During these tough economic times, the Community Development Department has been working with Winterbrook Planning and a dedicated Advisory Committee of local citizens to perform an Economic Opportunities Analysis for Cottage Grove.

The first draft of this document is now available for public review on the City of Cottage Grove’s website.  Click here to view the February 11, 2009  draft report.  As new drafts are created, they will also be uploaded to the City of Cottage Grove’s website.

The 2009 Cottage Grove Economic Opportunities Analysis (EOA) assesses the City’s comparative economic advantages in a regional context, identifies commercial and industrial employment opportunities; describes site requirements for targeted types of employment; and determines whether the existing UGB has enough, and the right kind of, employment sites to meet the City’s economic development objectives.

We will hold an OPEN HOUSE on the project, its findings, and conclusions on March 24. Staff will make a presentation and be available to answer your questions on the project from 5:00pm-7:00pm in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 400 E. Main Street.

If you have any comments on this project, please email City Planner Amanda Ferguson at or call the Community Development Department Office at 942-3340. We would like to incorporate all comments, so please get them to us as soon as possible! The final phase of this project will include public hearings before the Planning Commission and City Council in May/June 2009.
