For the Deumling Family, Land Use Is a Way of Life

Sun, 12/16/2018 - 9:00am

As an Oregonian, I am so grateful for this time of year, when we wrap ourselves in scarves and sweaters, and gather around the hearth with loved ones. With the last leaves fallen, and the first snows laying thick across the Cascades, I am reminded once again of the incredible beauty and bounty of our beloved state, and especially of the connections between Oregon's forests and families like yours and mine.

It’s been in the news, and it’s been on our minds: Metro is considering expanding the urban growth boundary for four cities in the region. Beaverton, Hillsboro, King City, and Wilsonville have submitted proposals to expand their urban growth boundaries for added housing. This week, the Metro Council will give directions to these cities on how to improve their expansion proposals to meet the needs of all residents. Metro will make a final decision in December.
