Public Meeting on the Cultural District

When: 6:30 p.m. Wed., Oct. 12

Where: Newberg Public Library

A public meeting to discuss conceptual plans for the area known as the Cultural District will be held 6:30 pm. Wed., Oct. 12 in Newberg Public Library.

Architects from Hennebery Eddy and Landscape Architects from Mayer/Reed will present conceptual plans derived from the input from the community and ideas and concepts from the Project for Public Spaces workshops held in recent months.

Topics will include potential for land use within the four-block district, district identity, festivals and events, parking and circulation.


In the center of Newberg, a place is being reborn. For years, the area surrounding the Newberg Public Library and Central School has been a civic destination for the community. With the development of the Chehalem Cultural Center and Rotary Centennial Park the area has continued to grow. Today, along with the library, this area has become known as the Cultural District.

The vision of the City of Newberg, Chehalem Park and Recreation District, Newberg Downtown Coalition, neighbors and stakeholders is to identify and strengthen the cultural district as a gathering place where people discover the literary, artistic, and historical culture of the area, attend a class or program, check out books, view an exhibit, participate in a community event, or simply sit on a bench and visit with a friend.

For details, visit the new webpage for the project at www.newbergoregon.gov/library/cultural-district-development-plans-activities.
