Oregonians are trying to use farmland to generate other sources of money and that can cause a problem with land use planning. In Deschutes County, there are at least a few landowners who want to be able to conduct events such as weddings on land zoned exclusively for farm use: “But what we are doing through the Association of Oregon Counties and Yamhill County specifically is working hard to come up with real guidelines that might regulate some of these events. We have, of course, weddings in Crook County. We have in Lone Pine, a cannon shoot.” Crook County Judge Ken Fahlgren recently met with the Director of the State Department of Land Conservation and Development. Fahlgren says the goal is for local counties to work in conjunction with the State to find some common ground. Some property owners contend that must have that extra source of revenue from events to pay the bills.
