The article presents information on the Oregon state planning program. The state's legislarive fiscal office estimated before the election that Measure 37 would cost the state $18 million to $44 million a year in administrative expenses, and that local governments could be saddled with between $46 million and $300 million a year in compensation claims. Oregon's landmark planning program, which reflected the heartfelt values of the state in the 1970s, was originally aimed at protecting public resources for the many, rather than allowing unfettered use of property by the few. The program used special zoning to protect farms and forests and created urban growth boundaries to limit the speculative value of property on the urban fringe.
