State Agency Coordination

Each state agency is required to prepare a State Agency Coordination (SAC) Program to assure that its "rules and programs affecting land use" comply with the statewide planning goals, and are compatible with acknowledged city and county comprehensive plans and land use regulations. (See ORS 197.180, OAR 660-030 and OAR 660-031.) SAC agreements are used to document the results of an agency evaluation and the coordination of technical assistance provided by DLCD to assure compliance and compatibility.

SAC agreements are submitted to DLCD for review and approved by the department director. The director has 90 days from the date it is received to provide notice to the agency if the agreement is incomplete. The submitting agency has an additional 90-day period to respond to the director's request for more information. Following the director's approval, a public comment period of at least 30 days is provided to interested parties for comments and objections. The final agreements are submitted to the Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) for certification.

The approved State Agency Coordination Plans are available below.
