Buildable Lands Inventory

The attached Buildable Lands Inventory (BLI)  technical document was approved by the City Council  in November 2011.

The process of conducting a Buildable Lands Inventory is essentially an exercise in quantifying available land suitable for development within the geographic or political boundary (city limits, Urban Growth Boundary, zones) . Under statewide planning goals a land component of a BLI is utilized to assess whether the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) contains enough land to satisfy the community’s 20 year housing and commercial land needs. The City of Ashland maintains the GIS BLI database to assist with long range planning needs. The inventory should not be construed to mean all properties identified are presently "readily developable", but rather over the next 50 years will likely become available for development. 

The 2011 BLI Technical Document provides detailed information regarding the amount of buildable lands currently within the City's urban growth boundary.

The Draft BLI map identifying vacant and partially vacant lands is located online within the "Map Center" of this website or by clicking here: 2011 BLI Map
