The LRAPA outdoor burning rules in Title 47 of the LRAPA Rules and Regulations were recently revised and updated. Action was not taken on one issue regarding further restrictions on outdoor burning in the Eugene Urban Growth Boundary (UGB), pending further conversations with the Lane County Board of Commissioners and others.
LRAPA staff has drafted a redline-strikeout version with these five alternatives for the purpose of seeking public comments on them. The available redline-strikeout version also includes a few minor housekeeping changes noted in the staff review of the rule revisions adopted by the LRAPA Board on October 12, 2017. A public hearing will be held on February 8, 2018 which would also allow further review by the LRAPA Citizens Advisory Committee at the January 30, 2018 meeting.
There are at least five alternatives for addressing outdoor burning within the Eugene UGB:
Who is affected? Anyone wishing to conduct outdoor burning in Lane County.
