MEDFORD COMPREHENSIVE PLAN BUILDABLE LAND INVENTORY

I. INTRODUCTION

This Buildable Land Inventory document consists of three components:

2007 Medford Urban Growth Boundary Buildable Land Inventory (including mapping o of the specific parcels determined to contain buildable land).

2007 Medford Urban Growth Boundary Land Inventory (including mapping of the o parcels by type).

Methodology used to define the land inventory and buildable land inventory o classifications, including assumptions.

In addition to establishing a Buildable Land Inventory, the City of Medford inventoried and mapped by classification all 18,086 acres in the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB). This overall inventory is referred separately as the “Land Inventory”. The inventories are a “snapshot in time”, and can be conducted ever few years or every year if necessary.

Buildable Land Inventory Purposes One purpose of a Buildable Land Inventory is to assist the Planning Commission, City Council, property owners, and citizens in determining whether changes in the General Land Use Plan designation of parcels are justifiable or required based on need.

In addition, the City is required by the Oregon Revised Statutes and Administrative Rules to inventory land inside the UGB to determine whether there is adequate development capacity to accommodate a 20-year need. In the analyses contained in the Housing and Economic Elements of the Medford Comprehensive Plan, the buildable land supply, in terms of availability and suitability for employment land, and suitability alone for residential land, is compared against the determined need (acreage and location) for the various housing and employment types. If the analyses demonstrate that the development capacity of land inside the UGB is inadequate to accommodate the estimated 20-year need, the City must satisfy the deficiency, either by increasing the development capacity of land already inside the City and UGB through amending the General Land Use Plan designations, any other portion of the Comprehensive Plan or land use regulations to include measures to increase residential densities to accommodate housing needs for the next 20 years, or by expanding the UGB, or both.

amount of buildable land in each residential plan designation in order to determine its housing capacity. The housing capacity analysis is contained in the Housing Element of the Medford Comprehensive Plan. For the purpose of the residential inventory, “buildable land” includes: vacant and partially developed land designated for residential use; land that may be used for a mix of residential and employment uses under the existing designation or zoning;

and land that may be used for residential infill or redevelopment. It should be noted that Medford’s commercial land use designation permits both commercial land uses and multiplefamily dwellings in commercial zoning districts. This fact will be taken into consideration when the analyses to determine how much land is required to accommodate housing and economic needs are conducted. Vacant and partially developed land that is not counted is that where residential development is prohibited or restricted by local, state, or federal regulation or by long-term easements for utility facilities.

Employment (Commercial /Industrial) Buildable Land Oregon Revised Statutes and Oregon Administrative Rules require a Comprehensive Plan to include an inventory of vacant and developed land designated for industrial, commercial, and other employment land within the UGB.





The Economic Element of the Medford Comprehensive Plan further studies inventoried vacant and developed industrial, commercial, and other employment land within the UGB.

The City must provide an Economic Opportunities Analysis that compares the demand for industrial, commercial, and other employment land to the existing supply of such land. That analysis provides the site characteristics of vacant and developed parcels within each applicable plan designation and zoning district, including a description of development constraints and infrastructure needs that affect the availability and suitability of the parcels.

The Economic Opportunities Analysis also identifies the total acreage and percentage of sites within each applicable plan designation or zoning district that comprise the “short-term” supply of industrial, commercial, and other employment land within the UGB. If the City adopts policies providing “prime industrial land” pursuant to Oregon Administrative Rules, the vacant or developed prime industrial land will also be inventoried.

4) To inventory the buildable land (vacant, including partially developed, and redevelopable parcels) within the Medford UGB, classifying it according to the above land use designations. Note that there is no buildable land in the Airport and Parks/Schools designation. See the explanation under “Land Inventory Methods”.

III. PREVIOUS BUILDABLE LAND INVENTORIES

Medford’s previous Buildable Land Inventories were adopted in 1993, 1994, and 2006 with the updating of the Housing and Economic Elements of the Comprehensive Plan. The Planning Department periodically published buildable land estimates, with the last occurring in 2001 and 2002. In addition, estimates were also made in 2004 for the Regional Problem Solving program.

The 1994 Housing Element found 3,900 acres of buildable residential land (not including redevelopable sites) in the UGB. The 1994 Housing Element found that there would be a need for 2,140 acres of residential land between 1994 and 2010, or an average of 134 acres per year. The 2007 Buildable Land Inventory found 2,318 acres of residentially designated buildable land, not including redevelopable sites. Between 1994 and 2007, the residential land supply appears to have been reduced by 1,582 acres, an average utilization of 122 acres per year by residential development or conversion to non-residential uses.

The 1993 Economic Element found 1,360 acres of buildable industrial, commercial, and other employment land (not including redevelopable sites) in the UGB. The 2006 Economic Element Update (2004 data) found 1,638 acres of industrial, commercial, and other employment buildable land, including redevelopable sites. The 2007 Buildable Land Inventory found 1,546 acres of industrial, commercial, and other employment buildable land, including redevelopable sites, in the UGB. In addition to subtractions from the inventory over time due to new development and conversion to other uses, these varying inventory totals are likely caused by methodology inconsistencies. The closing of large facilities, primarily lumber mills, also adds land to the inventory.

IV. LAND INVENTORY

Full Land Inventory Table 1, entitled All Land in Medford UGB, indicates Medford’s 2007 full Land Inventory by General Land Use Plan designation. The data used was as of March 2007.

The City’s land inventory process classified all land in the UGB into one of the following

categories:

• Developed

• Vacant

• Partially Developed Residential

• Redevelopable (having redevelopment potential)

• Unbuildable

• Public Right-of-Way

–  –  –

Buildable Land Table 2, entitled Buildable Land Inventory in Medford UGB, indicates Medford’s 2007 Buildable Land Inventory by General Land Use Plan designation.

Buildable land includes the following categories:

• Vacant

• Partially Developed Residential

• Redevelopable (having redevelopment potential) Partially Developed Residential land is inventoried separately due to the need to perform a calculation of what portion of a partially developed residential parcel is vacant. It is not necessary to do the same for industrial and commercial land because partially developed industrial and commercial land is manually determined and able to be placed in the “vacant” category.

February 21, 2008

MEDFORD COMPREHENSIVE PLAN BUILDABLE LAND INVENTORY

Redevelopable Land is made up of developed parcels that have a low improvement value and therefore have the potential to be redeveloped. Redevelopable parcels are determined by assuming that, if the ratio of real market improvement value to land value is less than or equal to.33, the parcel is redevelopable.

The methodology utilized to calculate the vacant, partially developed residential, and redevelopable acreage is explained more fully below under “Land Inventory Methods”.

Mapping The 2007 Buildable Land Inventory is mapped on a series of maps entitled Medford 2007 Buildable Land Inventory. There are three sets of maps, each set based on General Land Use Plan designations: Residential Lands (UR, UM, UH), Commercial Lands (CM, CC, SC), and Industrial Lands (GI, HI). The extent of each of these categories is also shown. The maps also indicate “unbuildable” and “developed” land, and public right-of-way. Each set consists of four maps encompassing the four quadrants of the Medford UGB. The maps are available from the City of Medford Planning Department, 200 South Ivy Street, Medford, OR 97501 or on the City of Medford website www.ci.medford.or.us on the Planning Department webpage.

V. LAND INVENTORY METHODS

Due to the large size of the City and the nearly 30,000 parcels, the City’s land inventory process relies heavily upon the Jackson County Assessor’s electronic data system to classify parcels as developed, vacant, redevelopable, and unbuildable. To aid in tax assessment, the County system classifies parcels using a data field called “property class”. There are hundreds of different property classes. This field is updated based on actions such as approved zone changes and issuance of building permits. The most important property classes are those that classify parcels as “vacant”.

Developed Land In addition to parcels considered fully developed by the Jackson County Assessor’s electronic data system, publicly- or quasi-publicly-owned parcels, including those with the designation of Parks/Schools or Airport, are considered “developed”. Although several of these parcels may not yet be improved with their planned facilities, they are committed to public or quasi-public uses and not available to help meet the City’s future residential, commercial, or industrial land needs.

Secondly, I argue that his theory of spontaneous generation was...»
