Relocate to Roseburg
Douglas County boasts the small-town Mayberry charm where generations of families and farmers pass down their land and everyone seems to know each other. The county is also a melting pot of ages and origins from all over the world.
The City of Roseburg attracts young families for its community and culture; gardeners, farmers and foresters for its industry; and retirees for its climate and close proximity to the ocean, mountains and Interstate. With the increase in remote careers, Roseburg is seeing steady growth with many moving here from outside locations.
As for business relocation or business startups, Roseburg and the greater Umpqua Valley is the prime spot. The area continues to see industry growth because of their economic strengths including: commercial sites available; abundance of large sites; ready for development; certified sites; access to electricity, especially for high power users at competitive costs; I-5 running through Douglas County; proximity to Port of Coos Bay; rail-served sites; rail switch yard; fiber optic broadband; availability of water, especially at the former international paper site; speed and customer service through the entitlement process; four enterprise zones; aggressive incentives through Douglas County Industrial Development Board (with available resources); economic development partners aligned and work well together; competitive wage rate; robust workforce services for recruitment, screening and training; City of Roseburg sustainability policy; housing prices significantly lower than the national average; reasonable cost of living; immediate access to range of outdoor recreation.
