Land Use Review Approvals and the Economic Downturn


The Bureau of Development Services understands these are hard economic times for both homeowners and developers alike. Land Use ReviewWe are encouraging anyone who has a Land Use Review approval that is about to expire to contact Sterling Bennett, Supervising Planner, at (503) 823-5378. Sterling is eager to work with customers to review their specific situations and provide options where possible.

The Bureaus of Development Services and Planning & Sustainability are working collaboratively to bring a proposal forward to the Planning Commission in March and City Council in April for a Zoning Code Amendment that would provide additional time before a Land Use Review expires to help people get through this economic downturn. In the coming weeks, more information about those hearing dates will be posted on the BDS website as well as the content for the proposal itself.

Please feel free to give Sterling a call with ideas, recommendations or requests for assistance with Land Use Review approvals.
