Abstract or Summary
  • This study traces the development history of the city of Corvallis, Oregon. Historic reconstruction methods and GIS analysis are used to define and describe spatial aspects of the city's expansion through time. Pre-settlement and early settlement landscape conditions are considered. The city's history is divided into three time periods, 1845-1900, 1900-1950 and 1950-present. Variables contributing to timing and location of development such as environmental constraints, economy, major mode of transportation and land use policy implementation are identified for each interval. With the overall growth pattern established, the development form of the city is compared against three models of urban growth. Aside from physical site characteristics, historic reconstruction for Corvallis suggests three predominant factors contributing to the city's growth pattern, 1) changes in laws relating to land acquisition or management. 2) shifts in main modes of transportation, and 3) change in public perception of natural resources. Results from GIS analysis of annexation trends suggests suitability to two of the three urban growth models used.
