WILLAMETTE FALLS HERITAGE AREA COALITION (WFHAC)
What is the Willamette Falls Heritage Area Coalition? As of September, 2011, this important foundation partner is an Oregon nonprofit corporation, aiming for 501(c)3 status.

WFHAC PROJECTS:

While it awaits approval (think positively) of the Feasibility Study, the WFHAC is planning and coordinating a three-day festival at the falls in mid-October to celebrate the reopening of the West Linn-Oregon City Arch bridge. See the WFHAC website for developing details:   WFHAC Homepage

The Heritage Area Coalition collaborated with ODOT to throw a celebration January 15th, 3-5 p.m., on the occasion of the two-year closure of the 1923 West Linn-Oregon City Arch Bridge. Look for the coalition to work with ODOT on an even bigger party when it's time for the reopening.

See "West Linn -- Oregon City Bridges" link in the main menu.
