In the United States, Oregon and California have the longest histories of environmentally progressive land use controls. The focus of this paper is on how Oregon has managed its coastal zone through its implementation of a statewide program that integrates a state and local partnership, which depends on input from local citizens, with a federal law that encourages rational coastal land use and conservation. Our research is heavily based on a literature survey and personal conversations - a dialogue - with numerous long-involved citizens, representatives of non-governmental organizations and state agency personnel.
