Johnson City is a city in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. It was a manufactured housing community owned entirely by one man, whose residents voted to incorporate by a 49 to 10 vote on June 16, 1970. This incorporation avoided a 1969 Oregon law designed to prevent the proliferation of small incorporated areas because the proponents had filed for an election before the effective date of the law. The population was 634 at the 2000 census.



Johnson City is located at 45°24′17″N 122°34′51″W / 45.404642°N 122.580738°W / 45.404642; -122.580738.[3]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.1 square miles (0.2 km2), all of it land. In fact, the city does boast one small lake, Lake Leona, which is home to migratory waterfowl. Although it's really just decorative, it's larger than a "duck pond" and is a significant feature given the small size of the city itself.
