Welcome to the City of Camas Building Division.

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 purpose of the Building Division is to promote the general health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of Camas.  We are committed in assisting developers and builders in creating homes and businesses that provides a safe and liveable environment. We ensure that state and local codes are followed in order to enhance the quality of life and preserve the natural environment for current and future generations.

Friendly customer service is our goal here at the Camas Building Division. We pride ourselves on being a One Stop Shop where you can get all of your construction related questions answered.  Our service begins with the initial submittal process to building permits and fee schedules, from water meters and storm sewers to small projects and multi-story commercial developments; we strive on providing you with concise accurate information.

The Building Division ensures that all new construction conforms to the International Building Code and to the Uniform Plumbing Code as adopted by the State of Washington. City staff works together with architects, engineers, and contractors to assure that a project is successful and well built.

Our staff works closely with other departments regarding addressing, utilities, land use, and safety concerns.
