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.

City Council approved this year's package of annual code maintenance amendments on November 14, 2016. A copy of the signed ordinance is available here. These amendments are set to become effective on December 17, 2016 (unless appealed).
