LEBANON - A plan to build a few retirement homes south of Lebanon has been stalled for a decade but now an important decision is moving the project forward. The Linn County Board of Commissioners has ruled that the 15 acres south of town is not valuable farm or forest land. According to the Albany Democrat-Herald, Bob Morris, 59, and his two brothers-in-law bought the land to build their retirement homes. Morris said he never thought it would take this long - and $50,000 in legal and consulting fees - to get a decision. Linn County Commissioner Roger Nyquist said the case shows that Oregon's land use process is broken. "It has taken 10 years, and I don't have any idea how it has come to this. Is it really OK that government can tell someone they can't add dwellings for family members on property that won't even grow weeds?" The 15 acres in question is surrounded by homes. There are 27 homes within a quarter-mile of the property and 11 properties directly adjacent to it. "I never dreamed it would take this long," Morris said. Over the last decade, in hearings before the Linn County Planning Commission and the state's Land Use Board of Appeals, the family's effo ...
