Oregon Psilocybin Services - Local Government Information

Land Use Compatibility Statements (LUCS)

ORS 475A requires applicants for manufacturer and service center licenses to request a land use compatibility statement (LUCS) from the city or county where the proposed business is located. The LUCS must be completed as a condition of licensure, and it must show that the location's zoning is consistent with the proposed use. 

For convenience, OPS published a standard LUCS form in September 2022 to be downloaded and used by applicants. After receiving feedback from local government partners, OPS has revised the instructions to this form for clarity and to promote efficient processing of LUCS applications. The most recent version of this form and instructions were published on this webpage on May 15, 2023. The revised LUCS form and the prior LUCS form may be used interchangeably. Please reference the revised instructions when completing the form.

Opt-Out Ordinances 

Local governments may adopt ordinances that prohibit service centers and manufacturers from operating within their local jurisdictions. Ordinances must be approved by voters at the next statewide general election. When a local government adopts an ordinance, they are required to provide a copy of the adopted ordinance to Oregon Psilocybin Services under ORS 475A.538. Ordinances can be sent to the OPS general email address:

When Oregon Psilocybin Services Section receives notice of local ordinance, we will cease issuing licenses within that jurisdiction. If the ordinance is not approved by voters in the next statewide general election, OHA will then begin licensing those psilocybin businesses that meet the criteria established in statute and rule on the first business day of the January immediately following the date of the next statewide general election.

Ordinances that have been adopted by local governments may be found on the Oregon Secretary of State Local Measures Search website. Use the following search terms to locate local measures related to psilocybin: "2022" for Year, "2022 General Election" for Election, and "Psilocybin" for Ballot Title Caption. The Oregon Secretary of State may not have the most updated information. We encourage you to contact your local city or county for the most updated information on ordinances.

Below is a local ordinance spreadsheet compiled by OPS. The data regarding local psilocybin ordinances is based on local government reporting per ORS 475A.718 (3) and information gathered from the Oregon Secretary of State. This spreadsheet is updated regularly but may not be comprehensive. Please reach out to local governments directly to confirm ordinance information.
