Changes to Business Guidelines
Last week, Governor Brown announced some changes to business guidance for counties in the “Extreme Risk” category, which includes Deschutes County. While these are not major changes, some of them may allow you to resume or expand business operations that were closed by prior guidance.

Highlights of these changes include:

For indoor entertainment recreation and fitness establishments:

  • Establishments 500 sq. ft. or larger can now allow a maximum of six people total, not including employees, in shared indoor entertainment spaces.
  • A minimum of six feet of physical distancing between households is still required.
  • Limit to the minimum number of employees needed to operate the establishment.
  • For establishments smaller than 500 sq. ft, the maximum capacity is one customer and one employee total; i.e. allowing for one-on-one personal training.
  • Indoor on-site consumption of food and drink is prohibited.

You can view the full guidance for indoor recreation and fitness establishments here.

For restaurants:

  1. Redefines outdoor space to allow for 50% of any walls or tenting to be open to the outside. Previous rules required 75% of outdoor dining space to be open to the elements.
  2. Allows for individual dining pods (one household max four people)
  3. Allows for video lottery terminals to be used while wearing a mask (and not eating or drinking)

You can find the revised restaurant guidance here.

Floodplain Permit Requirements in Culver

There are portions of the city that are included in the FEMA Floodplain and a development permit is required if your property is located in the flood plain.  In order to ensure the city is following the ordinances, the Notice of Intent application is required for “development” in the city. 

Development is defined as Any man-made change to improved or unimproved real estate, including but not limited to buildings or other structures, mining, dredging, filling, grading, paving, excavation or drilling operations, or storage of equipment or materials.

In most cases, a Floodplain permit will not be required but in order to ensure one is submitted when required, we are asking that the Notice of Intent be completed with any development activity.

Please call Donna at 541-546-6494 with any questions.
