- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Developers cite job growth and other benefits that big box stores will bring to a community. What is lacking full information about the potential adverse impacts -- loss of local small businesses, job loss, increased burden on local government services, etc. that big box development may cause.
The Oregon Informed Gorwth Act, sponsored by Rep. Ben Cannon, would require that economic and environmental impact analyses be conducted prior to the siting of big box developments greater in size than 75,000 square feet. The Act will ensure that more complete information is available about the impact that proposed big box development will have on local communities and help local leaders make better development decisions.
