On December 14th, City Manager, Ron Chandler and Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau Director, Ed Dreistadt served up more than just great food at the Family Promise Celebrity Servers Fundraiser.
It was an evening filled with improv entertainment and communal generosity. Mr. Dreistadt shared his banjo skills while Mr. Chandler serenaded guests in hopes of bringing in big tips. This was all part of a friendly competition that pitted The City of Lincoln City against Chinook Winds Casino to raise money for Family Promise a nonprofit organization seeking to provide shelter and comprehensive assistance to homeless families.
The evening was a huge success acquiring over $5000 for a great cause. Thanks to the exceptional staff at Ace’s Bar and Grill, Chinook Winds Casino, and everyone that came out to support this fundraiser.
Noticeable headway is being made along the West side of Highway 101. The boring of conduit has begun to allow for the undergrounding of the overhead electrical and communication wires. D River Wayside Park provides an alluring early glimpse of the impressive beauty of Lincoln City. Removing the overhead powerlines will enhance the appeal of the area and allow for the ocean corridor to be front and center.
The project spans from approximately NW 2nd Drive to SW Ebb Avenue removing overhead wires on both sides of the highway. The collaborative efforts of the City’s Urban Renewal Staff, The Public Works Department, utility partners, and K & E Construction have been working to bring this beautification project to the final phases. It is expected to conclude the middle of May, 2018.
