About the Commission
Oregon's Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC), assisted by the department, adopts state land-use goals and implements rules, assures local plan compliance with the goals, coordinates state and local planning, and oversees the coastal zone management program.
The seven commissioners are unpaid citizen volunteers appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. Commissioners are appointed to four-year terms and may not serve for more than two full terms. The statute establishing the commission,
ORS 197.030, requires the members be representative of certain regions of the state. At least one member must be or have been an elected city official in Oregon and at least one member must be an elected county official at the time of appointment.
