Waiver Program Announced For Holiday Farm Fire Rebuilding Efforts

Brian Bull

People rebuilding after the Holiday Farm Fire just got a break. The Lane County Board of Commissioners has approved a fee waiver program for land use, sanitation, and building permits.

The waivers apply to primary and secondary homes, rental properties, and temporary medical hardship buildings. They’ll be available for a five-year period to the owners of such dwellings at the time they were destroyed.

To facilitate the application process, the board also approved six full-time staff to the Land Management Division. The fee waiver program is retroactive, and cost of qualifying permits will be reimbursed to those who’ve already paid.
