it's sickening. and there are no other words for it. Everywhere I go, I wonder was a landowner here for all those years and can do anything he wants with his land? What gets me is why doesn't our government do something about it that would at least partially make it fair-- charge those developers full tax value for the entire time they have owned it. Another possible fair way to do this is offer to buy their property as the law allows at the value it had when the zoning restrictions went in place. Our state government has badly let us down on this and as usually a few people are profitting at the expense of the majority. Oregonians did two things that amazed me in that election. One was this and the other blocking gays from being married. What happened to our state? Who are the people who are in the majority here?
