Community Profile: Umatilla Chemical Depot, Oregon

UMADRA was established in 1996 under a state law covering intergovernmental cooperation and agreements and recognized by the State of Oregon through Revised Statute 190. Although it was not formally recognized by the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) until January 2009, the 14 member board has been involved with planning for the future use of Umatilla Chemical Depot (UMCD) since the facility was first placed on the 1988 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) list.

The purpose of UMADRA is to plan for and implement a strategy to reuse the 19,728 acres of federally managed property by the U.S.Department of the Army. The three overarching objectives of UMADRA’s reuse of the UMCD include:

1. Economic development
2. Environmental restoration
3. Support for potential continued military interests
