    Eduardo, I agree, especially with the last paragraph. Regulators and policy makers have the ability to take the political momentum away from these initiatives by taking reasonable steps to be a bit more fair to property owners, especially ones likely to get a lot of play in the evening news. And I agree that most Oregon voters were probably not “pissed” in the sense that they were personally impacted by the regulation. Rather, I think that many Oregon voters thought that land-use regulation in their state had gotten out of hand, in part because of constant news coverage of controversial issues like urban growth boundaries.
