With an eye toward enhancing economic development and improving the quality of life for Tillamook’s citizens, the City developed a 25-year plan, which began in 2006, to revitalize the community and established an Urban Renewal Agency to oversee it.

The Urban Renewal Plan was developed in a series of eight public meetings and public workshops held between January and September 2006. The meetings were conducted by a Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) appointed by the City Council. The CAC reviewed and helped develop all aspects of the Urban Renewal Plan. Both the City Planning Commission and the Tillamook County Board of Commissioners discussed and signed off on the plan and it was adopted by the Tillamook City Council in November of 2006.

The purpose of the Urban Renewal Plan is to eliminate blighting influences found in the Tillamook Urban Renewal Area, to implement goals and objectives of Tillamook’s Comprehensive Plan and to support the continued development of the area as a safe, clean and affordable community.

TURA offers assistance in several different ways to business owners, building owners and residential owners.  There are grants, loans, or a combination of the two.  

  • Facade Grant Program provides a matching grant up to $5,000.  
  • The Grant-Loan Program provides assistance up to $100,000.  
  • The Blade Sign Program provides assistance for signage.  
  • There is also Facade Design assistance available.
