The Comprehensive Plan is the principal land-use planning ordinance and the City's controlling land-use document. It established the City's legal record of policy on land use and other development and conservation issues. As a land-use planning document, the Comprehensive Plan represents a future, desired vision of Oregon City. Visit the Comprehensive Plan webpage to learn more.

As the official long-range planning guide for land-use development in the city by type, density and location, the Oregon City Comprehensive Plan and Land-Use Map should be reviewed regularly.

Planned Land-Use Types

  • Low Density Residential (LR) - primarily single-family detached homes
  • High Density Residential (MR) - typically high-density, multiple-dwelling residential. Permitted uses include apartments, condominiums, and single-family attached and rowhouse dwellings
  • Commercial (C) - commercial uses service local, city-wide, and regional needs such as retail and service commercial. Typically this classification is associated with newer, suburban development and located along arterial streets.
  • Industrial (I) - uses related to manufacturing, processing and distribution of goods. Employment-based uses are encouraged. Intensive or heavy industrial uses are allowed in certain zones. Zones in the Comprehensive Plan Land-Use Map district are designed to comply with requirements of Title 4 of Metro's Urban Growth Management Functional Plan (1998).
  • Mixed Use Employment (MUE) - employment-intensive uses such as offices, research and development, light manufacturing, and associated commercial uses.
  • Mixed Use Downtown (MUD) - urban density, mixed uses that are conducive to pedestrian and transit uses. This category is intended to be used to implement the Oregon City Downtown Community Plan (1999), the Oregon City Waterfront Master Plan (2002), and Metro's Regional Center concept, particularly in terms of connecting the Downtown with the waterfront. A design overlay is included in this area and is intended to promote development consistent with Oregon City's traditional Downtown form.
  • Public and Quasi-Public (QP) - Publicly owned lands other than city parks, such as schools, cemeteries, and undeveloped lands, open space, government buildings and public utility facilities, such as the sewage treatment plant and water reservoirs.
  • Parks (P) - City Parks
  • Future Urban Holding (FUH) - undesignated, pending development and approval of a "concept plan," a Metro requirement that cities plan land uses in areas being converted from rural to urban uses
