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.

Water Line Behind the Commons 2/15/2018

Public Works will be installing a new 8 inch water line behind the Commons next to the picnic shelter and the playground starting February 20th through March if necessary. The crew will make every effort to keep the area accessible to the public but requests the public’s patience during construction

The City pays for a dumpster for clean debris, which is in an enclosure at the west end of W. 6th Street, to the south of the City shop and plant. Regular hours are 8am-3:30pm, Monday through Friday, EXCEPT for when it is windy and the gates might be damaged, and when the dumpster is full, and Dahl's have not yet replaced it. Please do not place invasive plants or noxious weeds in the dumpster. Dahl's cannot accept those kinds of plants into the landfill as "debris", and then the City gets billed for tons at the "garbage" rate, rather than the reduced rate for plant debris. NO knotweed, ivy, pampas grass, Scotch broom, blackberry, morning glory, spurge laurel, tansy ragwort, loosestrife, clematis or holly, please. No household garbage, plastics, wires, etc. Please do not dump your load in front of the gate when the gate is closed. PLEASE DO NOT USE BIG PAPER BAGS LIKE DOG FOOD COMES IN - SEEMS LIKE A GOOD IDEA, BUT DAHL'S CANNOT TAKE THEM. THE CREW HAD TO CRAWL INTO THE BIN AND REMOVE ALL OF THE BIG WAL-MART PAPER BAGS THAT SOMEONE USED. Thank you.
