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.

Smelt Sands Paving 3/11/2019

UPDATE - April 5

Good Morning,

I wanted to pass on an update to the paving schedule for Smelt Sands State Park entrance road. Road & Driveway will be on site Monday morning April 8th to start the paving project. If weather allows the project should be completed by Thursday or Friday. We will closed Smelt Sands State Park to the public late Sunday evening or early Monday morning. Access to Lemwick Lane will remain open to residents of the neighborhood while Road & Driveway complete the project.

 If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call or email me.


Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is contracting with Road and Driveway Co. out of Newport to pave the access road at Smelt Sands State Park. This work is scheduled to occur sometime between the dates of March 11, 2019 and June 17, 2019 once we get a period of dry weather.   We anticipate the work will have minimal impacts on access to your property and take less than two weeks to complete depending on weather.  When we get a confirmed date for starting the project, I will send another update out to you all. We may also post a sign on the entrance to Lemwick Lane with anticipated project dates as we get closer to starting the project.

We will maintain a single lane access to Lemwick while Road and Driveway completes the project.  There should be no issues with people coming and going from Lemwick Lane during the project. 

OPRD will pave up to the current pavement on Lemwick Lane and make any needed adjustments to the roadway to make sure storm drainage has no negative impact on the neighbors at the beginning of Lemwick Lane.

We are very excited to finally get Smelt Sands entrance road paved. I would like to Thank you all for your patience during this process, it’s taken a long time to get to this point.

If you have any questions or comments feel free to call or email me. You can find my contract numbers below in my signature.

Thank you,
