I pasted in the short form of OAR 660-015-0000(10) at the top of the
needed housing comparison file that I sent.
The OAR text is at http://www.oregon.gov/LCD/docs/goals/goal10.pdf and
a related document from the Dept of Land Conservation and Development
is at http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/rules/OARS_600/OAR_660/660_008.html
Paul- Thanks for noting the spot I missed in my comparison; I've
changed that on my copy.

Thanks for doing this.
Page 6, under the "General" criteria for tentative partition, you
should also mark in red compliance with (l) applicable adopted plan
policies ...This is a BIGGIE in our 'hood.
Can you also post (or provide a link to) the State statute(s) that
define needed housing?
