Community Facility Development

NeighborWorks Umpqua helps communities with infrastructure construction projects and community facility upgrades. These include historic building renovations, street/storm drainage improvements, water/sewer upgrades, food bank and senior center development, park and play structures, visitors’ centers and more. We help with everything from predevelopment to the ribbon cutting.

Some community projects have included the Oakland City Center, the Ohlsen-Baxter Community Center and the Glendale/Powers Bike Route.

NeighborWorks Umpqua assisted the City of Oakland with the rehabilitation of a vacant municipal building listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This helped to solve the critical shortage of space faced by the city. Oakland had 4,000 square feet for its municipal court, police and city hall office space. The 18,000 square feet restoration improved the working environment of 12 city employees creating adequate meeting space for the city council, city offices, police department, library and a co-op playschool in the daylight basement.

Washington School is also a showcase Community Center. It added 6,000 square feet for community activities with kitchen and meeting space for events. Shoehorning an elevator into this historic building let us make the building fully accessible. The project utilized funding from 20 different sources, as well as $50,000 in local community donations.

NeighborWorks Umpqua helped the City of Myrtle Point build the 6000 square foot Ohlsen/Baxter Building that houses the OSU Extension Administration offices and a fully modern community room equipped with a commercial kitchen. The building was paid for by a combination of grants, local donations and a low-interest loan from ShoreBank.
