Living Here

Whether you're looking to relocate here or do business here, this is your one-stop resource to get you setup up and settled in.

Once you've seen the breathtaking views, meet the hospitable residents, and explore the corners of untamed beauty, you'll know - Union County, OR, is a wonderful place to live, work, play, and love.  Nestled in the northeastern corner of Oregon, Union County is the commercial, cultural, educational hub of the region.  With a population of nearly 26,0000, the area is not shy on amenities.  From the County Airport to the La Grande and Union County Business Parks and Eastern Oregon University, Union County is a strong supporter of thriving businesses and individuals.  Quick access to Interstate 84, Union County is situated two hours from Boise, ID, Tri-Cities, WA, and only four hours from Portland, OR.

When you're here, you know your in-town commute time is definitely going to be less than five minutes.  You can always expect crisp, clean, mountain-fresh air.  You'll always bump into a friend when you're out and about the town.  But just because Union County is rural-frontier and a hop-skip-and-jump from major metropolitan areas, doesn't mean there aren't the best things in life you're looking for:  quality K-12 schools, a great university, excellent healthcare facilities, state-of-the-art gyms and other services.  You name it, you can find it here.

Union County is more than just a place - it's a state of mind.  Relax, rejuvenate and recharge.  Thrive.
