Update -New info has been added to the website about Design Committee projects under Projects:Banner and Projects:Steam Donkey.
The Design Committee has just finalized the Façade Improvement Program and received Board approval to launch the program! They will be launching the program on April 15th! We have $23,000 in grant funding to fund cosmetic improvements to storefronts adjacent to highways 38 and 101 in all three districts. Improvements will involve paint, signage, lighting, landscaping, awning, and general visual improvements. Keep your eyes and ears open for future details to come on the Façade Improvement Program. The Design Committee is also raising funds to place colorful banners in all three districts. They currently raised $1000 and are going to be raising additional funds to develop banners in all three districts. They partnered with a professional banner designer and will hope to have the final designs over the next few weeks. The Committee also received $500 in a grant towards the Steam Donkey Preservation Project. We hope to have the funnel and top piece fabricated and developed by Father’s Day weekend to display at our Oregon Divisional Chainsaw Sculpting Championship.
