Part of: Coastal Zone '87


Oregon has a complex system of federal, state and local government agency planning and permitting in its coastal zone. The policies, standards and permits of these agencies frequently overlap and sometimes are in conflict. Oregon has attempted to resolve these overlaps and conflicts by coordination. Mediation is now being considered as an additional tool for conflict resolution. Ultimately, the legislative directives of each of the agencies must be reviewed against the goals established by LCDC, as well as the comprehensive plans and permitting ordinances of local governments, in order to eliminate unnecessary permit overlap.
