Newberg Cultural District
The Newberg Downtown Coalition has joined with the city, library, parks district and Chehalem Cultural Center to develop the Newberg Cultural District, construction is targeted for completion in time for the Holiday Tree Lighting. This ambitious plan includes a water feature, outdoor reading area, stage and gazebo.
One of the most cost-effective ways to improve property values and the pedestrian experience is through color. We encourage downtown merchants and building owners considering improvements to their facades, architectural elements and awnings to use our suggested downtown color palette to help bring a bright, coherent new look for downtown. For an example of our palette at work, check out the new paint colors at Art Elements Gallery and the Wine Barrel planters throughout downtown.
Ever heard of “Spring Cleaning”? We approve of the concept so much that we schedule a clean-up party for the Saturday before Memorial Day AND again in September to coincide with George Fox’s Serve Day. Volunteers from the city descend onto the “grassy knoll” (on the corner First St and Howard, next to the Post Office and across from City Hall) where they’re assigned clean-up and beautification projects around downtown. Come join us on May 17th at 10:00 am!
