Yachats Oregon

Welcome to the City of Yachats New Site

Yachats, Gem of the Oregon Coast

Looking to the future and the next 50 years, members of the City Council opened a new chapter in the history of Yachats by hiring our first city administrator. The City’s new web site and awareness of the Trails Committee design work led to a discussion about the need for a new city logo. This topic was discussed by the council for a couple of months. A few modifications were suggested; implemented and adopted by the council at the July meeting. The new logo now appears on the city’s main web site.

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our community, we hope you will appreciate the new design as a symbol of renewal and a celebration of all the qualities that make Yachats the Gem of the Oregon Coast.

Current News

HWY 101 PROJECT UPDATED 03-05-17 3/26/2017
HWY 101 PAVING IS SET TO BEGIN April 3- 7 Depending on the weather, Hwy 101 paving is planned from Prospect to 7th, either Tue-Wed or Wed-Thu of the first week of April. There will have to be one or two mornings when construction starts early, as we try to limit interference with downtown businesses during their open hours and try to limit paving to only two days. They cannot pave in heavy rain. It is encouraging to see the whole project taking place and the contractors are staying right on track, honoring the requests of local businesses to reduce construction presence during the week of Spring Break, when we have so many added bodies in town, and business can start to come out of the winter doldrums. It has been a long, hard winter, weather-wise, and we all look forward to spring and a finished project with new sidewalks, new lamp posts and improved safety for drivers and pedestrians alike. Our goal is to get this done safely and efficiently, but noise and inconvenience are a necessary part of improvements. Thank you for your patience.
