Oregon Statutes - Chapter 271 - Use and Disposition of Public Lands Generally; Easements - Section 271.430 - Lease of space above or below street or highway; effect on prior dedication or grant for public purpose.

Any political subdivision holding the easement or fee title to a street or highway may lease the space above or below that street or highway for private purposes for such period as the governing body determines the space will not be needed for public purposes, and upon other terms and conditions the governing body finds to be in the public interest. Before leasing the space, the governing body shall determine that the use of the space will not unreasonably interfere with the public use and utility use of the street or highway, and shall notify the property owners abutting the space proposed to be leased under this section and give them an opportunity to be heard with respect to the proposed leasing. Lease of space above or below a street or highway for private purposes shall not affect prior dedication or grant of the area for street or highway purposes. [1969 c.586 §2; 1981 c.787 §37]
