News Release
Land Board to consider land use applications, infrastructure improvements for 945-acre property in Deschutes County   - 08/08/18

SALEM, Ore. – The State Land Board will be asked to approve next steps in the planning process for an approximately 945-acre state-owned property in Deschutes County during the August 14 Land Board meeting. 

The Department of State Lands (DSL) is requesting approval to: 

  • Submit land use planning applications to the City of Redmond and Deschutes County for the property, known as the South Redmond Tract. The applications are to expand the Redmond urban growth boundary, annex the property into the city, and apply the large lot industrial zoning designation.
  • Partition two parcels from the property for a land exchange with Deschutes County and a land sale to the Oregon Military Department.
  • Fund the infrastructure improvements necessary to meet City of Redmond requirements for community development and State of Oregon requirements for large lot industrial zoning.  

During the meeting DSL will also request Land Board approval to add an additional policy option package to the previously approved 2019-21 agency budget request. Additionally, an update on a Request for Information (RFI) for certified forest lands management will be presented. 

The meeting will be held:

Tuesday, August 14 
10 a.m. to noon 
Department of State Lands
Land Board Room
775 Summer St. NE, Salem
