In support of the Oregon Dept. of Land Conservation and Development hearings re: proposed New and Amended Administrative Rules establishing a process and criteria for Metro Area Urban and Rural reserves, pursuant to 2007 legislation (SB 1011), the Oregon Dept. of Agriculture completed a land survey and published the Agriculture Land Inventory and Analysis map in March, 2008. As seen below, this map defines all land surrounding metro Portland considered to be of high enough quality to be designated as “Foundation Agriculture Land.”
