The Monroe Community Library is operated by the Benton County Library District which is supported by all the taxpayers of the county. But the building belongs to the Monroe community. A group of neighbors recognized the need to plan now for the building’s preservation into the future. The result is a partnership of South Benton Community Enhancement Association, the City of Monroe, and the Corvallis-Benton County Library Foundation to create a permanent fund to repair and maintain the elements of the library as they wear out.

Transportation Growth Management Grant Awarded to City
The City of Monroe has been awarded a Transportation Growth Management (TGM) Grant to fund the development of a Riverside District Master Plan. The Riverside District Master Plan will allow Monroe to adequately plan and realize the community-generated vision to reorient the community towards the river and take advantage of its aesthetic, recreational, economic, and environmental opportunities. The space where the downtown, Long Tom River, and City Park intersect has been dubbed Monroe’s ‘Riverside District’ (See Map for context). The TGM Grant will allow Monroe to plan for synergistic land uses and transportation connections in this area to create a walk-able, vibrant, and sustainable district – enhancing resident’s quality of life and our economy.
