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.

SURVEY - Possible night meetings 1/13/2017
Yachats City Council is changing its meeting days, and they are considering having one of their monthly meetings at 6:00pm, for the convenience of residents who work during the day and are unable to attend daytime meetings. The new meeting days will be the first and second Wednesday of each month (except when scheduling conflicts require moving them). Please email postmaster@goyachats.com and let us know if you would be likely to attend council meetings if they were at 6:00pm on a Wednesday night. Please email, rather than call, so we have an email and aren't on the phone. Another option to consider - if the evening meetings were only during summer months, would that make a difference to you? NOBODY likes to go to a meeting in the cold and dark... If it appears evening meetings are not needed, they will be held at 9:30am the first Wednesday and 2:00pm the second Wednesday.
