To All COLA LO Members,
Details can be found in the Oregonian article: Judge Sides with City on Lake Access. The details of this ruling are quite unique and clearly outline the courts logic in terms of the court requiring the state to take action which may impose restrictions on upland property owners. Details can be found in Court Ruling. The judge seems to say that only the legislature can force the State to take further action.
At the same time many in the community are wondering where is the progress on "Sensitive Lands" that was promised by the current administration? It now appears "property rights" will continue to be an issue in Lake Oswego in 2014 and likely well beyond.
