Some want to make a city out of Oregon's White City; some don't

There are 1 comment on the The News-Review story from Feb 19, 2008, titled Some want to make a city out of Oregon's White City; some don't. In it, The News-Review reports that:

“We've got a police department. We've got a fire department. The only thing we don't have is people saying, 'Don't put a fence up' or 'Don't park your car over there.' ”

White City isn't. Isn't a city, that is. But a proposal could be on the ballot in a few years to make it so. via The News-Review

This effort excludes the west side of hwy62 which gives the county the tax base of the industrial side and leaves the "city" with just the mobile home parks and the little houses to support the expense of city hood. There is no way the postage stamp lots and the little houses can support the establishment of a "city" expense with no industrial base. What the effort hopes to pull off is a re-zoning of the empty lots to provide apartment and condo zoning as a way for the investors to reap some profit from the poor envestments. The whole process must remain in the dark so no public knowledge of the true expense to the home owners comes to light. This is a ripoff of major porportions and should not be allowed
