WC Commissioners announce hearings

ENTERPRISE — The Wallowa County Board of Commissioners will be conducting two hearings, the first at 10 a.m. May 28 and the second at 10 a.m. June 11. Both will be held in the Thornton Conference Room of the Wallowa County Courthouse in Enterprise. These hearings will be for amending the Wallowa County Ordinance Articles 1, 15, 9, 17, and 27 of the Zoning Ordinance Articles. The purpose is to reconcile differences between the Oregon Revised Statutes and Wallowa County Ordinance Articles with a focus on how those Articles affect resource zones. Some proposed changes also include discretionary language reflecting best practices for Oregon land use. Meetings and hearings are open to the public. Those interested in attending are encouraged to do so. For questions, contact the Wallowa County Board of Commissioners office at 541-426-4543, ext. 130.
