Industrial Land & Infrastructure

Industrial land is one of the state's most valuable resources in terms of net contributions to the state's economy and tax base. The traded sector firms that locate on industrial land are an engine of expansion, spurring growth in the service sector and paying family wages to a broad spectrum of workers.

Shovel Ready Certification

Oregon's Shovel Ready Certification Program is recognized as one of the most comprehensive in the country. It is a rigorous program that is trusted by the market and has been a factor in many of the state's largest employment successes. Oregon's certified sites are ready for construction within six months or less and are verified "project-ready" for specific industry profiles.

Applications to the program are accepted in April and September each year by submitting a commitment letter and supplemental reports. Sites that have been Shovel Ready Certified must apply for recertification every two years. Recertification applications are accepted in January.
