Are they referring to the correct code?   This is a residential accessory
structure - not commercial.

Subject: [TowerTalk] tower permit for Portland OR

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  k, K7BVT
