Currently Proposed Rules
The Gorge Commission is adopting a new land use ordinance that incorporates the 2020 revisions to the Management Plan. At this time, the new ordinance will apply only in Klickitat County but could be applied in any county that does not adopt the 2020 revisions to the Management Plan into its land use ordinance. The Gorge Commission expects to hold its rule adoption hearing on December 14, 2021. Below are staff reports, drafts, comments, and rulemaking notices related to adoption of this new land use ordinance.
Some of the numbering in the draft rule published in Oregon differs from the draft rule published in Washington. There are no substantive differences. The Gorge Commission staff will recommend the Commission adopt the Oregon numbering for the final rule.
