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.

Lincoln County Burn Ban 7/27/2018

 The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board is closing all burning countywide (including in cities) effective at noon July 27. The fire ban applies to wood, charcoal, and other flame sources that cannot be turned off with a valve. Liquid fuel stoves or cooking devices that CAN be turned off with a valve are permitted but cannot be left unattended.

Fire danger is at an extreme high, even in our normally-damp coastal areas. To compound the danger, many local fire agencies currently have resources deployed to assist with fighting the many wildland fires active in Oregon. Lincoln County has sent out two task force groups in the past week, and will likely be activated again this summer. The unusually high fire danger coupled with the reduced available firefighting resources make a complete ban on burning the right thing to do.

This burn ban will remain in effect until further notice. For additional updates please sign up for Lincoln Alerts at www.co.lincoln.or.us/alerts. Please contact your local fire agency if you have any questions.
