Zielinski then reiterated
the MCFB’s position.
“While MCFB recognizes
the good intentions of the
proponents and can agree
with the values that inspired
the project, our members do
not believe proponents have
taken into consideration the
impacts of commercial agri-
cultural production practices
operated in close proximity to
the proposed 25 fi elds loca-
tion,” Zielinski wrote. “Mar-
ion County has the highest
value of agricultural produc-
tion of any county in Oregon.
This can only be the result
of a concerted effort by state
and local offi cials to protect
farming practices and preserve
the productivity of Marion
County’s farms. MCFB be-
lieves there are other alter-
natives available to 25 fi elds
that would not impede farm
operations and we encourage
proponents to further explore
those alternatives.”
It would appear those ef-
forts have paid off.
“The Marion County
Commissioners have told us
not on their watch, especially
highly productive EFU (Ex-
clusive Farm Use) land,” Ben-
nett said. “The Department
of Agriculture is not in favor,
saying it’s not the right loca-
tion. We all agree it’s a great
thing for kids, but let’s create a
spot where it won’t have such
a big impact on farming.”
Bennett said one issue to
consider is the impact on
smaller roads in the proposed
area if 25 soccer fi elds are built.
“Long term, we need to
think of the amount of in-
frastructure it would take to
support that, and how would
they support that,” Bennett
said. “We’re not against a pro-
gram like this, because kids
need something. But let’s pick
a place that will work. (The
proposal) could really raise
problems with what we do.”
