Contacts with LUBA in person or
via phone, e-mail or US Postal Service are appropriate to obtain general
information about LUBA appeals and learn the status of pending LUBA
Because final land use decisions are appealable to LUBA
for review, LUBA cannot answer questions or give advice about pending local
land use matters. LUBA cannot accept evidence or argument from
non-parties regarding existing LUBA appeals or local land use matters that may
be subject to LUBA review in the future.
If persons have questions about
pending local land use matters, the Oregon State Bar has a program where you
may be able to obtain an initial consultation of up to 30 minutes with a lawyer
for a maximum fee of $35. (Phone 503-684-3763 or toll-free in Oregon at
800-452-7636). Links to the statutes that govern most aspects of LUBA
appeals and LUBA’s administrative rules are provided on LUBA’s website, along
with links to other resources.
