Fees

(1) Fees -- each application filed under ORS 390.640, for an alteration on the ocean shore shall be accompanied by a processing fee for the purpose of partial recovery to the department of its administrative costs. The fee shall be determined according to the construction value of the project. The application processing fee shall be:

(a) $400 for projects with a construction value less than $2,500; and

(b) $400 plus three percent of the construction value over $2,500 for projects with a construction value equal to or greater than $2,500.

(2) In determining the construction value of a proposed project, the Department:

(a) May consider the entire project, not just that portion on the ocean shore. Examples of, but not the only, projects where the entire alteration may be considered in establishing construction value include, ocean shore protective structures such as riprap revetments, concrete seawalls, and other hard structures of wood, metal, rock or concrete; dynamic revetments, log, cobble and sand berms and other non-structural forms of ocean shore protection;

(b) May, in its discretion, consider only that portion of a project on the ocean shore. Examples of, but not the only, projects where only that portion of the alteration on the ocean shore may be considered in establishing construction value include, stairways, ramps and other access and viewing facilities, sand removal, beach nourishment, dune grading and vegetation management;

(c) May assess only the base fee to public agencies proposing projects whose primary purpose is to improve public access to the ocean shore, or maintain, repair or replace existing public infrastructure on the ocean shore regardless of construction value;

(d) May waive the application fee for public agency applications proposing projects that would have the primary purpose of enhancing the natural, resource, scenic, recreational and economic values of the ocean shore, or restoring native beach or dune habitat, contributing to the recovery of sensitive species, including state and federally listed threatened and endangered species or otherwise benefitting the native biological values of the ocean shore.

(3) Evidence the Department may consider in establishing the construction value of a project shall include:

(a) Itemized estimates from licensed, bonded, contractors;

(b) Construction values accepted by the county or city for purposes of issuing local permits;

(c) Itemized costs of equipment rental and other such charges if the project is completed by the property owner;

(d) Estimates that reflect unit costs typically associated with the type, quality and standards of construction proposed in the application; and

(e) Other evidence of costs acceptable to the Department if (a), (b), (c), or (d) of this section are not available.

(4) The Department may require an applicant to provide additional information, supporting evidence or seek additional independent bids for a project if the Department believes the project costs represented by the applicant are not reflective of costs typically associated with the type, quality and standards of construction proposed in the application.

(5) Refunds -- if a written request is received to withdraw an application, application fees may be refunded according to the following schedule:

(a) If the application is withdrawn within the first three working days following the date of submittal, the entire application fee shall be refunded;

(b) If the application is withdrawn prior to the close of the 30-day notice posting period described in ORS 390.650(3), one-half of the amount in excess of the $400 basic application fee shall be refunded;

(c) No refund shall be made for an application withdrawn more than 30 days after the date of submittal.

(6) No fee reductions shall be allowed for modifications to an application, made after an application is submitted to the Department, that result in a reduced construction value.

(7) The Department may assess such additional fees as it determines necessary to cover increased construction value resulting from modifications to a proposed project made after the application is submitted to the Department. In assessing such additional fees, the Department shall be governed by the provisions of sections (1) through (4) of this rule.

Factors Evaluated

(1) Each site on the ocean shore presents different conditions and applicants have varying project needs. Evaluations point up the relative significance of the general, scenic, recreational, safety, and other interests of the public. In acting on any application for an ocean shore permit under ORS 390.640, 390.715 or 390.725, the Department shall consider:

(a) Provisions necessary to protect the affected area from any use, activity or practice that is not in keeping with the conservation of natural resources or public recreation;

(b) The public need for healthful, safe, esthetic surroundings and conditions; the natural, scenic, recreational, economic and other resources of the area and the present and prospective need for conservation and development of those resources;

(c) The physical characteristics or the changes in the physical characteristics of the area, and the suitability of the area for particular uses and improvements (This may include bank alignments, topography, shoreline materials and stability, width of the beach, past erosion, storm water levels, sand movement, water currents, adjoining structures, beach access, land uses, etc.);

(d) The land uses, including public recreational use; the improvements in the area; the trends in land uses and improvements; the density of development; and the need for access to particular sites in the area.

(e) The need for recreation and other facilities and enterprises in the future development of the area and the need for access to particular sites in the area.

(2) Public opinion in response to public notice or hearings on an application shall be considered in evaluating each proposed ocean shore project.

(3) Considered together, and in accordance with the intent of the Legislature, the factors listed in sections (1) and (2) of this rule assist in the overall decision for granting, an ocean shore permit, or denying, or modifying the ocean shore permit application when the level of impact is determined to be unacceptable.

Governing the Removal of Sand, Rock, Minerals, and Marine Growth or Other Natural Products of the Ocean Shore

736-020-0035

Natural Product Removal from the Ocean Shore: Exceptions, Compensation

(1) In accordance with ORS 390.725, natural products of the ocean shore, such as agates, small amounts of marine algae, driftwood or souvenirs of the ocean shore, may be taken by any person, for their own, noncommercial use, from the State recreation areas as described by ORS 390.635, without a permit, except that no person shall collect any amount of natural product of the ocean shore where prohibited by state or federal regulation or right of private ownership.

(2) Each natural product removal permit issued by the Department shall specify an amount and/or form of just compensation to be paid by the permittee. At the Department's discretion, just compensation may be comprised of any combination of the following:

(a) A flat fee ;

(b) A flat fee plus reporting requirements as specified by the Department;

(c) A percentage, not to exceed three percent, of the applicant's gross revenues resulting from the sale of the ocean shore product;

(d) A fee rate per measure, such as weight or volume, not to exceed three percent of the applicant's gross revenues resulting from the sale of the ocean shore product;

(e) Administrative costs to the State of processing the application, issuing the permit, and monitoring the project for permit compliance.

(3) At its discretion, the Department may schedule payment of just compensation over the life of the permit to reflect changing market values, variations in the volume of natural product removal and the availability of the natural product being harvested. Failure of the permittee to make any scheduled payment of just compensation shall be cause for the Department to revoke the permit.

(4) Just compensation payments made under section (2) of this rule are subject to ORS 273.105(2). In accordance with this statute, just compensation payments in excess of the Department's administrative costs of reviewing and processing the application, issuing and administering the permit, and monitoring the project, shall be deposited into the Common School Fund as provided by ORS 273.105(2).

Issuance of Permits to Place Pipelines, Cable
Lines or Other Conduits Under the Ocean Shore

736-020-0040

Pipelines or Conduits Under Ocean Shore: Policy, Compensation

(1) Pursuant to ORS 390.610(4), it is the policy of the Department to prohibit the use of the ocean shore as a north-south utility, communication, transshipment or conveyance corridor. This prohibition applies to pipelines, conduits, cables, wires, towers, transmission, relay or booster stations and other continuous or intermittent facilities for moving material or services, or transmitting data, information, energy, or other commodity whether for private or public use or benefit. The Department, in its discretion, may make exceptions to this policy in cases of emergency or when need is demonstrated for the project to occur on and alter the ocean shore. Need is demonstrated when practicable alternatives are not available. Benefit to the citizens of Oregon, as a whole, shall be a primary consideration in any decision by the Department to grant an exception to this policy. Cost shall not be the sole reason that an alternative is determined to be not available. For purposes of this section:

(a) North-south means a geographic orientation along the beach, or in a heading roughly parallel to the ocean, despite localized direction changes, or longitudinally along the beach as opposed to laterally across the beach from surf to land. The intent of the term north-south does not imply an order of travel, transmission or conveyance and is interchangable with south-north for the purposes of this rule.

(b) Available means any one, or combination, of the following:

(A) The technology, expertise, and equipment exist and are available in the market place, to engineer, design and install a comparable facility in an upland site;

(B) The same, a similar, or comparable facility, has been successfully constructed elsewhere in a non-ocean shore environment;

(C) Per unit costs of an alternative are reasonably comparable with the range of per unit costs of similar facilities constructed in comparable environments elsewhere.

(2) Nothing in section (1) of this rule shall prevent the maintenance, repair or replacement of pipelines, cable lines, conduits or other utility corridor facility legally permitted on the ocean shore as of the effective date of this rule.

(3) For the purpose of this rule, streets, roads and highways are not considered utility corridors.

(4) Any applicant seeking an exception to the policy in section (1) of this rule shall be governed by the provisions of OAR 736-020-0001 through 736-020-0032 and OAR 736-020-0040 through 736-020-0120.

(5) Prior to the issuance of any permit under these rules and regulations, the Department shall receive from the prospective permittee, payment of just compensation for the use of the ocean shore. The amount of just compensation shall be at the discretion of the Department. Factors the Department may consider in setting the amount of just compensation may include:

(a) The length and width of the ocean shore occupied by the proposed pipeline, cable or conduit crossing;

(b) Any surface manifestations of the pipeline, cable or conduit crossing on the ocean shore;

(c) Potential impacts to unusual or scenic land forms;

(d) Potential impacts to fish and wildlife and their habitats;

(e) Potential impacts to recreation use or access to the ocean shore or to public recreation facilities adjacent to the ocean shore that may be affected by the pipeline, cable or conduit crossing;

(f) The safety features and practices to be employed by the applicant during construction, through out the life of the facility, and in the event of a break, rupture, exposure or other hazardous circumstance;

(g) Benefits that will accrue to the public from the proposed project such as sewer, gas, or electric service, phone or other communication service, or beach access mitigation;

(h) Benefits that accrue to private individuals, companies, organizations or corporations from the proposed project; and

(i) Administrative costs to the State of processing the application, issuing the permit, and monitoring the project for permit compliance.

(6) In no case shall just compensation be less than the Department's administrative costs as calculated under the fee provisions in OAR 736-020-0004.

(7) Just compensation payments made under section (2) of this rule are subject to ORS 273.105(2). In accordance with this statute, just compensation payments in excess of the Department's administrative costs of reviewing and processing the application, issuing and administering the permit, and monitoring the project, shall be deposited into the Common School Fund as provided by ORS 273.105(2).

Eligibility for Emergency Permit

(1) In accordance with ORS 390.650(6), an emergency permit for a new improvement or alteration may be issued, unless otherwise prohibited by law, to provide immediate and temporary protection where property is in imminent peril of being destroyed or damaged by action of the Pacific Ocean or waters of a bay or river, landslide, or other natural disaster. Said permit may be granted by the Department prior to the Ocean Shore Improvement Permit process required under ORS 390.650(1), (2), (3), (4), and (5).

(2) "Property" shall be defined as an upland building, road, street, highway, sewer or water line, or other infrastructure improvement.

(3) "Imminent Peril" shall be defined as a situation in which property is likely to be severely damaged or destroyed by action of the Pacific Ocean or waters of a bay or river, or by landslide or other natural disaster, and where such damage would be likely to occur prior to the time required for approval of an Ocean Shore Improvement Permit.

Review and Issuance of Emergency Permit

(1) Upon inspection of the site by a Department employee or authorized representative of the Department, an emergency permit may be issued, written or oral, by an employee specifically designated by the Director to issue an Ocean Shore Permit. Any emergency permit granted orally shall be reduced to writing by the Department within 10 days. An emergency permit shall name the property owner of record and the applicant, if other than the property owner, and list required conditions.

(2) In accordance with Statewide Planning Goal #18, Beaches and Dunes, emergency permits for beachfront protective structures may be issued only where development existed on January 1, 1977, or where an exception to this Goal 18 implementation requirement has been approved by the appropriate local jurisdiction.

(3) Prior to issuance of an emergency permit, the Department shall contact the local government to describe the proposed emergency measures and obtain certification that the proposed measures are in compliance with the local comprehensive plan and zoning ordinances. When local government cannot be reached due to the time of day, day of week, or failed communications systems, the Department may issue an emergency permit without local certification of compliance with the local comprehensive plan and zoning ordinances. In such cases, the Department shall advise the permittee that the Department's emergency permit is provisional and may be rescinded if the proposed emergency measures are determined to be not in compliance with the local comprehensive plan and zoning ordinances. The applicant shall be responsible for obtaining any required permits from the local government. The emergency permit issued by the Department shall not be considered valid until all local permits have been obtained.

(4) Prior to issuance of an emergency permit, the Department shall request recommendations from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife on minimizing adverse impacts to wildlife or habitat values, and the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, for information on geologic hazards.

(5) Upon issuance of an emergency permit, the Department shall provide notice to the local government, the Department of Land Conservation and Development, the Division of State Lands, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries.

Terms and Conditions of Permit

(1) Under an emergency permit authorization, material placed on the ocean shore, other than beach sand moved for watercourse alterations, shall be considered temporary and shall be removed within a time specified by the Department, except as specified in section (3) of this rule. At the time of removal, the permittee shall be responsible for restoring to as natural a condition as possible, as determined by the Department, the natural resource, scenic and recreational values of the ocean shore.

(2) The Department may impose conditions on the project size, design, and materials used in order to meet the objectives of the Permit Standards of ORS 390.655 and Beach Construction/Alternation Standards of OAR 736-020-0005 through OAR 736-020-0030.

(3) The permittee shall apply for an ocean shore permit, as specified in ORS 390.650, in order to seek approval to convert the temporary project approved under an emergency permit into a permanent ocean shore alteration. If a permanent permit is not applied for and approved by the Department, then all material placed on the ocean shore shall be removed and the condition of the ocean shore restored, in compliance with the conditions of the emergency permit.

(4) At the Department's discretion, the Department may require a cash bond, or other security acceptable to the Department, to ensure that the permittee complies with the terms of the permit, including removal of material. Failure of the permittee to comply with the terms and conditions of the permit shall authorize the Department, without further notice, to conduct the work necessary to complete the required terms and conditions and deduct any and all costs and expenses for the work.

(5) The Department shall deduct from the cash bond or other security, all legal costs associated with the emergency permit, including, but not limited to, enforcement of permit conditions, and acquisition of funds from the cash bond or other security. The Department shall pursue all available legal or judicial alternatives to recover costs incurred by the public resulting from non-compliance with the terms and conditions of any emergency permit.
