The amendments reflected throughout the Tillamook County Land Use Ordinance and listed in the conversion table are the result of the 2015 Tillamook County Code Modernization Project, a Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) technical assistance grant funded project that updated key provisions of the Tillamook County Land Use Ordinance (TCLUO) to conform to current state statutes and administrative rules, update requirements and procedures to be consistent with current practices and to achieve desired outcomes, and to generally improve the structure and content of the Tillamook County Land Use Ordinance.

This web version of the Tillamook County Land Use Ordinance (LUO) is provided for the convenience of the public. The official version is available at the Tillamook County Department of Community Development, 1501-B Third Street, Tillamook, OR 97141. Tillamook County cannot be held responsible for differences between this web version and the official version of the LUO. Zoning Maps are NOT yet available online, please call for zoning information on a specific parcel, then look below for the regulations in that zone. All LUO files are in PDF format.
