Abstract
  • The 1988 Oregon Supreme Court decision in 1000 Friends of Oregon v. LCDC (Lane Co.) made it very difficult to allow dwelling units in forest zones. Because of this the Oregon Land Conservation and Development Commission has been prompted to revise the state's forest goal in order to allow forest housing. One proposal has been to add a grandfather clause to the goal which would allow dwelling units on lots too small to use for forestry, such as those under twenty acres. Such a clause could help gain public support for planning, make forest planning regulations more reasonable, avoid a "taking" of property, and pave the way for future "secondary" zone regulations. Several statistical tests are carried out to determine the actual number and extent of development that might take place under such a clause in Benton and Clackamas counties. In both of these counties it is found that less than 20 percent of lots under twenty acres are actually in commercial forest use. Even with allowing these dwelling units the rate of conversion of forest land to urban and suburban uses would be decreased. The amount of forest housing would increase by less than 10 percent. Therefore allowing dwelling units on forest lots under twenty acres appears to be consistent with the goal to conserve forest land.
