Would Washington Benefit from a New Statutory Takings Initiative Given Oregon’s Experience?


James Howsley presented in Seattle on this topic.

Here are the three key points to take away:

1) A cumbersome land use system can lead to initiatives such as Measure 7 and Measure 37.

2) Washinton has not had an experience long enough with it's Growth Management Act and other land use controls for a takings initiative to be successful.

3) However, Washington maintains stricter land use regulations dealing with environmental issues such as stormwater and critical areas, which could accelerate a potential takings initiative.
