Posted on 05/19/2021

There are three vacant positions on the Lane County Planning Commission and applications to fill those positions are being accepted now.


The open positions include:

  • A representative of the Lane County’s Coastal area
  • A representative who lives within an incorporated city
  • An at-large representative


The Lane County Planning Commission is a nine-member advisory board that makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners regarding land use, comprehensive plan issues and amendments, as well as other regional planning issues. The group generally meets twice per month in the evenings.


“How we implement our comprehensive plan and issues related to land use is how we build our community for ourselves and future generations,” said Lane County Planning Director Amber Bell. “It’s important that the Commission reflect our community both in terms of geography and representation of different voices and experiences.”


Applicants must be residents of Lane County. The Coastal area is defined as west of the eastern boundary of the Mapleton School District.
