Activists Taking on Oregon Wineries Over Land Use

A local anti-sprawl group—Goal One Coalition—is challenging Oregon wineries in their desire to serve restaurant-style meals at their tasting rooms. Why?  Land use.
Overall, Oregon’s state land use laws have prevented the sprawl common in, say, Southern California.  Agree with them or not, they’ve been in place since 1973.  But—that doesn’t mean they are without problems, and the aforementioned situation is one example.
Allowing folks to have a meal with their wine sounds like a good idea to me.
