Contact with LUBA in person or via phone, email, or US Postal Service are appropriate to obtain general information about LUBA appeals and to learn the status of pending LUBA appeals.
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 existing LUBA appeals or local land use matters that may be subject to LUBA review in the future.
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). Links to the statutes that govern most aspects of LUBA appeals and LUBA's administrative rules are provided on LUBA's website, along with links to other resources.
