Proposed Administrative Rule for Public Trails


Proposed Administrative Rule for Public Trail ExtractionsThe Bureau of Development Services will hold a public meeting on December 16, 2010, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm, to invite public comment on proposed Administrative Rules related to public trails. The meeting will be held at 1900 SW 4th Avenue, Room 2500 B, Portland, Oregon.

The Administrative Rules are in response to the recently adopted River Plan / North Reach legislative project, which included amendments to Zoning Chapter 33.272, Public Trails. The adopted code language clarifies that public trail improvements will be required only when application of the regulations is determined to be logically related and roughly proportional to the impacts of proposed development.

The purpose of the Administrative Rule is to outline the formula that the Bureau of Development Services will use during building permit review to make a determination of rough proportionality. Copies of the proposed rule may be obtained in the BDS Development Services Center, 1900 SW 4th Avenue, Portland, Oregon 97201, or online at
