When Oregon's land use planning program became the subject of a statewide initiative in 1981-82, Governor Atiyeh responded to requests for an impartial evaluation by appointing a special Task Force on land use, which reported to the Governor in September, 1983. The Governor's Task Force, charged to focus on the program's impact on economic development, found a need for a better balance between protection and use of the state's natural resources. This information report summarizes 1983 legislation ("Law") and compares it with recommendations of the Task Force.
