Present Duties

The Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA) was created by
legislation in 1979 and has exclusive jurisdiction to review all governmental land-use decisions, whether legislative or quasi-judicial in nature. LUBA was created to simplify the appeal process, speed resolution of land-use disputes and provide consistent interpretation of state and local land-use laws. The governor appoints the three-member board to serve four-year terms, subject to Senate confirmation. The board members serving on LUBA must be attorneys who are members of the Oregon State Bar.
