ORS 274.408¹
Public notice of claim
  • content

Immediately following a declaration made by the State Land Board pursuant to ORS 274.406 (Declaration of state’s claim), the board shall:

(1) Cause reasonable public notice of the declaration to be given to interested parties. The notice shall:

(a) Describe the land or waterway affected and the nature and extent of the state’s claim. Such notice need not describe the land or waterway in legal terms, but by the use of common descriptions or maps shall be designed to identify the land or waterway in a manner intelligible to the layperson and useful in establishing the exact location of the state claim in relation to existing legal descriptions.

(b) Advise that any person aggrieved by the declaration may seek judicial review of the declaration pursuant to ORS 274.412 (Judicial review of declaration of state’s claim).

(2) Send to each owner of record of land described in the declaration a copy of the declaration made with respect to the land and a statement advising such owner that any aggrieved party may seek judicial review of the declaration pursuant to ORS 274.412 (Judicial review of declaration of state’s claim). [1995 c.471 §6]

Notes of Decisions

Where state issued public notice of declara­tion of ownership of Rogue River, but descrip­tion of river was not specific enough to permit ordinary per­son who might be affected by declara­tion to ascertain boundaries of state’s claim in rela­tion to existing properties, state’s claim was insufficient and must be rejected.
