NotesThis scathing critique of the early efforts of the Oregon Coastal Conservation and Development Commission shows development activities on the Oregon Coast in the early 1970s, and the pressures on planning agencies and the environment at that time. It describes a fragmented government overly represented by development interests struggling to come to grips with complex issues and failing to use appropriate resources. Individual anecdotes are fascinating. This report does have a point of view.
