well i guess i don't understand! if there is a current provision for me to purchase land, petition for development under an older regulation within 6mo, then what is the purpose of this new idea?????? as i understand it, there was no grandfather ability in oregon. and it is true, since there is no money at any level of government to compensate, the net effect is to throw out land use planning. and that is in fact what is currently happening in oregon. this is all about developers getting their hands on property which they can profit from, grandma and grandpa have NOTHING to do with this. check out the articles in the oregonian, it's online for the reading. folks i know in k falls are shaking their heads over this. that county was almost 100% in favor. now, the neighbors are showing up to contest, which they can't, the sale and development of major tracts of adjacent farm land. the real estate market is booming in southern oregon with thousands of folks profiting in CA and coming north. getting 37 passed was a major coo for the real estate and home building market and their well oiled lobbists. my no vote is guaranteed if it comes to that.
