The City’s planning, land use, and building functions implement the City Council’s and the community’s goals through objective and consistent application of City development standards and state law.

Planning permits and related land use applications are overseen by the Planning Manager.

Helpful land use process handouts can be found here.

For a high-level overview of Oregon’s land use program and what the City has in place including a Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Code, read our City 101: Land Use & Development.
