Welcome to our third Virtual Open House for the Wasco County Land Use and Development Ordinance (LUDO) Update. This open houses focuses on updates to several Environmental Protection Districts, or overlay zones.

To simulate the experience of an in-person event but in an on-demand format, we have prepared a series of videos and other interactive content for you. The whole experience should take, on average, thirty minutes to one hour and will be available from May until August 2021, so you can revisit at any time.

Advance slides using the arrow keys at the bottom of the frame. To hear the accompanying audio for each slide, hit the speaker button in the top right corner. You can use the three-dot button next to the arrow keys to view the slide show in a new window, autoplay, and explore other options.

Learn about the project with a video overview of the LUDO Update. After watching the short video, read about the process, and review the FAQs. You can also send us a question and we will follow up via email, our FAQs and our Ask a Planner events.

This year, we are proposing to update 8 of the 14 Environmental Protection Districts (EPD). One of the most significant changes is to change the name from EPD to Overlay Zone (OZ). We hope this clarifies the purpose of these overlay zones.

There are also several significant updates resulting from Wasco County 2040. We have prepared a one-page summary overview, proposed drafts with a revision cover sheet, and a short video overview. You can then take a quick poll, ask a planner questions, submit comments, and sign up for email notifications about news and events.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about some of the proposed LUDO Updates.
