About this study
This study includes an inventory of land that is available and suitable for development, and analyses of housing needs and economic opportunities which will be performed concurrently.
The study will include historic residential and employment growth trends; projecting future growth and land needed to accommodate it to the year 2040, and will recommend policy and strategies to address housing needs and economic development.
It should provide a clear understanding of the city’s capacity for development within the city limits and Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) with strategic methods and policies to direct residential growth and realize economic opportunities.
The analyses will fulfill statewide Planning Goals 9 and 10 and the requirements of ORS 197.296 -197.314.
