The City of Roseburg is accepting applications from individuals interested in serving on the Historic Resource Review Commission and Planning Commission.

The Historic Resource Review Commission meets at 3:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month

The Mayor and Council shall consider the applicants’ qualifications in the fields of archaeology, architectural history, conservation, cultural anthropology, curatorial experience, engineering, folklore, historic architecture, historic landscape architecture, historic preservation planning or history in general, to the extent that professionals meeting those standards are available in the community.

The Planning Commission meets at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of the month. The Planning Commission consists of seven citizens appointed by the City Council. The Commission reviews and takes action on land use and development projects based on the provisions of the City of Roseburg Land Use and Development Regulations (LUDR).

The Commission reviews and acts on Quasi-Judicial applications and on Legislative applications. While some actions are a recommendation forwarded to the City Council for final consideration, other decisions are final unless appealed to the City Council.
