Douglas County Sites Designated Regionally Significant Industrial Areas


The Back Nine (130 acres), Stearns Lane (200 acres), and Sutherlin Industrial Park (32 acres)–collectively the Central Douglas Regionally Significant Industrial Area–was approved by the State of Oregon’s Economic Recovery Council on September 28.

This deisgnation means that the industrial zoning for each of these sites is protected, the sites can be given preference in allocation of state economic development infrastructure dollars, and that projects have access to expedited state permitting through the “projects of statewide significance” program.

The Central Douglas RSIA was one of the first two ever designated by the state. It helps to demonstrate that Douglas County is home to some of the best I-5 accessible, shovel-ready, large footprint industrial sites on the West Coast.
