Oregon's newest city has been working toward this since last year, but the county commissioners needed to approve it.

 

They did during their Monday meeting.

 

Elaine Howard, an urban renewal consulant from Portland, hired by LaPine says they have big plans for the district.

 

"The projects they're looking forward to are street scape projects to improve our sense of identity.  Right now there's a big commercial strip from one end to the other which doesn't give people a big reason to stop and shop.  They have infrastructre projects in mind, so they can allocate funds for that."

 

Leaders in LaPine hope the district will allow them to attract restaurants and businesses to the area to spur more growth.

 

The LaPine plan hopes to funnel 7 million into urban renewal projects over the next twenty five years.
