2015 ORS 377.763¹
Consolidation of relocation credits

The owner of a relocation credit may combine relocation credits for outdoor advertising signs that have 249 square feet or less of display surface on one side to form a single relocation credit. After the relocation credits are combined, the Department of Transportation shall cancel the smaller relocation credits used to create the combined relocation credit. The first time an owner uses a combined relocation credit, the combined relocation credit is not restricted by the provisions of ORS 377.767 (Relocation of existing outdoor advertising sign) (4). [2009 c.463 §4]

Note: See note under 377.759 (Issuance of relocation credits for removal of outdoor advertising signs from scenic byway).
