Luncheon at the Abernethy and Zoom Meeting Options Available – See Details below

Come hear representatives from the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde as they share their updated vision to transform Oregon City’s waterfront at the former Blue Heron Mill site and Willamette Falls into a vibrant mixed-use community. With the completion of the Legacy Project and associated Riverwalk, this unique destination will welcome visitors, spur economic redevelopment, restore native habitats and invest in sharing the history and culture at the Falls. In order for all this to happen, there needed to be strong relationships and partnerships established between various government agencies and numerous public/private entities that are all working together for the common good. After more than a year of extensive collaboration between these groups, the first phase of the public access Willamette Falls Riverwalk is about to begin providing up-close and personal engagement with the dramatic setting for thousands of individuals each year. We at the OC Business Alliance welcome your attendance for this special event either in person or via a zoom connection.
