Hearing Item: Response to Oregon Land Conservation and Development

Commission (LCDC) Remand Order 14-ACK-001867 (Public Hearings were held on April 12 and April 19)

Proposal: Approve revised findings that affirm the designation of urban and rural reserves in the Metro region in response to the remand by the Oregon Court of Appeals and the Oregon Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC). The revised findings focus on three primary issues:

  1. Whether the Stafford Area designation as urban reserve is supported by substantial evidence, particularly in light of evidence in the record suggesting that primary transportation facilities currently serving the area will be failing by 2035, and in light of claims made that sewer and water service cannot be efficiently and cost effectively provided to the Stafford Area;
  2. Whether the proposed region-wide urban reserve designations continue to meet the “amount of land” standard; and
  3. Whether the proposed region-wide urban reserve designations continue to meet the “best achieves” standard.
