(1) The Legislative Assembly, considering the recommendations of the Land Conservation and Development Commission, finds that the management plan adopted pursuant to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Act achieves on balance the purposes of the statewide planning goals adopted pursuant to ORS 197.230 (Considerations).

(2) Land use decisions subject to review under ORS 197.835 (Scope of review) for compliance with the goals for those portions of Multnomah, Hood River and Wasco Counties within the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, except land within urban area boundaries, are exempt from the requirements of ORS 197.610 (Submission of proposed comprehensive plan or land use regulation changes to Department of Land Conservation and Development) to 197.625 (Acknowledgment of comprehensive plan or land use regulation changes). This exemption becomes effective in a county when that county or the Columbia River Gorge Commission adopts and implements ordinances that are approved pursuant to sections 7(b) and 8(h) to 8(k) of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Act, P.L. 99-663.

(3) The Director of the Department of Land Conservation and Development may petition the Land Conservation and Development Commission to decertify the management plan at any time. If the Land Conservation and Development Commission receives a petition from the director, the Land Conservation and Development Commission shall decertify the management plan within 120 days, if it determines that any part of the management plan does not achieve on balance the purposes of the statewide planning goals adopted pursuant to ORS 197.230 (Considerations).
