Brief History of this Land Use Review
The City of Portland's Land Use Review process, administered by the Bureau of Development Service (BDS), is designed to provide the public with appropriate notification, information, and opportunities to comment before final land use decisions are rendered.
The Portland Water Bureau applied for this land use review last fall, and completed the application on October 24, 2014. BDS then reviewed and determined the Land Use Review application was complete and scheduled the first of several hearings.
