Gail Yazzolino: Through development, we could create more for community to share with visitors

2019 PMG FILE PHOTO: RAYMOND RENDLEMAN - Cheryl Rice, along with grandchildren Penelope Rice and Callan Geer, read 19th-century tales at the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Oregon City to prepare for participation in the Portland Rose Festival's Grand Floral Parade.History is the heart and soul of Oregon City. Starting with the Native Americans living here for thousands of years, time immemorial.

Dr. John McLoughlin, Francis Ermatinger, the Crawfords and the End of the Oregon Trail history of the 1800s connects us nationally and internationally. History is a natural draw for visitors of all ages and backgrounds. I am always excited about possibilities that are inclusive, diverse and authentic.

COURTESY RENDERING - Summit Development's proposal in Oregon City includes a large public square on the former Rossman Landfill.A current proposed use for the old Rossman Landfill has potential for creating more for our community to share with our visitors. I am interested in the development and how we can work together in supporting the vision for a vibrant north end of Oregon City.

We are stronger together! I encourage you to go to and learn more about this exciting new opportunity.
