Copies of the application and staff report will be available for review seven (7) days prior to the public hearing date at Monroe City Hall during normal business hours.

This will be an open and recorded public hearing prior to the Planning Commission deliberation and recommendation. The Planning Commission is the decision-making body for this type of land use action though it can be appealed to Oregon’s Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA).
