More than 200 people attended a Klamath County Commissioner’s hearing Tuesday night.
The proposal would nearly double the size of the monument.
Property owner Deb Evans testified in favor of the expansion: “I think there’s misconceptions that private property would somehow be jeopardized – we are still able to do what we want to do with our land.”
Republican Legislative candidate E. Werner Reschke spoke against the proposal: “If they want a monument so bad, let them start with 10 square miles around Pioneer Square in downtown Portland – let them try that.”
29 people spoke in favor of the expansion, while 34 spoke in opposition.
