Land Use Workshop
Oregon Shores is sponsoring a workshop designed to assist citizens who want to participate effectively in land use planning and other regulatory processes. It takes place on Thursday, Aug. 10, at 5 p.m. at the Lincoln City Community Center (2150 N.E. Oar Pl.). The event is free and open to the public.
Leading the workshop will be Scott Hilgenberg, an attorney with the Crag Law Center, a non-profit that provides legal services to conservation groups. Crag is Oregon Shores’ partner in the Coastal Law Project. Hilgenberg recently joined Crag as a land use legal fellow after serving as staff attorney for Oregon’s Land Use Board of Appeals.
He will provide a primer on how the land use planning system works and how citizens can get engaged, with special emphasis on the aspects of land use law that apply specifically to the coast, such as those governing beaches, dunes, estuaries and coastal shorelands. There will be ample time for questions on topics of interest to audience members.
