2023 Temporary Rule Amendments

Effective September 25, 2023, LUBA has temporarily amended its administrative rules. The amendments are responsive to House Bill 3458 (2023) and allow for reversal or remand, in part, under certain circumstances. Below is a link to the amendments, which also contains a statement of need and justification, as required by ORS 183.335(5).

Effective October 11, 2023, LUBA is temporarily amending some of its administrative rules. These amendments apply to proceedings commenced both before and after October 11, 2023. The proposed amendments are necessary to clarify the circumstances in which LUBA will conduct oral argument in person rather than remotely by video conference. Below is a link to our website, which contains a statement of need and justification, as required by ORS 183.335(5), as well as the text of the temporary rule amendments:

Please review these amendments before filing any documents with LUBA.

Oral Argument

Remote oral arguments will be conducted by Zoom video conferencing.

Barring technical difficulties, LUBA will webcast remote oral arguments conducted by video conference and will provide access to archived versions of those arguments on YouTube. In-person oral arguments will be audio recorded and will not be video recorded or webcaset.

Interested parties may request copies of digital video or audio recordings of oral arguments by contacting LUBA Support.

If you need to request a change to the date or time scheduled for oral argument, please contact LUBA by phone or email to inquire about available dates and times in advance of requesting a change.
