Get involved in OC's Willamette Falls project


How do you envision public space along the river to view Willamette Falls? What economic opportunities would you create on the former Blue Heron site? How can we honor the history and culture of the site and the Falls? The time is now, the voice is yours and Oregon City wants to hear your ideas at upcoming events.

On Dec. 12, Community Interactive Event #3 takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. at Ainsworth House, 19130 Lot Whitcomb Drive, Oregon City. All are invited to an interactive presentation and discussion of further-refined site design concepts.

Site design survey

Closing Nov. 15 and available on the front page of rediscoverthefalls.com, this survey will ask for your input regarding concepts, ideas and designs for the site. This is your chance to weigh in on the general proposed layout, amount and type of open space, amount and type of adaptive re-use of structures, and site circulation and access.

The survey will be sent to regional residents through Metro’s Opt In survey panel.
