Zoning Code Update Packet #132

Contents of Update Packet #132 (effective 5/27/09)

This Code update is the result of Ordinance No. 182810, passed 05/20/09, which extends for a limited period the expiration date for approved land use decisions and related land use actions.

Code Update Packet: 132

Effective Date: May 27, 2009

Contact: Douglas Hardy, 503-823-7816

Amends Chapters: 663, 730

Substantive Changes:

Amends Title 33, Planning and Zoning, Chapters 33.730.050, 33.730.130 and 33.663.110.

Title 33 specifies expiration dates for approved land use decisions, preliminary plan approvals for land divisions, final plat applications, and pre-application conferences. The expiration periods are tied to the issuance of building permits or submittal of subsequent land use review applications. In the current economic climate, many applicants are not pursuing or have delayed submitting applications for building permits and land use reviews. The amendments to Title 33 will extend timelines for land use approvals and related actions for a limited period of time to enable projects to reach completion once the economy recovers.
