Monroe Oregon is located in South-East Benton County and nestled in the foothills of the Coast Range. Strategically positioned in the mid-Willamette Valley, the City of Monroe is between Corvallis and Oregon State University to the north and Eugene with the University of Oregon to the south. This unique location offers very diverse opportunities including hiking and mountain biking, fishing on the Alsea River, Division I sports at both Oregon State University and the University of Oregon, or wine tasting at local wineries. Monroe’s beautiful natural surroundings offers an attractive site for business and tourist development.
The Monroe Beautification Committee dedicated the new art sculpture at the south entrance to the city Wednesday, June 21. The sculpture welcomes visitors and celebrates the rich heritage of the city.
The sculptor, Wade Skinner, beautification committee members, and Mayor Paul Canter attended the ceremony. The sculpture was made possible through a generous grant from the Benton County Cultural Coalition, the local agency of the Oregon Cultural Trust, as well as local businesses, private donors, and the City of Monroe.
The Monroe Beautification Committee, a subcommittee of the City Council, is comprised of citizen volunteers, several of whom are graduates of the Ford Family Foundation’s Ford Institute Leadership Program.
