Street Vacation in Portland

2 Replies

Howdy, has anyone been through the process to completely vacate a street in Portland? I have contacted PBOT and I am following their list of demands to the letter.

I am in the preliminary stages and I am looking for some guidance and perhaps some known pitfalls that I can avoid. Thanks for taking the time to read this. 

OK, I have a few actually. 

1) Do you happen to know of a reliable contact at PWB that can assist us with gaining approval to remove a water service line?

2) If you have been through the street vacation process, what were some of the was in which you were able to speed up the process?

3)Was your bid to vacate the street successful and what was the total cost of that process?
