Gales Creek Chamber passes motion to insist Washington County hold a public meeting in Gales Creek on proposed Gales Creek Bridge Project

March 17th 2015:  The Gales Creek Chamber of Commerce voted unanimously to pass a motion to insist that "Washington County hold a public meeting in the Gales Creek community to inform residents and businesses of the Gales Creek area how the proposed Gales Creek Bridge Project will impact citizens in the Gales Creek area."

Concerns have been raised that include how access to schools, farms, and emergency services vital to the health and success of the Gales Creek community will be impacted; and it is the opinion of the Gales Creek Chamber that every effort be made by Washington County to hold a public meeting in the community that is most effected by the proposed bridge project.

Gales Creek Chamber of Commerce to host guest speaker Beth Rankin

This month, we are hosting a special guest, Beth Rankin. Beth is a marketer and urban planner from McMinnville. Recently, she has been leading the initiative to develop a year round indoor farmer’s market in Forest Grove. The chamber board invited her to speak for a special meeting last month, and she gave a fantastic presentation on the opportunities that Gales Creek has to offer, and how we as a community can improve on the infrastructure we already have to grow our economic strength. We invite you and your families to this event (cookies will be served!), and encourage you to spread the word- this meeting will be informative and relevant for all community members in Gales Creek.

Gales Creek Chamber to support Quilt Block Trail in Washington County

At the monthly meeting on February 18th, the Gales Creek Chamber of Commerce voted unanimously to ““publicly support the initiative to establish a quilt block trail in Washington County.”  This project is spearheaded by the Westside Quilters Guild, and has run into unnecessary red tape from the Washington County Department of Land Use and Transportation.  

Please write to the Washington County Commissioners and add your support to this project!
