Friends of the Creek v. Jackson County

Citation: 30 ELR 20313
No. No. A107771, 995 P.2d 1204/(Or. Ct. App., 10/15/1999)

The court upholds the decision of a land use board that remanded a county's decision to allow a city-run wastewater treatment plant to operate on land zoned for exclusive farm use (EFU). The county approved the use as one that is permitted outright on land zoned for EFU. The court first holds that contrary to the county's finding, state statutes required the proposed use to be permitted. The court then holds that whether or not the proposed use was permissible under state statutes could not be decided without a factual determination made at a hearing on remand.
