The first proposal, put forth by David Bragdon and Carl Hosticka, designates 28,610 acres of urban reserves,
10,169 of which are Foundation farm lands in Washington County.
This proposal was approved by the Council.
We were disappointed to see that Councilors Kathryn Harrington and

which designates about 10,000 more acres of urban reserves across the Metro area.
