Introductory Guide to Land Use Planning
Introductory Guide to Land Use Planning
The purpose of An Introductory Guide to Land Use Planning for Small Cities and Counties in Oregon is to provide basic information regarding the land use planning process in Oregon. It is meant for land use planners and government officials in small cities or counties who are new to land use planning or who rarely process land use applications. The guide offers a step-by-step explanation of the various land use actions that take place in small cities and counties.
 
For those who have been around the land use planning process for some time, this guide may appear oversimplified. However, there should be some tips that will help even the seasoned planner with day-to-day work. The guide includes descriptions of various land use actions, from the simplest building permit signoff to planning commission hearings to comprehensive plan and zoning ordinance amendments.
