Oregon Voters Limit Measure 37

Over at PrawfsBlawg, Eduardo Penalver has the details.  A taste:

Under the new law, landowners who can establish that regulation caused their property values to decline will be entitled to some relief, but not the virtually complete liberation from land use regulation that some owners enjoyed under Measure 37.   Owners will be entitled to build one to 10 houses on burdened rural parcels under various scenarios, but typically not more than three.  In effect, the measure tries to strike something of a middle ground, permitting some rural development in order to address horror stories like Dorothy English's inability to build a home for her grandson, but prohibiting new hundred-home subdivisions and commercial and industrial development in rural areas outside of Oregon's urban growth boundaries.
