Novel Coronavirus Update (COVID-19)

To help slow and prevent the spread of COVID-19, and protect employees and the public, LUBA will be changing the way it provides services at its office in Salem. Offices will remain open and can be reached by phone and email during regular business hours, but in-person interactions between staff and the public will be by appointment only. 

LUBA will move to an appointment-only system for in person filings under OAR 661-010-0025(2)(a) (transmittal of record) and OAR 661-010-0075(2)(a)(B)(i) (filing of documents with the Board), effective Tuesday, March 24, 2020. Appointments must be confirmed with LUBA at least four (4) hours before the requested appointment time. Appointments may be made by emailing LUBASupport@dsl.state.or.us or calling (503)373-1265. LUBA will confirm an appointment is available as soon as practicable. 

Filings by first class mail with the United States Postal Service under OAR 661-010-0075(2)(a)(B)(ii) are not affected by this change.

In addition, until further notice, all oral arguments will be held by telephone conference. Call-in information will be provided to the parties by letter notice. Courtesy email notice will also be provided to parties providing email addresses.
