At its November 15-17th meeting in Florence the Land Conservation and Development Commission will discuss amendments to the Goal 5 Rule. Adopted in January 2017, the proposed amendment correct errors in the rule that contradict ORS 197.772, Oregon's owner consent law. As adopted, the rule mistakenly allows property owners who refuse local landmark designation to circumvent the statutory 120-day delay for demolition or modification. The rule also requires a 120-day delay in issuing a permit to alter a listed locally-significant historic resource.

A meeting agenda and the staff report for the Goal 5 Rule amendment can be found on the DLCD Website here: http://www.oregon.gov/LCD/Pages/meetings.aspx


The Construction Project Manager 2 (Historic Projects) position is responsible for historic preservation project management of projects from inception to turn over to the Park, including scoping, cost estimating, design documents, permit processing, bid management support, construction management, consultant contract management and construction inspection and testing; to provide historic preservation architectural support and design for the planning, locating, design, construction and maintenance of Historic state park facilities.

The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability is advancing the Historic Resources Code Project<https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/article/654638> (HRCP), a zoning code initiative that will propose changes to how the City of Portland identifies, designates, and protects significant historic resources. Facilitated by a 2016 Oregon State Supreme Court ruling<http://www.publications.ojd.state.or.us/docs/S063048.pdf> and recent changes to state administrative rules<http://www.oregon.gov/LCD/Pages/Goal5HistoricResourceRulemaking.aspx>, the HRCP seeks to improve Portland's historic resource protection programs and better steward the city's rich cultural and architectural heritage.

Four public roundtables have been scheduled to solicit input on the project's primary focus areas: identification, designation and protection of historic resources. Roundtables are open to the public and all venues are accessible to people with disabilities. For more information and the dates and locations of the four roundtables, visit https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/article/662415.

You can also participate in a survey<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VKLM27V> and provide comment on Portland's historic resource inventory, designation, and protection.

Rural Opportunity Initiative (ROI) - Request for Letters of Intent

Is your rural Oregon community reassessing economic opportunities, building on existing assets, and working with partners to enhance entrepreneurial capacity? ROI is a strategy to unify and strengthen existing business development resources to build rural prosperity through capacity building grants. ROI values entrepreneurship-based economic development, which emphasizes the creation and support of entrepreneurs and small businesses. ROI is not a new layer, and it is not operating in competition with existing initiatives. Because of this, applicants are prioritized based on:

  1.  their ability to demonstrate broad commitment and meaningful support from existing local economic development and small business support organizations, and
  2.  their ability to build the capacity of existing local economic development and small business support organizations, as well as, grow their collective ongoing efforts to strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
A detailed overview of the initiative, funding process, the Letter of Intent form, instructions for submitting responses, FAQ, and supporting resources are on our Rural Opportunity Initiative web page<http://development.oregon4biz.com/acton/ct/14786/s-0199-1711/Bct/q-004c/l-0007:27d1/ct2_0/1?sid=TV2%3AXkrnneii5>. Completed Letter of Intent forms are due by noon on December 1, 2017. Email us<mailto:bizor.roi at oregon.gov> with any inquiries.
