Land use -- Oregon -- Planning


Seven speakers (Bob Clay, Allen Johnson, Maryhelen Kincaid, Damian Syrnyk, Andree Tremoulet, John VanLandingham, and Greg Winterowd) met on June 2, 2017, at Portland State University, to share their experiences, decisions, and views on meeting Oregon's tenth Statewide Land Use and Planning Goal.

Oregon's Statewide Land Use Planning Program, adopted in 1973 after the passage of Senate Bill 100, contains nineteen goals or guidelines. Goal 10 provides for the housing needs of Oregon citizens by specifying that jurisdictions must plan for and accommodate needed housing types “at price ranges and rent levels which are commensurate with the financial capabilities of Oregon households and allow for flexibility of housing location, type, and density.”

Goal 10 requires each city to inventory its buildable residential lands, project future needs for such lands, and plan and zone enough buildable land to meet those needs. It also prohibits local plans from discriminating against needed housing types.
