Although there is no formal affiliation, 100 Friends of Port Orford takes its inspiration from 1000 Friends of Oregon, the group that Oregon Governor Tom McCall founded back in 1975 to serve as the watchdog for Oregon’s pioneering land use planning program. Without the forethought of Governor McCall, and decades of citizen defense of Oregon’s land use goals and laws, our coastline would be very, very different today.

100 Friends of Port Orford seeks to provide information on critical local land use issues, with the aim of conserving our region’s unique scenic beauty and liveability. We have the goal. We have the framework to accomplish it. Together, we can.

For more information about Oregon’s land use laws and its goals, see: http://www.oregon.gov/lcd/pages/goals.aspx.
