Title: Deschutes County : comprehensive plan
Author: Deschutes County (Or.)
Abstract: Deschutes County’s first comprehensive plan, entitled Comprehensive Plan to 1990, was adopted in June of 1970. In November 1979, the Deschutes County Year 2000 Comprehensive Plan was adopted by the enactment of PL-20 by the Board of County Commissioners. This plan was acknowledged by the Land Conservation and Development Commission in April 1981, and is the current comprehensive plan for the County. In 2000, the comprehensive plan text was codified as Title 23 in the Deschutes County Code. Deschutes County has grown rapidly since 1979 and the comp plan has been revised in piecemeal fashion, as part of Periodic Review to reflect statewide changes in land use regulations and due to changes initiated by policy makers or landowners. Consequently, parts of the document may seem dated. The comprehensive plan text, goals and policies contained in Title 23 are supplemented by the Deschutes County Comprehensive Plan Map and by several companion documents. For example, The Deschutes County Comprehensive Plan Resource Element, also adopted in 1979, contains voluminous data about the people, places and natural resources in Deschutes County. The Resource Element has been amended over time by the addition of separate documents, such as the Geothermal Element (January, 1985), the Deschutes County/City of Bend River Study (April, 1986), and by amendments to the primary document itself. The latter include the County’s inventories and analyses for Goal 5 resources, including surface mining, sensitive birds and mammals, historic and cultural sites, and riparian/wetland areas. For convenience, the Goal 5 inventories are also included in the comp plan. [From the Plan]
