Abstract
  • The annual growth rate for the Corvallis-Benton County area has traditionally been higher than the growth rate for the State of Oregon. Corvallis is considered to be one of the most densely settled communities in the state. Since 1972, Corvallis has experienced a drastic decline in the number of housing units built each year. This decrease in housing construction coupled with the increase in population has created a near 0% vacancy rate in the city and an exceptionally high demand for housing. Future population projections indicate that Corvallis will continue to grow faster than the State of Oregon, creating a problem of where to channel that growth. The most logical area to channel future urbanization will be into a number of drainage basins surrounding Corvallis. Of these, Oak Creek Basin is one of the most logical basins which will urbanize, This paper will determine the amount of urbanizable land in Oak Creek Basin, identify existing physical constraints to development within the basin, relate problems to the provision of urban services in the basin, determine the number of dwelling units and people that can be supported in the basin based upon the physical limitations and the provision of future urban services.
