I live in Portland and haven't spent much time in Salem. But recently, I have been going down to do research. I have to say that I was very suprised by the character of development there. It doesn't look like there is any more planning there than in small cities outside of Oregon.

No offense to Salem planners: 1) judging from the lead-in (blog) description of Salem politics, it doesn't seem like they have a supportive environment; and 2) the new development in outer NE and SE Portland ain't that much better.

I will be going down for the next couple of weeks, so if anyone wants to point out postive devevelopment examples, it would be fun for me to check them out.

Later, Max
