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 City of Monroe lifted its Moderate Water Emergency Alert at their August 28th Council meeting citing cooler weather and repairs to the water plant. Mayor Sheets reminds the City there is still fire danger and the City does needs to conserve water and be able to fill the water reservoir quickly in case of a fire.
