HEARING FROM BOTH SIDES
Last night (12/7/22), the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners held their first of two public hearings at the Crooked River Ranch (CRR) Chapel regarding the MacPherson’s family re- zoning application.
The meeting was well attended and the Board of County Commissioners gave everyone that wanted to speak an opportunity to voice their opinions, concerns and ask questions. Public input was clearly opposed to the MacPherson’s proposal that included attorney Carol Macbeth, with Central Oregon Landwatch providing her legal perspective.
Initially the Commissioners heard testimony from the applicant’s attorney, Adam Smith. His testimony offered nothing really new for those following the process,
but it was important for the Commissioners to hear directly from the applicant and listen to public input.
