Or. Admin. R. 660-014-0010 - Application of the Statewide Planning Goals to Newly Incorporated Cities

(1) Incorporation of a new city within an acknowledged urban growth boundary does not require an exception to Goals 3, 4, 11, or 14. Incorporation of a new city within an acknowledged urban growth boundary must be consistent with relevant provisions of acknowledged city and county plans and land use regulations for the area to be incorporated.
(2) The following are land use decisions which must comply with applicable Statewide Planning Goals or the acknowledged comprehensive plan:
(a) A county order that authorizes an incorporation election pursuant to ORS 221.040;
(b) A resolution adopted by a city approving an incorporation within three miles of its city limits pursuant to ORS 221.031(4);
(c) An order adopted by a local government boundary commission authorizing incorporation of a new city pursuant to ORS 199.461. Incorporation decisions under this section include consolidations that include unincorporated lands.
(3) A city or county decision listed in subsection (2)(a) and (b) of this rule may also require a plan amendment. If the area proposed for incorporation is subject to an acknowledged comprehensive plan, the amendments shall be reviewed through the post acknowledgment plan amendment review process specified in ORS 197.610 to 197.650 and 197.757. If the area proposed for incorporation is not subject to an acknowledged plan, a plan amendment is subject to review upon appeal as a "land use decision" as defined in ORS 197.015(10).
(4) A newly incorporated city must adopt a comprehensive plan and implementing ordinances for all land in its planning area. Cities incorporated after January 1, 1982, shall have their comprehensive plans and land use regulations acknowledged no later than four years after the date of incorporation or as extended in accordance with a compliance schedule adopted by the commission. Comprehensive plans prepared and adopted by newly incorporated cities shall be reviewed through the plan acknowledgment review process set forth in ORS 197.251 and OAR chapter 660, division 3.
