Lincoln County seeks new members to serve on the Lincoln County Planning Commission.

The Planning Commission plays a key role in the administration of land use planning within the unincorporated areas of Lincoln County.  The primary duties of the Commission are to conduct public hearings and help make decisions on local land use applications and permits.  The Commission also reviews and makes recommendations on amendments to the comprehensive plan and land use regulations.

The Planning Commission receives staff support from the Lincoln County Department of Planning and Development which is responsible for the administration of land use planning, building inspection, on-site sewage disposal and related land development regulatory programs in the unincorporated areas of the County.

The County seeks regular members from the north, central, and south regions of the County. Regular members serve four year terms. Members typically meet twice per month from 7-9 p.m. and usually spend an additional 1-3 hours per month studying materials often in preparation for meetings.

“Being on the Lincoln County Planning Commission is a great way to serve Lincoln County. The issues that come before the Planning Commission have a big impact on people and on our environment.”  Lincoln County Director of Planning and Development Onno Husing said. “I urge people to contact us if they are interested. We’ll walk them through how the process works and field questions.”

County residents interested in serving on the Planning Commission may download an application on Lincoln County’s website or pick up an application in the Board of Commissioners Office in Room 108 in the Lincoln County Courthouse, Newport. https://www.co.lincoln.or.us/boc/page/committee-and-board-application
