“Jody Christensen was instrumental in coordinating the necessary city, county and state programs (and personnel) to attract an out-of-state buyer to the long shuttered Forest Grove Lumber site. [The MEDP team] participated in a number of tours and did a great job being the welcoming face for [McMinnville], Oregon. I am happy to report the site is humming with jobs and activity.”

– Jeffrey R. Brooks, SIOR, Vice President of KIDDER MATHEWS
