Weekly Watch: Urban Renewal and Economic Development

  • The City received a grant from Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) through the Oregon Main Streets Program, to conduct a walking survey of the commercial historic properties along Highway 101. The staff will be in town Monday, June 24th– Wednesday, June 26th.  The survey’s findings will help the city determine the historic integrity of buildings throughout the historic business districts and can help the city leverage historic assets to encourage economic growth and revitalization.  There are no decisions being made at the time of the survey and properties will not be designated historic in any way as a direct result of the survey work being done.  If you have questions contact the Planning and Community Development Department at (541-996-2153).
  • Staff continues negotiations with developers on property development. Staff’s goal is to have 3-5 of the properties under Development Agreement by the end of the calendar year.
