Land Use Code Amendments

Current Projects

Annual Maintenance of the Land Use Code (City file CA 16-3)

This set of amendments focuses on corrective or legal issues, which, if left unaddressed, pose a challenge in the administration of the land use code. The proposed amendments consist of:
  • Corrective amendments that are intended to fix errors by removing obsolete language, adding language that was inadvertently omitted or correcting code references without changing policy or intent.
  • Legal amendments that respond to changes in state law (such as revisions to Oregon Revised Statutes) to remove conflicts between provisions in the code and state regulations.

Following the July 12, 2016 public hearing, the Planning Commission voted unanimously (6 to 0) to recommend approval of the amendments to the City Council, with one slight wording change. A copy of the Planning Commission meeting materials, including a copy of the draft code language is available here.  The City Council public hearing is scheduled for October 24, 2016. A copy of the draft ordinance is available here
