Welcome to Estacada
 
 

ATTENTION

The Forest Service has informed the City that due to the 36 Pit Fire there will be extra sediment washing into the Clackamas River in the next several months due to winter rains. This will cause the City to spend more time and chemicals preparing it to go into the system and the reservoirs. We encourage you to use best practices for water conservation, particularly as you notice “color” in the river.  Water conservation and stored water use during this time will give operators more time to refill the reservoirs and can help save money on chemicals. Here are some links to more information on Water Conservation.

The Clackamas River Water Providers have great information on water conservation and also offer rebates for upgrading to high efficiency washing machines and toilets, among other things.

Preparedness experts recommend having a “72 Hour Kit” to sustain your household in the event of any kind of an emergency. This includes at least 1 gallon of stored water per person per day.

 

 
 

Fall is here;

It’s time to rake ‘em up!

Raking or blowing leaves from your yard into the street is not permitted by City Code.  The street sweeper is not able to sweep up large piles of leaves at the curb, and leaves left in the street can cause clogged catch basins, slippery surfaces and rotten vegetation.

 

Tips for proper leaf disposal:

 

After raking or blowing leaves into piles, there are several ways to dispose of them:

Garbage Service – Place the leaves in your garbage can.  Be careful not to exceed the weight limit.  If you bag the leaves and set them beside your garbage can, your garbage collector can pick them up for an additional charge.  Check with your garbage service if you have questions.

  • Burning – Contact the Estacada Rural Fire District (503.630.7712) to obtain a burning permit.  There is no charge for the written permit, and it stays in effect as long as you live at the same residence.
  • Compost – the leaves.
  • Mulch leaves with a lawnmower and spread the mixture over flowerbeds for winter.  The nutrients in leaves are beneficial.

BROADWAY STREETSCAPE PROJECT

The Broadway Streetscape Project will reconstruct public amenities on Broadway Street in downtown Estacada. The project is the first major step in implementing the Estacada Downtown Riverside Area Plan (EDRAP). The EDRAP was adopted in 2011 and includes a conceptual streetscape design illustrating colored street crossings, improved sidewalks, and decorative streetlamps. 

 

The Broadway Streetscape Project is aimed at celebrating Estacada’s creativity and constructing a welcoming “living room” downtown for residents and visitors. It will make Broadway Street look and feel more attractive and safe, while paving the way for further improvements. The construction will extend from 2nd Ave to OR 211/224.
