CENTRAL OREGON LANDWATCH v. JEFFERSON COUNTY
Last Friday (9/8/23), the LAND USE BOARD OF APPEALS (LUBA) issued their OPINION AND ORDER regarding the MacPherson zone change request. The matter has been REMANDED.
Jefferson County Community Director Scott Edelman told Ranch Matters what LUBA’s decision means:
“They (LUBA) didn’t uphold or overturn the county’s decision, but determined that stronger findings are necessary, specifically in regard to the goal exceptions.”
In our 1/29/23, UPDATE, we reported that the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners held two public hearings regarding the MacPherson’s family re-zoning application.
On December 14, 2022, the re-zoning application was approved by the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners and they made it official by signing the decision December 28, 2022.
