In response to Governor Brown’s Climate Executive Order and direction from the Land Conservation and Development Commission, the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) is exploring rulemaking to make communities more climate-friendly and equitable.  At its next, online meeting, LCDC will be discussing several aspects of state climate policy.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, July 24, the LCDC commissioners will review how Oregon’s land use agency is addressing climate concerns, review the evolving Climate Change Adaptation Framework, and consider rulemaking in regard to both the Every Mile Counts transportation plan and the Climate Friendly and Equitable Communities initiative.  Public comment will be accepted on these issues.
