The matter before the department is an amendment to the Newberg UGB to accommodate industrial land needs, adopted by the city and Yamhill County. The submittal includes:
· A determination of the population and employment the region is expected to support in 2032
· Analysis, findings, and conclusions regarding how much employment growth the region can accommodate within the existing UGB based on site characteristics
· A determination of the amount of additional land needed to be added to the UGB, and
· Analysis, findings, and conclusions regarding the appropriate locations for a UGB expansion.
The UGB amendment includes 260 acres known as the South Industrial Area. The city and county found that this area will satisfy Newberg’s industrial land needs to 2032. The South Industrial Area is located on the south side of Newberg near Highway 219, Wynooski Road and Wilsonville Road. The city found that the area includes 132 gross buildable acres; 129 buildable acres received a comprehensive plan designation of Industrial (IND), and three buildable acres were designated Public/Quasi-Public (PQ). One buildable acre (seven total acres) of land already in the Newberg UGB was re-designated from Medium Density Residential (MDR) to Industrial (IND).
