Land Management




In consideration of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our community members and staff is a priority. During this time we are limiting in person contact and our Customer Service Center will remain closed to the public.

Land Management Division will continue to provide key services, including the review of building, planning and sanitation permits, and we have expanded our information line and email response services.


To reach us, please call staff at the appropriate information line listed below and leave a detailed message. We are checking voicemails throughout the day and will return your call just as quickly as possible.


Building Permit Information:  

Land Use/ Zoning Information: 

On-Site Wastewater Information Line: 541-682-3754

Code Enforcement Information Line: 541-682-3724


Submitting Materials

For paper copies, materials may be mailed to Land Management Division, 3050 N. Delta Highway, Eugene, Oregon 97408. Our lobby will be closed; however, if you prefer to deliver materials (except for checks) in person, we will have drop off boxes available in our front foyer vestibule. Staff will monitor the drop off boxes and pick up materials at least once a day. Please note: checks may not be delivered in the drop off boxes. Alternatively, please contact staff for potential electronic submittal options.

We ask that you please observe social distancing while submitting materials and enter the area one at a time.


Making a Payment

Fee balances can be paid online. Please contact staff for information about online payment. Otherwise, payment can be made by mailing a check payable to Lane County.


Building Permit Application

Typically, applying for a building permit involves a preliminary consultation with the planner-on-duty and builder-on-duty. Once these consultations are completed, an intake meeting is scheduled called the “Building Permit Review Meeting” (BPRM). During this temporary lobby closure, a two-step process will still be required with some modifications. An in-person BPRM meeting will not be scheduled.

Step 1: Please discuss your project with a planner-on-duty and builder-on-duty. Provide a scaled 11x17 site plan for their review. Additional preliminary permit application materials may be provided if you would like feedback.

Step 2: After the planner-on-duty and builder-on-duty consultation and site plan review is completed, you may proceed with submitting your building permit application materials. We will review all materials in our offices and notify you via phone, email, or letter if any additional information or materials are needed after submittal.


Can I still schedule an inspection?

Inspections may be requested. Field work and inspections will continue to occur, but only in instances where reasonably safe distances can be kept between staff and the public, to be determined by the Lane County Building Official.


Land Use Hearings/Appeals

Appeals may temporarily be submitted via email and electronic submittals are encouraged; however, please email the staff planner and copy Amber Bell and Lindsey Eichner  (contact information below) to submit materials and/or to arrange to make payment online. If you are delivering a paper copy, please email the assigned planner and attach to it the appeal routing sheet made available in the drop off area. All appeal submittal requirements and deadlines still apply.

Floodplain Code Modernization Project Deadline:
We will be requesting that the Planning Commission conduct a conference call to open the public hearing and then immediately continue/delay the public hearing that is scheduled on March 24th to May 12th.


Other hearings will be held on an as-needed basis and we are investigating phone conferencing and other options.  Please check with Interim Planning Director Amber Bell and Interim Principal Planner Lindsey Eichner for more information.


Beginning July 1, 2020, Lane County will no longer be administering the Manufactured Home Ownership Document System (MHODS). Instead, manufactured home title transfers and trip permits must be purchased directly through the State of Oregon Manufactured Structures Program. Contact information and links to the state website will be posted here beginning July 1.

We do understand that this change in service may result in some questions. For the next several months, county staff will continue to be available by phone to answer questions and assist residents in navigating the new state system.

Lane County Manufactured Structure services continue to be  available by phone until June 30, 2020.  Please contact us at: 541-682-6961
