City of Woodburn UGB Amendment
In 2005, the City of Woodburn submitted to the Department for review a completed periodic review work task for commercial and industrial land along with a proposal to amend its urban growth boundary (UGB).  The Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) approved the work task and UGB amendment in January 2007.
In September 2010, the Oregon Court of Appeals reversed and remanded the Commission’s 2007 decision.  The Court directed the Commission to provide a better explanation of the relationship between Goal 9 (Economic Development) and Goal 14 (Urbanization) when amending a UGB.
The Department prepared a set of revised findings and a revised order for LCDC’s consideration.  At a January 12, 2011 public hearing where it heard from the city and objectors to the city’s action, LCDC approved the city’s UGB proposal.  The agency issued a final order on March 16, 2011.
On May 12, 2011 1000 Friends of Oregon and others filed a petition for judicial review with the Oregon Court of Appeals.  The case is pending.
