Building Inspection & Compliance

The City of Amity contracts with Yamhill County to administer all building permits and inspections. 

A Building Compliance Application (required for all permits except electrical and mechanical) must be completed, along with a Site Plan/Map or scope of work and turned into City Hall for approval. Once approved by the City, the application is then submitted to Yamhill County Building and Development for permitting. The Building Compliance fee is $100. To find out if you need a permit, you may contact Yamhill County Planning at (503) 434-7516 or visit their website at

A System Development Charge (SDC) is a one-time fee imposed on new development  and some types of redevelopment. The fee is intended to recover the costs of existing and planned future improvements to the water, sewer, storm water, transportation, and park systems that provide capacity needed to serve new growth. Oregon law (ORS 223.27-223.314) defines SDCs and specifies how they shall be calculated, applied, and accounted for by local government.

Any SDC charges due must be paid to the City of Amity prior to issuance of building permit.
