Community Feedback

Postcard Mailed to Property Owners – Ballot Measure 56 requirement – In 1998, Oregon voters approved Ballot Measure 56. Under Ballot Measure 56 cities and counties must send a notice to property owners when they “rezone” property. “Rezoning” includes changes to land use regulations that limit or prohibit uses of property that are currently allowed. The City has sent this notice to all property owners inside Springfield’s urban growth boundary as required by law. However, the City has not determined that the amendments will reduce the value of a specific property. The proposed changes may reduce, increase, or have no effect on a specific property’s value, depending upon various factors.
