Planning Assistance

Oregon Coastal Management Program (OCMP) staff assist local governments with comprehensive planning and local land use regulations. This side-by-side work with local governments has had many positive outcomes and supports planning decisions that meet the Statewide Land Use Planning Goals as well as other regulatory requirements of the OCMP.

Examples of Planning Assistance

The North and South Coast Regional Representatives, along with other DLCD staff, work closely with coastal governments, state agencies, and the public. A sample of the range of assistance we can provide can be seen from the following list:

  • North Coast Housing Workshop
  • Clatsop County--NFIP Updates
  • Tillamook County NFIP Updates
