The Planning Department is responsible for processing all land use applications within the City of Canby which includes subdivisions, partitions, and site and design review. We also provide development services, zoning reviews, and provide the public with information on all property-related issues within the City limits. City approval is required before Clackamas County can issue a building permit. Please see “Development Review” for a guide to our review process.

In Canby, an innovative new tool called OpenCounter helps businesses get up and running
more quickly and easily. It provides fast, easy and comprehensive information on the Canby
business location process online 24/7.
It asks the right questions, in the right order, so business owners see the requirements, fees, and processing time for
their business and proposed location. Then businesses will receive a customized report based on their specific needs.
