Duration of Time Extension
(1)As provided in OAR 660-046-0350 (Application Submittal Timeline and Requirements)(3)(f)(A), the IBTER must specify when the local government intends to correct the significant infrastructure deficiency. The IBTER must provide a detailed timeline for a complete plan of action that will remedy the significant infrastructure deficiency, which may include phased infrastructure improvements and contingent actions and timelines based on circumstances outside the control of the local government.
(2)If, for reasons beyond the control of the local government, the local government cannot complete an approved remediation plan by the deadline specified in the time extension decision, the local government, prior to the expiration date of a time extension, may prepare an amended remediation plan and submit the plan for department consideration. With the exception of application deadlines specified in OAR 660-046-0350 (Application Submittal Timeline and Requirements)(1), the amended remediation plan must be consistent with the provisions of OAR 660-046-0300 (Purpose of Infrastructure-Based Time Extension Request Process) through OAR 660-046-0370 (Duration of Time Extension). The amended remediation plan must explain why the initial approved plan could not be completed on schedule. Department review of the amended remediation plan is not subject to the completeness review period specified in OAR 660-046-0350 (Application Submittal Timeline and Requirements)(2), nor the required decision timelines in OAR 660-046-0360 (Review Process, Review Criteria and Appeal Process)(4). Otherwise, the review process and criteria for the amended remediation plan must be consistent with the requirements of OAR 660-046-0360 (Review Process, Review Criteria and Appeal Process). Additionally, the department shall evaluate the following considerations in review of any amended remediation plan:
(a)Whether the local government anticipated or reasonably should have anticipated the contingencies causing delay in the initial remediation plan;
(b)Whether additional delay in the enactment of middle housing allowances is warranted; and
(c)Whether the allowance for middle housing in the subject area would provide an opportunity for other parties to construct the necessary infrastructure as needed in association with middle housing development.
(3)Upon the expiration date of a time extension, the local government must either enact development code regulations implementing middle housing or apply the model code, as applicable, per OAR 660-046-0100 (Purpose of Middle Housing in Medium Cities) or OAR 660-046-0200 (Purpose of Middle Housing in Large Cities).
