Land Use Planning

 Lone Ranch Beach area north of Brookings.


The Planning Division is responsible for comprehensive land-use planning through the continuing development of the Curry County Comprehensive Plan as mandated by Oregon Law.  The Comprehensive plan sets forth the general, long range land-use policies established by Curry County.  This plan is implemented by regulating ordinances such as the Curry County Zoning and Land Division Ordinances.  The plan and implementing ordinances must be adopted by the Curry County Board of Commissioners and be consistent with the Oregon Statewide Planning Goals and applicable Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS)/Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR).  The Planning Division also administers ordinances relating to flood/natural hazard damage prevention and rural address and road naming system management.  In addition, all development permit applications are reviewed by the Planning Division and coordinated with other applicable regulating agencies to insure compliance with applicable land-use regulatory ordinances.
