Woodburn City Council Approves Annexation of Specht Property

December 20, 2017

In 2011, Specht Development, Inc. entered into an agreement to purchase 108 acres of land located adjacent to the Woodburn Winco Foods Distribution Center (in the SE quadrant of the intersection of Butteville Road and Highway 219, Wooburn, OR). Specht anticipates that this property will accommodate up to 2 million square feet of industrial space.

The property was outside of the City of Woodburn’s Urban Growth Boundary (UGB). The Oregon State Land Conservation and Development Commission approved the expansion in 2007. In April of 2015, the City announced an agreement with the appellants of the UGB expansion. On December 11, 2017 the Woodburn City Council unanimously voted to approve annexation of the land.
