Dead Stop: LUBA Remands Water Project Back to City



In what is just about the perfect timing ever for opponents, a state board has told the city it must redo portions of its plan to upgrade a surface water project.
Critics of the project are calling it a victory. Meanwhile, a city official said the problems found by the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals “are fixable issues.”
Either way, the board has remanded the plan back to the city and the process of fixing it will require at least one public hearing.
It’s the opening the newly elected councilors and Jim Clinton have been seeking to get the entire surface water improvement project back on the drawing board.
“It does create a certain dead stop where we now have more time to discuss the various alternatives that might be available,” said Victor Chudowsky, who was elected to the council in November and will take office in January.
