CITY OF WOODBURN - City of Woodburn logoDo you have any thoughts about housing in Woodburn? Perhaps ideas about what type of housing and how much of it over the next decades?

If so, the city of Woodburn would like to hear from you.

Woodburn is holding an open house on housing from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, at the Woodburn Public Library, 280 Garfield St. The city welcomes written comments about housing needs, at the open house or sent from residents who are unable to attend.

City staff will be on hand to receive the feedback. The city also urges interested residents to peruse the Housing Needs Analysis (HNA) project webpage at


HNA objectives are to:

Guide decisions to ensure future growth is orderly, and efficient;

Ensure adequate land is inside of the UGB to accommodate projected housing growth;

Consider housing policies the city could consider to improve housing availability and affordability;

Update and develop long-range planning policies in a manner that preserves the character of the city and helps achieve a high quality of life.
