Goal 9 Policies and Rule Economic Opportunities Analysis

Port of Portland
The Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) adopted amendments to OAR chapter 660, division 9 (Economic Development) on December 1, 2005. The amendments became effective January 1, 2007.

The amendments were part of a broad effort regarding the state's industrial land supply required by House Bill 2011 (2003) and Governor's Executive Order 03-02 on industrial lands. The amendments also respond to recommendations made by the Governor's Industrial Lands Task Force and the Industrial Conversion Study Committee.

The new rules clarify and streamline existing requirements for local governments. In addition, the rule amendments provide guidance in planning for a short-term supply of land, updated definitions, and enable multi-jurisdiction coordination.
