Community Development Code - CDC
Updated November 2017
When a development application is under review, staff uses requirements and standards from the Community Development Code (CDC) to determine whether or not the application may be approved as proposed and which conditions should be applied upon approval. Code standards are adopted in order to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public by preventing incompatible land uses from being established next to one another.
The standards within the Community Development Code are based on a collection of standards including Oregon State Statutes, Oregon State Administrative Rules, and ordinances adopted by the Washington County Board of Commissioners.
