Open Spaces and Open Houses? The Tradeoffs in Oregon’s Land Use System

Open Spaces and Open Houses? The Tradeoffs in Oregon’s Land Use System

Published on Jun 11, 2023


Join the City Club of Central Oregon (CCCO) and nationally recognized land use expert Bill Fulton, as he explores what makes Oregon’s land use system unique, and its strengths and weaknesses compared to other systems in the U.S.  At 50 years old, Oregon’s land use system has shaped our landscape, cities, economic development and public policy.

“This forum presents an unique opportunity for our community to learn, reflect and find agreement around issues in our land use system,” said Kim Gammond, Executive Director at the City Club of Central Oregon.

Following Fulton’s presentation, CCCO will host a discussion with him and representatives from the development and conservation community, focusing on what they find successful in this system, what is frustrating, and how it could be improved.
