The Clatsop County Board of Commissioners, pursuant to ORS 197.830(13)(b) and OAR 661-010-0021, withdrew its decision to grant conditional approval to the Oregon Pipelie, LLC, consolidated application to construct a 41-mile natrual gas pipeline that was originally approved by the Board of Commissioners on November 8, 2010. That decision had been appealed to the State of Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA).
On February 9, 2011, the Board of Commissioners held a public hearing and set the scope of review for the reconsideration hearing. The Board has determined it would consider any and all issues identified in the findings adopted in support of the November 8, 2010, Board of Commissioners decision and that no new evidence will be considered as part of its reconsideration of the November 8, 2010 findings and decision.
On March 9, 2011, the Board of Commissioners held a public hearing for the reconsideration of the Oregon Pipeline conditional approval and reached a preliminary decision of denial. The Board of Commissioners was set to review and adopt modified supplemental findings on March 30, 2011; however, that meeting was cancelled due to a stay issued by the Oregon Supreme Court.
On October 24, 2012, the Court of Appeals of the State of Oregon filed its decision regarding an appeal of the Clatsop County Circuit Court decision to deny a writ of mandamus.
On March 28, 2013, the Oregon Supreme Court issued an order denying review of the Oregon Pipeline case.
Once the Oregon Supreme Court issues its judgement and the Land Use Board of Appeals determines the time remaining in the reconsideration process Clatsop County will schedule the matter before the Board of Commissioners for consideration of the modified supplemental findings.
