The conversation starts with a discussion of the latest news concerning the Salmon Run Golf Course. Here you’ll learn about Salmon Run becoming a municipal amenity.

Next, Connie and Gary explore numerous and varied aspects of the recently completed Portland State University Harbor Annexation study.

Gary describes the findings of the study and puts them in context by explaining some important, but often misunderstood, concepts relating to Harbor annexation. Learn what a “urban growth area” is and why it’s important to the residents of Brookings and Harbor. Find out the relationship between the controversial concepts of annexation and eminent domain. Learn how the residents of Harbor benefit from “subtle subsidies” paid for by the taxpayers of Brookings.

Gary discusses these subjects and more in this comprehensive interview. This is an important program to hear if you’re interested in the future of Brookings, Harbor, or Curry County as a whole.
