Buildable Lands Inventory

The City recently completed a draft  Buildable Lands Inventory (BLI).  

BLI Map ThumbnailThis technical document, and corresponding map,  provides detailed information regarding the amount of buildable lands currently within the City's urban growth boundary. 

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). 

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 inventory should not be construed to mean all properties identified are presently "readily developable", but rather over the next 50 years are likely to become available for development. 

The draft Buildable Lands Inventory (BLI) and draft Resolution 2019-34 will both be presented at public hearings for consideration and adoption on the following dates:

Once approved the Draft BLI map identifying vacant and partially vacant lands will located online within the "Map Center" of this website.
