HISTORIC PROPERTIES, PRESERVATION RESOURCES SHARED IN NORTH BEND
The City of North Bend is hosting a gathering to explore historic
properties and learn about resources available to maintain and promote
them tonight at 7 p.m. at the city council chambers.
North Bend and Coos Bay have numerous historic properties that are a
part of the unique character of those communities. Interpretation and
promotion of these special places adds to the economic health and
livability of a community.
Oregon Heritage, that includes the State Historic Preservation Office,
will present the results of a historic resources survey of downtown
North Bend. They will also share information about grant programs, the
Oregon Main Street program, and tax incentives that apply to both
communities. David Voss will provide information on North Bend’s new
grant program. To find out more about the meeting contact David Voss at
Planner at northbendcity.org or 541-756-8535. To learn more about

NAI BESTOWS FIRST PLACE AWARD UPON KAM WAH CHUNG
Kam Wah Chung has received a first place award in the National
Association’s Interpretation (NAI) 2012 Interpretive Media Competition
for its audio program. This is the first NAI first place national honor
for Oregon State Parks. Previous awards include placing third in the
nation in 2006 for the Champoeg Friends newsletter and, in 2008, placing
third in the nation for South Beach State Park wayside exhibits.
If you have not been to Kam Wah Chung lately, plan a trip in the spring
or summer to see the new interpretive displays and the enhanced tours of
the historic building that feature interactive audio and lighting. It is
truly a state of the art presentation.
