OAR 813-310-0070
Application for Exemptions from Visitability Requirements


To request an exemption from any rule under chapter 813-310, the applicant must complete an OHCS Exemption Request Form. Exemption Request Forms may be obtained by contacting the OHCS Housing Resources Section. They are also available on the OHCS website at: http://www.hcs.state.or.us/.


In requesting an exemption, an applicant must list the category of each visitability exemption as described in OAR 813-310-0080 (Classifying Exemptions) and must submit a written statement providing thorough justification about why each exemption is needed. An applicant may seek exemption pursuant to more than one exemption category. Consistent with the category of the requested exemption or exemptions, the written statement should include information regarding topographic conditions, community and design standards, construction costs, constraints, sources of funding or other matters as necessary to adequately describe the circumstances relating to the exemption request. If the exemption request is based upon design standards, the written statement shall address whether it would be reasonably possible to obtain from the local government an exemption from the local design standard. In addition, the statement shall indicate whether the applicant is seeking a full or partial exemption.
