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.

Code Enforcement 6/26/2018

Because summer is the busiest time for Yachats visitors and residents it can also be the busiest time for code enforcement.

The City Council approved a 2018-19 budget that creates an employee position to handle code enforcement duties and other tasks. Until that person is hired, the City is contracting on an interim basis to deal with code enforcement issues.

There are several ways to contact the city about possible code enforcement issues. These include:

  • n  Stop by City Hall and fill out a complaint form
  • n  Email Codeenforcement@YachatsMail.org
  • n  Call City Hall at 541-547-3565 and hit the * (star) key
  • n  Call the code enforcement cell phone, 541-590-0053

During the summer, issues tend to focus on vacation rentals and property with overgrown or noxious weeds. The city has extensive codes dealing with both. You can learn about these ordinances at www.yachatsoregon.org. The vacation rental code is Chapter 4.08; the overgrown lot and/or noxious weed ordinance is Chapter 5.08.110.

City Council Vision

Our village is a place where natural resources are valued and protected, where diversity is celebrated, and where a vibrant economy and sense of community pride create and recreate a living spirit. Yachats cares not just for its citizens’ basic needs but also supports them in their efforts to excel mentally, physically, artistically, and spiritually. It is a community with an enduring sense of itself.
