John Hillock, left, chairman of the Wallowa County Board of Commissioners, discusses a just-concluded hearing Wednesday, May 3, 2023, with Planning Commission member Kim Tippett. The commissioners held two hearings on Wednesday; one drew relatively little comment, but one got complicated.

ENTERPRISE — A pair of public hearings before the Wallowa County Board of Commissioners on Wednesday, May 3, involved land-use issues, and the commissioners were able to make short work of some of them.

But a conversation about how to define bed-and-breakfasts on farmland quickly expanded to a broader discussion on affordable housing in the county, and the commissioners ended up returning that question to the Planning Commission.
