Buildable Lands Affected by Goal 5 Measures


If measures to protect significant resource sites inside urban growth boundaries affect the inventory of buildable lands in acknowledged plans required by Goals 9, 10, and 14, a local government outside of the Metro UGB, and Metro inside the Metro UGB, prior to or at the next periodic review, shall:


Amend its urban growth boundary to provide additional buildable lands sufficient to compensate for the loss of buildable lands caused by the application of Goal 5;


Redesignate other land to replace identified land needs under Goals 9, 10, and 14 provided such action does not take the plan out of compliance with other statewide goals; or


Adopt a combination of the actions described in subsections (a) and (b) of this section.


If a local government redesignates land for higher density under subsections (1)(b) or (c) of this rule in order to meet identified housing needs, the local government shall ensure that the redesignated land is in locations appropriate for the housing types, and is zoned at density ranges that are likely to be achieved by the housing market.


Where applicable, the requirements of ORS 197.296 (Factors to establish sufficiency of buildable lands within urban growth boundary) shall supersede the requirements of sections (1) and (2) of this rule.
