1973: Land Use Planning

Land Use Bill

The art of collaboration: working together for conservation

#DYK Oregon’s beautiful farmland and forests were once at risk of being haphazardly paved over? In 1973, Oregon Environmental Council helped pass Oregon’s unparalleled statewide land-use planning laws, Senate Bill 100. It was a remarkable collaboration of bipartisan support to protect Oregon’s vibrant farms and forests and created an institutional structure for statewide planning still in use today. It’s what sparked the organization of our partners at 1000 Friends of Oregon. @1000Oregon #TBT Read more about this transformative policy and the people who helped shape it in a link in our bio! Photo from @_zavib Selected by @sotauch — Every Tuesday and Thursday leading up to our 50th Anniversary Celebration in October, we will be sharing some of our greatest accomplishments to date, all of which were achieved by a group of ordinary #Oregonians working together over the last half-century. They championed landmark legislation that has transformed the health of our communities and helped spark a ripple of change across the nation.
