$100,000 Grant From Oregon Heritage
For City Of Woodburn

1911 and Now

    The City of Woodburn received notification this week that it was awarded an Oregon Main Street Revitalization grant in the amount of $100,000 for the Bungalow Theater and Museum Restoration Project.
    Oregon Heritage, a division of Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, awarded 27 matching grants worth $2,355,700 to Oregon Main Street Network organizations across the state for building projects that encourage economic revitalization. Awards ranged from $17,500-$100,000 and included fa├žade improvements, elevator accessibility, building preservation, seismic upgrades, to name a few.
    "We are excited to receive this award", said Assistant City Administrator Jim Row. "This project will allow us to make important investments in two buildings that are very historically significant to Woodburn."
    The Bungalow Theater and Museum are located in Downtown Woodburn. The buildings were constructed in 1894 and housed retail uses over the years and Woodburn's first movie theater (Bungalow Theater circa 1911-1952). The City purchased the buildings in the 1990s in order to preserve the community's history by transforming one building into the Woodburn Museum and preserving the remaining remnants of the Bungalow Theater in the adjoining building.
    Funds received from the Oregon Main Street Revitalization grant will be used to complete necessary roof and seismic upgrades which will allow for additional improvements to be made.
    Once restored, the goal is to enhance the museum displays to reflect Woodburn's diverse people and agricultural past and restore the Bungalow Theater to be used for local theatrical productions, music and dance recitals, to play movies and many other activities.

Third Bridge: Open House

    The Third Bridge will improve public safety, livability for residents and access to the market for businesses sizes. The Salem Chamber is committed to planning for the future of the regional economy, which is why it is imperative to build a third bridge across the Willamette between downtown and West Salem.
