Mill Creek Corporate Center (Regional Wetland Mitigation/Stormwater Management)

Location: Salem, OR
Client: Oregon Department of Administrative Services

The State of Oregon and the City of Salem are co-developing portions of the Oregon Department of Corrections’ 2,000-acre farm property in southeast Salem to transition the area from its institutional and agricultural character to a new employment, recreation and natural resource district. Otak led the preparation of the master plan, which included land use, stormwater management and infrastructure plans. Among Otak’s continuing work with the City and State is a district specific Stormwater Management Plan, and the design of a 70-acre Open Space area to accommodate over 40 acres of on-site wetland mitigation and regional stormwater detention. Open Space construction began in 2011. Planting, irrigation and monitoring will continue through 2016.
