    It is the goal of the Planning Office to serve the people of Josephine County in a courteous, knowledgeable and helpful manner. We strive to improve our service and respond in a prompt and timely fashion. As part of this effort, we post agendas and minutes of the Rural Planning Commission hearings and workshops, any other meeting notices, and items of interest on this page. We hope this information is useful to you and the community.

    CURRENT PLANNING: Processing of development requests through the different applications requirements. May involve preparing a staff report, presenting it at a public hearing, preparing findings, processing appeals, administering flood hazard and water quality requirements, and any request for a land development or division.

    ADVANCED PLANNING: Conduct the Periodic Review required by the State of Oregon. Maintain and update the Comprehensive Plan including the Rural Land Development Code, Urban land use and land division ordinances, the Goals & Policies document, and the Database to comply with all state and federal laws and rules. Other special projects requested by the Board of County Commissioners.
