Should We Allow More Dwellings in Farm and Forest Zones?

Three counties in southern Oregon received funding to review possible variations in allowed uses and minimum lot sizes in land zoned for farming and forest use. This pilot program is beginning its second and final year. The outcome(s) could have implications for farm and forest zones throughout the state. 

Friends of Polk County, a 1000 Friends affiliate organization, has arranged a panel discussion in the Willamette Valley to review progress to date.
