The availability and cost of necessary services including state services such as telephone, data, communication and mail services;


Proper zoning and compatibility with local government comprehensive land use plans; and


Applicable directives of the State of Oregon such as the Governor’s Executive Order 94-07, or of the local government pertaining to locating state office facilities.
