Alaskan Community Considers Property Value Compensation Measure

A measure on the Alaskan ballot this October could require a local government to compensate landowners if new land use regulations hurt property values -- a measure similar to Oregon's controversial Measure 37 that is meeting similar resistance.

"An anti-government measure similar to one that has tied the state of Oregon in knots is on the Matanuska-Susitna Borough election ballot Oct. 2."

"Proposition 1 says that property owners must be compensated if a new land use regulation reduces the fair market value of their property. If the town or borough government can't or doesn't want to pay, the government can waive the new rule."
