The state of Oregon implements central planning in its economic development strategy. Although it represents an effective method it also has its weak points. There is a tendency for biased representations of public demands by government officials. This gap could be addressed by opening communication lines between the central and local government and the general public. In addition, a policy for growth management program must be occasionally reviewed relative to general agreement.
