The decision about the land trade between Bandon Biota/Dunes and Oregon Department of Parks & Recreation has been made and it is a go. Grose Ranch for gorse. Now, lets call our representatives and let them know that these types of land swaps are veiled attempts to hide what is really going on. The state of Oregon is trying to acquire more property from nongovernmental organizations for wetland restoration, so they can use it for tax mitigation. All of these land swaps are used in these billion dollar taxing scheme's for politicians and businesses will have to pay to play. The tax payer will pay whether we play or not....Rob T.

land exchange approved by Oregon parks commission
A complex land exchange, one of the most significant in Oregon State Park history, was approved unanimously Wednesday by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission at a scheduled meeting in Corvallis.
The exchange still depends on another vote by the commission in February, following additional field work by state parks staff and completion of land appraisals, but the Wednesday vote "clearly shows that the commission fully expects complete affirmation of all elements of the exchange,'' said Chris Havel, spokesman for the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
