Pilot Urban Growth Boundary Expansion Process for Affordable Housing

Summary

This rulemaking implements HB 4079 (Chapter 52, Oregon Laws 2016), which directs the Land Conservation and Development Commission to establish a pilot Urban Growth Boundary expansion process for development of land dedicated to affordable housing. The law directs LCDC to adopt rules for selecting pilot projects and other rules related to the pilot program, as well as requires a local government to protect a pilot project site for continued use as affordable housing for 50 years. The law limits the pilot program to two cities, one up to 25,000 in population and on with a population of over 25,000, and specifies that certain local governments are not eligible to participate.
