The County's Senseless Preamble 

The county planning commission has been wrestling for literally years with a long-overdue update of the county's comprehensive planning document.


The county planning commission has been wrestling for literally years with a long-overdue update of the county's comprehensive planning document.


That's the commission's job, but the last minute addition of an ode to "property rights" preamble was just bizarre, if predictable. There's nothing wrong with acknowledging property rights, even if it smacks of Tea Party paranoia. The decision to include one commissioner's line about the "sanctity" of landowner rights flies in the face of what the comp plan was supposed to be, a document guided by state laws, planning expertise and citizen input. What the heck, as long as we're including frivolous language, why don't we make Deschutes County a U.N. Free Zone, too. Just in case.
