Deschutes County Commissioners are trying to move forward with a plan to allow area farms to rent out their land for weddings. Commissioners have been discussing this controversial issue for years, with strong opinions on either side. Commissioner Alan Unger says they're currently trying to formulate a policy:  “What we are trying to do is to start the conversation. I know there's an impact on neighbors, but these farms need the additional income and we're trying to find a balance.” Some of the criteria the commission is looking at is allowing farm weddings from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m., they must be set one hundred feet back from property lines, and no permanent structures will be allowed.” Public hearings will be held on a final policy in the next couple months.
