Preserving Our Community
On April 24, 2014 — Jordon Cove Workforce Camp Approved
On April 24th, 2014 the North Bend Planning Commissioners - without contacting any of the residents of Simpson Heights - approved a 2,100 man workcamp, adjacent to our quiet residential neighborhood. In order to inform our neighbors and any other interested parties, we have posted plans and documents obtained from the North Bend Planning Department, the City of North Bend, and LUBA (Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals.)
May 27, 2014 — Council Meeting — Appeal Denied
Our registered appeal to the city of North Bend, to reopen the discussion on the workcamp was denied. (See The World Link Article)
The North Bend City Council voted unanimously to deny Jan Dilley's appeal. Our next step was an appeal to LUBA (Land Use Board of Appeals.) Please review the documents on the downloads page and form your own opinion, and get involved.
July 7th a Notice of Intent to Appeal was filed with Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (Luba.)
