Last week, the Board of County Commissioners and Wasco County Planning Staff received notice from the Department of Land Conservation and Development that work tasks 1 and 2, Chapters 1 and 2 of Wasco County 2040, have been approved.

We have created a page on the Wasco County website for you to review approved and pending chapters:

Chapter 3 will start the hearings process in September, and the tentative chapter is also available on the page above for review.

Our next round of updates will also be kicking off in October, as we make amendments and move to adopt several new Chapters.  Based on this year’s road show, staff will also be recommending amendments to Chapter 2 and 3, so please be aware even when a Chapter is adopted it may not be finalized until 2020.
