City Commissioners Rocky Smith, Denyse McGriff and Rachel Lyles Smith attended the event.

Downtown Oregon City Association employees can stand at the top of the elevator inside the kiosk to direct pedestrians to sights of interest in the area. Due to COVID-19, there is no longer an operator stationed inside the elevator.

Passengers now push the buttons to operate the elevator between downtown and the McLoughlin Promenade 130 feet above on the city's "second level." Capacity is limited to two passengers inside the elevator, and the elevator employees are responsible for regular sanitizing.
