Stanfield is the Perfect Place to Live or Start/Relocate your Business

Business:100 years

The City of Stanfield is conveniently located on I-84 and Highway 395. Stanfield supports a strong community and family environment yet is perfectly situated in Umatilla County to reach almost 50,000 customers within a 30 min. radius for any business sector.

Stanfield is only 10 minutes from Hermiston; 20-30 minutes from Pendleton, Umatilla, and Boardman; and about a 45-minute drive to the Tri-Cities, WA.

The city recently annexed additional land off of one of the busiest I-84 freeway interchanges from Portland to the Idaho border. This land is perfect for a wide variety of businesses: 

  • The location is a perfect central hub to reach all the major markets and save on transportation and other costs.
  • Beyond residents in the county, the I-84 interchange has an over abundance of traffic stopping to fill up on gas on their way to and from Portland. The truck stop is one of the largest around and is always busy. This allows for a perfect opportunity to capitalize on local and drive through traffic for Hotels, Fast Food Restaurants, and Sit-Down Restaurants.
  • The City has grown into a regional player and partner in transportation and quality government; poised for effective economic growth and development.

Stanfield also has many opportunities in downtown to lease or build. Unique restaurants would do well in this community as would medical, dental, insurance, and any other trade business. 

The city is economically minded and is willing to work with you. If you have further questions, reach out to the city manager and have a discussion so we can work together to build a stronger tomorrow.


The City of Stanfield boasts an array of parks for all ages with baseball fields, soccer fields, basketball courts, playgrounds, and walking paths. We have a beautiful new subdivision on the hill that continues to grow. If you are interested in building, contact city hall and we will be happy to get you in contact with some great developers or land options. 

Stanfield is also only 15 minutes from the mighty Columbia River and within an hour of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts of all types.

The city is perfectly situated to live whether you work in town, Hermiston, Pendleton, Umatilla, Boardman, or any surrounding area.

Additionally, Stanfield has some of the best rated schools in the area. It is a perfect place to live, with a friendly, safe, and inviting environment.

New Water Rate Structure

Starting on the March 2020 Water Bill you will notice a new water rate structure. This decision was made after an extensive water rate study conducted by the city and its engineers throughout 2019 to create a more consistent equitable approach based on consumption (rather than a combination of consumption and meter size); to plan for city water infrastructure maintenance, and replacement needs over the next ten years; as well as to encourage water conservation.
