The Lakeview area has an abundance of land available for commercial development. Many areas qualify for the Oregon Investment Advantage which is an income tax credit program. Many areas also qualify as a Lake County Enterprise Zone, which allows property tax incentives.
These incentives, along with the relatively low cost of land in the area, make Lakeview an excellent location for commercial and industrial development.
The Lakeview area has extensive geothermal resources available for commercial utilization. The Town of Lakeview has wells already developed and a system designed to allow for expansion and the addition of numerous commercial users.
Geothermal wells in the area have temperatures up to 205o F. This allows for a wide range of geothermal applications including greenhouses, facility heating, and agricultural applications. Several local facilities are already utilizing this resource including a commercial greenhouse operation and the Oregon Department of Corrections Warner Creek Facility.
Significant geothermal resources exist in the north and south areas of Lakeview's Urban Growth Boundary and the Town of Lakeview is currently working on developing these resources.
Lakeview is located in Southeastern Oregon, 14 miles from the California border. The Town is centrally located between Bend, Oregon and Reno, Nevada. Two major highways, 395 and 140, pass through Lakeview, and the area is a popular route from the Willamette Valley and Central Oregon to Reno.
