|Oregon Measure 37 Claim Maps by County|
In Oregon, there are more than 7,500 Measure 37 claims filed. In total, these claims cover over 750,000 acres of land and the developer's demands for compensation total around $15 billion of Oregon taxpayer's money.
Most of these claims have been filed on Oregon's most productive farmland as well as in our precious, protected forestland. Check out the story, take a moment to 'digg it' and then view the maps of Measure 37 development claims. They show a breakdown of claims by Oregon region.
|Measure 37 Claim to Build a Mine and Homes in the Newberry Crater National Monument|
In 1992, Congress designated the Newberry Crater a national monument. By definition, a national monument can include private property, but is managed by federal agencies to insure proper protection of the area.
On June 1, 2006, James Miller filed a Measure 37 claim for $203 million in compensation for restrictions on development in the Newberry Crater.
