The landslide that devastated the community of Oso, Washington last weekend occurred on land that had experienced its share of slides in the past, and while Cottage Grove doesn’t feature an area that poses such a landslide danger, certain areas within the city limits carry a “moderate” landslide risk, according to officials with the City of Cottage Grove Planning Department.

“It’s really Mt. David,” City Planner Amanda Ferguson said of the risk of landslides in the city, pointing out the area around Holly Street and Kalapuya Way as being at a specific risk for a slide. “That’s pretty much it, though there is some risk on the hills above Starfire Lumber.”
