Measure 37 in Utah?

A story in yesterday's Oregonian details how the proponents of Oregon's Measure 37 are in demand, travelling and talking to those in several other states who are pushing for similar measure in their home areas -- see OregonLive.com's Printer-Friendly Page

The story says, "they're the new hope for America's property rights advocates and the inspiration for a nationwide movement to scale back land restrictions.

"if planning rules buckle here, both sides reason, they can be changed anywhere.

"A large coalition is challenging Washington state's Growth Management Act. A Maine supermarket heiress wants to loosen planning rules in her town. Floridians may try to bolster their property rights law with a Measure 37 replica."

Measure 37, if you don't remember, requires state and local governments in Oregon to either allow development on land that was allowable at the time the land was purchased by the current owner, or pay the owners compensation for the difference in land value. It was passed by Oregon voters in the November general election by 61%. See this realtor's website for a good explanation of Measure 37.

"A property rights initiative modeled after Measure 37 is headed for Washington's ballot, probably in 2006. Ditto for North Carolina, South Carolina, Colorado, Napa County, California, and Falmouth Maine. Rumblings are underway in Florida, Michigan and Wisconsin."

So will we see Measure 37 efforts in Utah? So far, I haven't heard any "rumblings," but given the recent fervor for ballot initiatives in Utah, something may be coming soon. Watch the horizon for signs!
