2017 ORS 195.139¹
Legislative findings

The Legislative Assembly finds that:

(1) Long-range planning for population and employment growth by local governments can offer greater certainty for:

(a) The agricultural and forest industries, by offering long-term protection of large blocks of land with the characteristics necessary to maintain their viability; and

(b) Commerce, other industries, other private landowners and providers of public services, by determining the more and less likely locations of future expansion of urban growth boundaries and urban development.

(2) State planning laws must support and facilitate long-range planning to provide this greater certainty. [2007 c.723 §2]

Notes of Decisions

When undertaking “considera­tion of factors,” Metro or county must apply and evaluate each factor, weigh and balance each factor while understanding factors are not independent approval criteria and meaningfully explain reasoning for land designa­tion. Barkers Five, LLC v. LCDC, 261 Or App 259, 323 P3d 368 (2014)
