ELECTION DAY IN OREGON:
STUNNING VICTORY FOR PROPERTY RIGHTS WITH NATIONAL IMPLICATONS

Alaska Land Rights Coalition
Anchorage, AK
Nov. 5, 2004

PASSED: OREGON MEASURE 37 Governments must pay owners or forgo enforcement, when certain land use restrictions reduce property value

From The Oregonian (Portland): "Oregon voters approved measures Tuesday that will shake the foundations of the state's 30-year-old land-use planning laws...In a state better known for its planning than for its sports teams, approval of a sweeping property rights measure signals a major shift in attitude. Politicians can no longer rely on regulations to mold the type of communities they want -- not without public buy-in or the money to pay off nonbelievers."

It passed with 60 percent of the vote! And this with John Kerry getting 51 percent of Oregonians' votes. Even Democrats have had it with oppressive zoning and planning. It passed by 51 percent in Multnomah County, the epicenter of land use control around Portland (which voted 72 percent for Kerry). It passed EVERY COUNTY in Oregon except Benton (Oregon State University in Corvallis), barely failing there with a 51% no vote.
