Because final land use decisions are appealable to LUBA for review, LUBA cannot answer questions or give advice about pending local land use matters. LUBA cannot accept evidence or argument from non-parties regarding pending local land use matters or pending appeals.
If you have questions about pending local land use matters, the Oregon State Bar has a program through which you may be able to obtain an initial consultation of up to 30 minutes with a lawyer for a maximum fee of $35 (503-684-3763 or toll-free in Oregon at 800-452-7636). LUBA's website contains links to the rules and statutes that govern most aspects of local land use matters and appeals, as well as LUBA's headnotes, final opinions, and published orders.
