At a joint elected official public hearing held in Nyssa, Oregon the Nyssa City Council and the Malheur County Board unanimously approved Winterbrook’s application for the Treasure Valley Reload Center – a $26 million, 210-acre rail-dependent agricultural produce transshipment facility funded by the Oregon Legislature.
Winterbrook has prepared successful growth management studies (housing needs and economic opportunities analyses, buildable lands and natural features inventories, land use efficiency and UGB alternatives evaluations, and UGB amendment findings) for communities across Oregon. We apply in-depth understanding of state and regional planning requirements to achieve local planning objectives.
Winterbrook is leading the Seaside School District’s application to amend the Seaside UGB to accommodate a new K-12 campus above the tsunami inundation zone.
Winterbrook prepared the comprehensive plan map and UGB amendment application for the Unitarian Universalists Church in Bend, Oregon.
Winterbrook led a team of consultants to prepare a new Scappoose Economic Opportunities Analysis. With the support of all participating state agencies, Scappoose was able to capitalize on its unique locational advantages and add about 480 industrial acres to its UGB.
This project included a Buildable Lands Inventory, Economic Opportunities Analysis, updates to the city's Comprehensive Plan, and creation of a new Business Park ordinance. The UGB amendments were approved by City and County governing bodies and affirmed by DLCD.
This multi-year project includes inventories, urbanization studies, and an extensive community and tribal outreach program, and will address the demanding requirements of Oregon's statewide planning program and the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Act.
