperation and understanding during the recent construction Stop Work order.

Effective April 24th all low-risk construction may resume.

All work shall be conducted in accordance with Phase 1 Construction Restart COVID-19 Job Site Requirements.

  • Before work on the projects can resume, all contractors must develop and post a plan at each site that addresses use of the personal protective equipment like masks and gloves, on-site social distancing and sanitation. In addition, a site-specific supervisor will be designated to enforce the safety plan to monitor the health of employees, and employees will undergo training on the new policies.
  • Inspections will commence Monday April 27th, 2020.
  • Applications and plan submittals will be accepted by appointment only.

Again thank you for your cooperation and understanding, now let’s get back to work, stay healty and stay safe.

The Third Avenue entrance at City Hall is a one stop shop for development within the City of Camas. We hope this streamlines your development review, which involves collaboration from many city departments and other agencies. The Community Development Department is comprised of the Building and Planning Divisions. Phil Bourquin has served as the Community Development Director since 2006.
