Present Duties

The Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA) was created by legislation in 1979 to provide a specialized appellate review body that provides an accessible forum for resolving land use disputes quickly and effec­tively. LUBA makes its decisions available as a decision making resource to state and local legislators, land use professionals, city and county land use decision makers, property owners and the citizens of
Oregon. LUBA is generally expected to conduct its review in a manner that is similar to appellate court review. LUBA consists of five full-time equivalent employees, three board members, appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Senate to four-year terms, a staff attorney, a paralegal and an administrative support specialist.
