Temporary Rules in Response to 2020 Wildfires:

The Oregon  Land Conservation and Development Commission adopted temporary rules amending seven divisions of Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) chapter 660. The amendments are intended to assist communities with ongoing efforts to accommodate shelter and interim housing needs for individuals who have lost their homes or are otherwise displaced due to the effect of catastrophic wildfires on Oregon’s built environment. These rules allow for additional, temporary housing outside urban areas for a period 36 months. A county may grant two additional 12-months extensions upon demonstration that the use remains necessary. Lane County staff are working on application forms that contain these temporary provisions.

Wetland & Riparian Inventories/Natural Resources Study for Springfield UGB Expansion Areas:
Lane County is working with our Springfield partners to consider options for protecting the wetlands and riparian corridors in the areas where Springfield’s Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) expanded. This expansion was acknowledged by the State in 2019, and these areas are now in Springfield’s land use planning jurisdiction. An update to the Springfield Natural Resources Study will complete the project. This Study will reflect the Board of County Commissioners’ and Springfield City Council’s preferred approach to managing these water-based resources based on various possible levels of protection. You can learn more about the project on the City’s website.
