Welcome to the Citizen Self Service Portal

Due to an increase in development activity, we are experiencing high application volumes, resulting in delays in application processing and review. Email notifications will be sent to the contacts listed on the application as the project progresses through our review processes. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience. 

Although City Hall is currently closed, the Planning and Urban Development Department continues to process and review applications.

Planning Board and Historic Preservation Board meetings have been cancelled temporarily, but we will update the Department’s webpage with new meeting dates and related information as soon as possible.

Please keep in mind that in addition to meeting schedules being disrupted at the moment, some of our processes are necessarily altered during this unusual time.  Thank you for your patience!

All site plan, zoning map./text amendments, conditional use, and historic preservation applications can still be applied for through the CSS (Citizen Self Service Portal).

For any questions, comments or concerns, please contact us by e-mail at planning@portlandmaine.gov

The Citizen Self Service Portal will allow you to apply for a Planning or Historic Preservation Application and view information on other projects going on in the city.

 We hope you enjoy this new experience!
