PRINEVILLE, OR -- With hundreds packed into a town hall at the Crook County Fairgrounds, County Commissioners officially took a stand against a proposal to turn part of the Ochocos into a national recreation area. Residents who spoke up at Thursday night's meeting reiterated concerns the Commissioners have heard for several months.

 

Following the public testimony, the court voted unanimously to write a letter to Oregon's Congressional delegation in opposition to the Oregon Wild proposal.
 
Congressman Greg Walden has said changing the Ochocos' designation would take Congressional approval, and he doesn't see that happening anytime soon.
