Abstract
  • Virgin aggregate resources (crushed stone, rock, sand and gravel) are the literal foundation of America's built environment. Aggregate resources are arguably the most abundant natural resources in the world next to water. However, land use and environmental concerns shadow both existing and future aggregate resource sites, which may create a "cultured" limited resource. Both urban and rural areas depend on aggregate resources for new construction and to maintain existing infrastructure. This dependence, however, is offset by land use competition from agriculture, open space preservation, recreation, and environmental concerns. This paper proposes a guide to facilitate aggregate resource land planning in Oregon's Willamette Valley, by following a Linn County example. The projected demand and use of aggregate resources in the Willamette Valley is explored. A procedure for aggregate resource site planning is suggested, based on Linn County land use laws and the requirements of the Oregon Statewide Planning program. This paper employs a Geographical Information System (GIS) approach to communicate spatial information relevant to the aggregate resource land planning process. The chief objective of this project is to illustrate the use of a GIS as a tool to benefit aggregate industry and government agency planners by outlining the basic processes for aggregate resource land planning.
