City of Tillamook Comprehensive Plan
On Oct. 15, 2012, the City Council approved an ordinance establishing a Comprehensive Plan for the City of Tillamook. This plan is effective, Nov. 15, 2012.
This plan is our community’s map to the future. It describes:
- Where we are today,
- Where we want to be tomorrow, and
- How we plan to get there.
As the term “comprehensive” suggests, this plan covers a wide variety of topics, including:
- Citizen involvement and visioning
- Community development
- Natural resources
- Natural hazards
- Public facilities
- Economic development and urban growth
- Land use
“The future” covered by the City Comprehensive Plan is the period from 2010 to 2030. In this plan, certain accommodations for the future, future growth and development, are made. The Comprehensive Plan was adopted as an ordinance by Tillamook’s City Council. It is a law with the same force and effect as other city ordinances.Every city in Oregon has a comprehensive plan. State law requires it. The state sets broad standards for those plans in the form of 19 statewide planning goals and various administrative rules and statutes. All local plans, including this one, are reviewed under those state standards by Oregon’s Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) or the commission’s staff, the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD). Tillamook’s plan, thus, is the product of a state-local partnership. It reflects both local and state interests.
