Veneta Economic Development Strategic Plan
The City of Veneta is currently developing an Economic Opportunity Analysis including an economic development vision and strategy, supported by information from local and regional economic trends and data — including employment figures — and an inventory of buildable employment lands. The projects will help the City create a vision for its future by identifying the City's economic development goals for the next 20 years. The City hired the University of Oregon's Community Planning Workshop (CPW), headed by Bob Parker, to prepare the EOA and an implementation strategy. Work is being reviewed by a committee composed of the City Council, Veneta Planning Commission and community stakeholders. The Committee will develop policy recommendations, strategies, and implementing measures to address land deficits or other issues identified in the EOA. For meeting information and materials, please contact Community Development Director Kay Bork at (541) 935-2191.
The City of Veneta's Cornerstone Drive Bulk Water Station is located on Cornerstone Drive between Highway 126 and Jeans Road. For more information on bulk water, CLICK HERE.
