Between 2017 and 2020, the Wasco County Planning Department worked with the public and stakeholders to identify a new 30 year vision for land use planning in Wasco County.  The result of this was the new Comprehensive Plan, Wasco County 2040.

To implement some of the new policies and implementation measures, the next phase of work will be to update the Wasco County Land Use and Development Ordinance.  This process is estimated to take approximately two years, and will involve many opportunities for public participation.
