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.
In December 2022 and January 2023, Monroe lost three exceptional individuals who volunteered, led, and supported our community through multiple decades of combined service. These three individuals also have the unique distinction of serving together on the Monroe City Council from 1996 to 1998. Please read these tributes that honor the memories and accomplishments of Tony Baker, Floyd Billings, and Luane Waytenick.
