The Mill Creek District Plan provides a strategic vision for the evolution of 800 acres from an institutional and agricultural area to a new employment, recreation and natural-resource district. Selected by the governor to be one of 25 “shovel-ready” employment sites, the area utilizes a focused master plan that calls for development through a joint partnership of the State of Oregon and the City of Salem. Otak prepared the master plan including land use, stormwater management and infrastructure elements. The State will use this plan to market individual tracts for industrial and commercial development. Otak has continued to provide infrastructure engineering services to the City and State during implementation. Work has included design and construction management of regional stormwater improvements, and design coordination and review assistance on design applications by others.
