An aerial view of Amity will show how farmers deal with urban sprawl. The town is compact and tight with the land saved for farming. With Highway 99-W passing down main street Amity was always on the path of those who chose the western route from Eugene to Portland. Now of course almost everyone chooses the freeway and Amity is much less bothered by the world. I understand that the name actually came from the peaceful settlement of a dispute in the early days. Maybe we should have a few more towns named that way!
