(2) Approval Process.

(a) Proposed amendments to the Envision Eugene Comprehensive Plan shall be reviewed under the Type IV process for site-specific amendments pursuant to EC 9.7400 – 9.7455 or, otherwise, a Type V process pursuant to EC 9.7500 – 9.7560.

(b) A proposed amendment to the Envision Eugene Comprehensive Plan requires approval of both the City of Eugene and Lane County only when the proposed amendment would apply to land located between the Eugene city limits and the Eugene urban growth boundary. Except as provided in subsection (c), below, when an amendment to the Envision Eugene Comprehensive Plan requires approval of both the City of Eugene and Lane County, both jurisdictions shall follow the EC Type IV or Type V process, with a joint hearing held before the Eugene planning commission and the Lane County planning commission and a joint hearing held before the city council and the board of commissioners. Deliberations may be held separately.

(c) If a proposed amendment to the Envision Eugene Comprehensive Plan is being reviewed concurrently with a proposed amendment to the Metro Plan, the Metro Plan amendment process shall be used to consider both proposed amendments instead of the Type IV or V process.
