Abstract or Summary
  • Oregon's agricultural land use goal, (Goal 3), was established to protect farm land. Land designated as Exclusive Farm Use is subject to various use provisions and permit review criteria. Golf courses are permitted in the EFU zone when they will not significantly change, or increase the cost of, accepted farming practices. A questionnaire sent to farmers who farm land within one mile of an existing golf course reveals three significant findings. First, existing golf courses can affect farming practices. Second, the impact on farming practices from future golf course developments can be reduced through the establishment of siting criteria. Third, the statutory requirement that a proposed golf course not significantly change or increase the cost of, accepted farming practices should be more clearly defined because the law does not provide a clear "yardstick" upon which a permit decision can be based.
