The Neskowin, Netarts, Oceanside, Cloverdale and Barview CPAC’s will be invited.    There will be a public comment period in August/September before it is presented to the Tillamook Board of Commissioners.    The process will be outlined at the meeting.    We will receive the final draft of this ordinance after the task force’s July 21 meeting and it will be distributed to the membership for the July 30 meeting.   We will also post it to the website as soon as it is received.

At the Pacific City/Woods CPAC meeting on Saturday August 18,  the CPAC membership will have an opportunity to discuss this ordinance and determine their level of support.


Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) Ordinance Status

At the February 25, CPAC Chair Meeting held at the Department of Planning and Development, Butch Parker – Director,  indicated that one of the priorities for his department this year would be to complete the ADU ordinance and will send it on to the Board of Commissioners for approval.   Although no time frame was discussed,  the public would have a chance to provide opinion at the Board of Commissioners meeting.

The Task Force will be holding a meeting sometime in the near future so the final draft can be reviewed by the public and by the CPAC’s.  The Task Force met with sewer and water authorities in South Tillamook County and have done some research with other communities who have adopted this type of ordinance.   The only change to the ordinance is that any ADU would be a ‘conditional use for all building zones in Tillamook County.   This would assure that each application will be reviewed and approved.
