Monmouth Comprehensive Plan



The City of Monmouth originally adopted the Comprehensive Plan in December 1978.  In September 1988, the City adopted a Local Review Order, which provided findings and amendments to Comprehensive Plan.  The Local Review Order was intended to address the City’s responsibilities under Oregon’s Periodic Review process.


In October 2001, the City adopted a number of revised sections to the Comprehensive Plan.  These included a Land Use Element, which includes a buildable lands inventory, a Housing Element, and an Economics Element.  An updated Comprehensive Plan Map was also adopted at this time.  The revised sections were intended to update and replace the corresponding sections in the Local Review Order. 


The City adopted an updated Public Facilities section in April 2007.  In January 2008, the City adopted a revised Economics element that conforms to the requirements for an Economic Opportunities Analysis as specified in Oregon Administrative Rules, Chapter 660, Division 9.  The Monmouth Transportation System Plan, adopted in 2009, is part of the Comprehensive Plan and conforms to the requirements of Oregon Administrative Rules, Chapter 660, Division 12.


In 2010, the City adopted updated elements addressing Statewide Planning Goal 6: Air, Land, and Water Resources Quality and Statewide Planning Goal 7: Natural Hazards. 


In 2018, the City adopted a new element addressing Statewide Planning Goal 5: Natural Resources, Scenic and Historic Areas, and Open Spaces.  



The current Monmouth Comprehensive Plan consists of the revised sections adopted in 2001, 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2018 as well as the other pertinent sections from the 1988 Local Review Order and the Transportation System Plan. The Comprehensive Plan goals and policies and sections included here are those sections that were updated beginning in 2001. Copies of the 1988 Local Review Order and Transportation System Plan are available at the Community Development office at City Hall.
