Present Duties

The Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) is a small state agency with a broad mission. With about 55 permanent staff, the department is responsible for making Oregon’s statewide land use program work for communities in all parts of the state. DLCD does this through partnerships with cities and counties, state development agencies (Transportation and Business Oregon) and natural resource agencies (Agriculture, Forestry, Water Resources, State Lands, Environmental Quality and Fish and Wildlife) as well as citizens. The department is guided in policy development by the Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) whose members are appointed by the governor. In addition, the Director’s Office provides overall management and policy direction.
