Oregon’s seminal land use laws strive to protect rural lands and resources and concentrate cities in “urban growth boundaries.” These laws and procedures can be complex―and zoning and land use decisions in your community can quickly affect you and your property. If you are faced with a zoning change, need assistance with a land use application on your property, or are concerned about a development proposal by a neighbor or municipality, it might be in your interest to speak with an attorney before the government takes action.
