Crag is excited to welcome Scott Hilgenberg to our legal team.  As our new Land Use Fellow, Scott will help community groups better understand and engage in Oregon’s Statewide Land Use and Planning Goals and the overall land use system.  Scott will be working in partnership with 1000 Friends of Oregon to empower rural, underserved communities to participate in local decision-making that will shape the future of their communities. This new partnership project is supported by a grant from Meyer Memorial Trust.

Scott is no stranger to Crag. In 2011, he worked with us as a summer associate. We are excited to welcome him back five years later as a staff attorney! After graduating law school and volunteering for numerous environmental causes, Scott took a position with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources as an Aquatics Land Manager.  In September 2014, Scott returned to the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals in Salem as its staff attorney. Scott is an active member of the Oregon State Bar and serves on the executive committee for the Real Estate and Land Use Section.
