The department has received a request from Cannon Beach for consideration of a rule amendment that would permit structures to be planned and constructed in forest zones as part of the local community tsunami preparedness planning efforts. That city, and in fact several coastal communities, are considering identifying pedestrian evacuation routes for tsunami emergencies. The communities seek to allow special structures at or near the termination points of identified evacuation routes to store various essential items for displaced households due to a tsunami emergency. Because termination points are sometimes located in forest zones, changes to administrative rules OAR 660, division 6, may be required to permit these structures. DLCD forest land rules allow "locationally dependent uses" but do not describe such uses and this authorization cannot be reasonably interpreted to reference such tsunami evacuation structures.
