Oregon board postpones decision about Port Westward farmland

Oregon board postpones decision about Port Westward farmland

{{featured_button_text}}

It will be at least two more weeks before the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals decides whether to approve a proposal to designate 837 acres of farmland along the Columbia River north of Clatskanie for industrial development.

On Nov. 1, the board of appeals heard arguments in the case — the second one to go before the board about this parcel of land in the Port Westward area— and had scheduled to issue a ruling Thursday. However, a spokeswoman said board members wanted more time to make a decision and may do so at their next meeting Dec. 13.

The proposal has drawn opposition from neighboring property owners and environmental groups. The land is owned by the Port of St. Helens, which wants to develop it to create jobs.
