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 appeals. Because final land use decisions are appealable to LUBA for review, LUBA cannot answer questions or give advice about pending local land use matters. 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.
