Urban Renewal Streetscape Benches

The goal of this project was to partner with the Urban Renewal Agency to place benches throughout main street, to ensure that locals and tourists can rest as they venture down Ellensburg Avenue.  This project increased accessibility and walkability for all members of our community, as well as improving the design of the streetscape with a cohesive plant design and artistic benches.  

The first round of benches installed included locations at:​

  • The Port of Gold Beach

  • Gold Beach City Hall

  • Curry County Event Center on the Beach

  • Panther's Den Pizza 

  • Interiors

  • Rogue Outdoor Store

  • Pit Stop Java/76 Gas Station

In addition, memorial fish plaques have been added to most of the streetscape benches to serve as a way to let our local community members honor beloved members of their families. 


This year, we plan to add more streetscape benches throughout Gold Beach, as a way to promote a cohesive look and design along main street.
