The Baker County Planning Department is here to serve you with property services, technical assistance and information. The Planning Department is responsible for implementing Baker County's Comprehensive Land Use Plan and Zoning Ordinance as well as Oregon Revised Statutes and Administrative Rules when considering proposals to use or develop property.  
  The Baker County Planning Department oversees all unincorporated areas of Baker County not managed by the federal government. Incorporated cities administer different programs, so if you need contact information for any incorporated city, please follow this link to Oregon Blue Book.  
  We encourage anyone considering purchasing, dividing or developing property to call or stop in and discuss your plans and options with us. Our staff will be happy to assist you, and may be able to provide valuable information that could save you time and money in the future. We always strive to provide you with timely, accurate and professional responses.
