ANDERSON, CA - A Roseburg Forest Product sawmill, closed 20 years ago, is at the center of annexation action by the Anderson Planning Commission.

The planning commission recently voted unanimously to approve the annexation of 385 acres to the south and east of the city, according to the Anderson Valley Post. The annexation target icontains about 213 acres owned by Roseburg, including 140 acres of a lumber mill closed in 1994.

Roseburg is supporting the annexation, which would allow the property to be developed as a potential mix of industrial, residential and commercial zoning. Development would likley require the city to finance water, sewer and road projects.
