I am trying to get a permit to erect a US Tower TX455, 55' tower at my home in 
SW Portland.  The City of Portland Development Services is asking for several 
items to prove that the tower conforms with the "Oregon  Specialty Structural 
Code and/or other city, state, and federal requirements".  I have purchased 
drawings and documentation from US Towers which will hopefully satisfy most of  
the 8 items they have listed.  One item I would like to push back on is the 
requirement to hire an inspection company to verify that the steel and welding 
are correct.  The gentleman I talked to at City of Portland Bureau of 
Development Services said they would expect the the inspection company visit US 
Tower to verify their manufacturing procedures and that their welders are 
qualified.  This seems like overkill to me given that the tower in question is 
an off the shelf item. I would like to hear from anyone that has got a tower 
permit in the city of Portland in the past couple of years. Chuc
