Because neighbors here in rural south Salem, Oregon are interested in the plans by Troy and Lori Anderson to build a farm dwelling on 80 acres of their 217 acre property just north of our Spring Lake Estates neighborhood, here are the documents related to their land use application to Marion County.
(1) Below is a PDF file of the application submitted to Marion County by Lori Anderson in March 2020 for a primary farm dwelling on 80 acres north of Spring Lake Estates.
(2) Below is a PDF file of the April 2020 Marion County decision on the application. It was denied because the applicant didn't prove that the required farm income came from the 80 acre property.
(3) Below is a PDF file of the March 2020 Marion County request for comments on the application.
(4) Below is a a PDF file of the second application to Marion County by Lori Anderson in July 2020 for a primary farm dwelling on 80 acres north of Spring Lake Estates. My understanding is that this application has been withdrawn.
I've been coordinating with people in the fire area to rescue horses. I asked Troy if we needed more space would it be possible to bring some of the evacuees up on the hill. I currently have 14 equine refugees on my property! Fortunately we were we did not need to put horses on the hill. I have field water troughs and have hay stored up there in the event that we would find it necessary to put horses there. I find it absolutely unforgivable that you would accuse Troy of lying about rescuing horses. I was very appreciative that he was willing to take evacuees.

LeeAnn, I find it absolutely unforgivable that you would lie about me accusing Troy of lying about rescuing horses. I have never done that. Not in this post, obviously. And not elsewhere. Please get your facts straight before you make unfounded accusations about people.

I wanted to communicate with you directly. I sent you a message and you did not reply. I was told that you had accused him of lying about the rescue horses and I was very upset. Why didn't you reply to my message.

Wood, I never saw your message. My email address is in the right sidebar. That's a great way to contact me.Regardless, you shouldn't believe everything you hear.
I never accused Troy of lying about the rescue horses, so you're wrong about that. All I've accused Troy of is doing what Marion County planning staff said he did: fail to show that he has been raising horses on the property he wants to build a house on. That's why Marion County denied his application.
Troy didn't prove that he has been generating sufficient farm income from the property to meet the land use rules regarding building a home on EFU land.
I accept your apology for wrongly claiming that I accused Troy of lying about the horses. Everybody makes mistakes. Just check your facts next time you accuse someone of lying,
