  • Create a funded plan to purchase additional land within the Greenway and provide private property owners the option of local conservation easements.

  • Reject the proposed 2-track Willamette River Greenway permitting system, which serves to benefit developers.

  • Establish a minimum 100’ setback in addition to the existing 100’ setback requirement.

  • Incentivize the retention of vital tree canopy.

  • Protect historic public access points within the Greenway.
