6. ENDS STATE’S LAND USE PLANNING POWERS, RETAINS LOCAL PLANNING
QUESTION - Shall the state’s land use authority end, goals be advisory only, and county and city land use planning continue?

PURPOSE - Measure removes the requirement that local plans conform to state-wide planning goals. It retains the requirement that each city and county establish and maintain a master land use plan. Abolishes Department of Land Conservation and Development, Land Conservation and Development Commission and Land Use Board of Appeals. Appeals of local land use decisions transferred to circuit courts. Directs formation of committee to advise on state wide goals, and to draft legislation consistent with measure. ESTIMATE OF FINANCIAL EFFECT - The impact of the passage of this measure is based on existing laws and appropriation levels in effect on August 4, 1982.
Passage of this measure will reduce General Fund expenditures for the 1981-1983 biennium by approximately $800,000. General Fund expenditures in the 1983-1985 biennium will be increased by an estimated $250,000 for the statewide advisory committee.
