FLOOD WARNING

SANDBAG STATIONS:  A sandbag station is set up at the City's Highway 47 shop which is directly across from Howard Drive.

A second Sandbag station will be set up in the City Park in the upper parking lot by the softball field.

Clatskanie has been described as a “Norman Rockwell” picturesque small city nestled in green hills and valleys on the coastal range in northwest Oregon.  Our population within the city limits is approximately 1,800, but we consider the community outside those limits to be a valuable asset as well.

 

Clatskanie is a strong, independent community with small town values and support.  Some good examples of this strength are:

·         51 years ago, the community recognized a need for a swimming pool.  There had been four youths taken in tragic drownings that summer in the rivers.  This community pulled together, raised funds, and through volunteer efforts built a safe and well maintained community pool.

·         Several years ago, the community decided it needed a new library.  Again with local donations and volunteer labor a wonderful library is available.

·         Three years ago, the community recognized the need to promote a drug-free community and supported a K-9 project with local donations that resulted in purchasing a trained drug dog.  This project has been extremely successful.

 

Clatskanie sponsors a wonderful 4th of July celebration that dates back over 100 years.  Also during the month of August our city park is filled during the Blue Grass Festival and Quilt show and again during the Blues Festival.

 

Clatskanie also has over 70 miles of wonderful calm water in the Clatskanie River and adjacent sloughs for kayaking.  Our city park has a walking trail and is a jewel in the center of our city.

 

These are just a few examples of the strength, purpose and desirability of our community.  Please visit us if you are in the vicinity.  We would love to meet you.
