Help Protect Farmland!

The Urban & Rural debate continues at Metro today with another hearing to discuss the counties most recent proposals. While there are small changes I would like to see Multnomah & Clackamas Counties make, their proposals are shining examples of farmland protection and compact urban form compared to what Washington County is working on. If you care about protecting farmland in the Portland area, then read the letters below and email your own comments to the Metro Councilors.

Farmland is an extraordinary resource – do we want to farm it or pave it? Please make your voice heard!
