Review Process

Subdivisions are typically processed as a Type II Land Use application. Once an application is submitted, it is reviewed for completeness purposes within 30 days. Upon a complete application submittal, the applicant is entitled to a decision from the city for a decision of approval, approval with conditions, or denial within 120 days of deeming the application complete, by state law. Type II decisions are rendered by the Community Development Director, with an appeal on the record to the City Commission, and then onto LUBA.
