Willamette is more than just a neighborhood in Clackamas County’s city of West Linn. It is both the historic core of town, providing a sense of community and place, and a group of volunteer merchants and residents dedicated to preserving small town charm and a healthy economy among great shops, services and restaurants. Implementing the Main Street Four Point Approach™, which has been successful in over 2,000 cities and towns across America, will attain these goals. The four points include the Design, Economic Vitality, Organization and Promotions.
Historic Willamette Main Street’s mission is to celebrate and preserve the rich history and natural beauty of the area, invest in the heart of our downtown, and create a community where local residents and visitors can dine, shop and connect with others.
