The state Land Conservation and Development Commission will likely hear the appeals in March 2018.
The life of a new comprehensive plan in Oregon is complicated. Even after it is adopted by city leaders, it still must go through several rounds of review, checks and balances before it goes into effect.
Portland’s 2035 Comprehensive Plan was adopted by City Council in June 2016. After that, city planners sent the new plan to the state for acknowledgement. While being considered by the state, community members who participated in the local decision-making process had a period in which they could file an objection to the plan with the Department of Land Conversation and Development (DLCD).
Several objections were filed against the plan earlier this year, but DLCD rejected them all in a recent order. The Multnomah Neighborhood Association and one other individual subsequently filed appeals of that DLCD decision with the Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC).
Multnomah’s appeal cites objections to the mixed-use zoning in Multnomah Village, and the “middle housing” policy adopted with the new plan. In October, the City published draft proposals to implement the new policy through the Residential Infill Project.
The other appeal concerns the zoning designation of a property in the Arnold Creek area.
LCDC to hear the appeals in March
The LCDC will likely consider the appeals at their scheduled March 2018 meeting in Salem. State officials would then prepare a written order implementing the Commission’s decision, which could take several months. The City Council recently delayed the effective date of the adopted plan until May 24, 2018, to allow time for that order to be issued. The LCDC decision may be appealed to the Oregon Court of Appeals.
The 2035 Comprehensive Plan includes new land use policies, land use maps and zoning, and new public facilities plans. A positive ruling from LCDC would solidify the planned May 24 effective date.

Final amendments report to be published by Jan. 5, 2018.
On December 6, Portland City Council worked through a final list of potential amendments to the CC2035 Plan. Those items included increasing the height at RiverPlace, changing the location of the I-84 viewpoint, and encouraging flexible building designs so they can be repurposed in the future. Because Council was able to work through all their amendments to the plan, their tentative January 3, 2018, the deliberation session was cancelled.
Project staff plan to publish the final amendments report by Jan. 5, 2018, in advance of a January 18 hearing on the amendments at 2 p.m.
Community members are invited to talk with staff about the amendments during drop-in hours on Tuesday, January 9, 2018, in the City Hall Atrium from 5 - 7 p.m.
