As part of a mandated process for unincorporated communities, residents at Wallowa Lake are studying the pros and cons of incorporating into a city. Wallowa County Planning Director Bill Oliver says that such communities must meet new state guidelines for unincorporated cities or incorporate.

Meetings on the process for Wallowa Lake have been held Nov. 2 and Nov. 8 and a third meeting is scheduled in the basement of the Wallowa County Courthouse at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 6.
