1000 Friends of Oregon


1000 Friends of OregonI attended one of the many meetings held across Oregon by the local 1000 Friends of Oregon last year and found it very interesting.  From a recent newsletter I received, the following is a portion of Bob Stacey's article:

At 1000 Friends of Oregon, we've heard a lot about what Oregonians value.  For the past two years, through our Envision Oregon town halls, we've met with thousands of Oregonians and listened as they described what we all value, and what we all want for Oregon's future - safe, healthy neighborhoods for our children, good jobs and economic security for our families, protection of the places and special character that make Oregon the home we all love.

Those are values that Oregon land use planning has advanced for thirty years.  In the thirty years ahead, good land use laws will need to become better as Oregon grows and we face enormous challenges from climate change to international economic competition.
