(1) A decision to not adopt a legislative amendment or a new land use regulation is
not appealable unless the amendment is necessary to address the requirements of a
new or amended goal, rule or statute.
(2) Notwithstanding the requirements of ORS 197.830 (2) that a person have appeared before the local government orally or in writing to seek
review of a land use decision, the Director of the Department of Land Conservation
and Development or any other person may appeal the decision to the Land Use Board
of Appeals if:
(a) The local government failed to submit all of the materials described in ORS 197.610 (3) or, if applicable, ORS 197.610 (6), and the failure to submit the materials prejudiced substantial rights of the Department
of Land Conservation and Development or the person;
(b) Except as provided in subsection (3) of this section, the local government submitted
the materials described in ORS 197.610 (3) or, if applicable, ORS 197.610 (6), after the deadline specified in ORS 197.610 (1) or (6) or rules of the Land Conservation and Development Commission, whichever is applicable;
(c) The decision differs from the proposed changes submitted under ORS 197.610 to such an extent that the materials submitted under ORS 197.610 do not reasonably describe the decision.
(3) Subsection (2)(b) of this section does not authorize an appeal if the local government
cures an untimely submission of materials as provided in this subsection. A local government may cure the untimely submission of materials by either:
(a) Postponing the date for the final evidentiary hearing by the greater of 10 days
or the number of days by which the submission was late; or
(b) Holding the evidentiary record open for an additional period of time equal to
10 days or the number of days by which the submission was late, whichever is greater.
Additionally, the local government shall provide notice of the postponement or record
extension to the Department of Land Conservation and Development.
