One of the key ways Oregon manages its population growth is land use planning. Creating urban and rural reserves is part of that process, but a recent appeals court ruling deemed the current plan insufficient. This compromise effort was quickly assembled, despite the fact that it’s unusual for state lawmakers to wade into land use planning at this level.

Although some are unhappy, the compromise plan, dubbed by some a “grand bargain” is now moving through the legislature and is widely expected to be given final approval.

What questions do you have about this compromise plan?
