PERMANENT RULES

COLUMBIA RIVER

GORGE COMMISSION

[ Filed May 16, 2005, 1:27 p.m. , effective July 1, 2005 ]


Purpose: The purpose of this rule is to implement the management plan for the Columbia River Gorge national scenic area that the Gorge Commission adopted revisions to on April 27, 2004. The land use ordinance will be effective in any gorge county that does not have an effective land use ordinance implementing the management plan. The substantive standards are identical to the substantive standards in the management plan as revised. The procedural requirements for issuing land use decisions are similar to those contained in the current land use ordinance (Commission Rule 350-80). This rule will replace Commission Rule 350-80 in its entirety; however, Commission Rule 350-80 will not be repealed at this time.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 43.97.015.

Other Authority: ORS 196.150 and 16 U.S.C. 544e(c) and 544f(l).

Adopted under notice filed as WSR 05-02-059 on January 4, 2005.
