Some City Services Closed Due To Governor's Freeze


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and based on Governor Brown’s guidance, the City of

Newport will be closing various facilities, and limiting access to others, effective November

18, 2020. The closures and limited access will remain in place until December 2, 2020

unless further extended. The city will reassess these closures based on future guidance

from the Governor, and communicate any changes with the community.


City of Newport facility closures include: Newport Public Library (except for take-out);

60+ Activity Center; Newport Recreation Center; and the Aquatic Center. At this time,

limited public access will continue at the Newport City Hall, and no public entry at the city’s

Fire Stations is permitted. The Newport City Hall will continue to be open to the public from 8:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M., Monday through Thursday, except by appointment. A door monitor will be on duty at the front door to ensure anyone entering the building is wearing a mask and has their temperature taken.


City meetings, including the City Council, Planning Commission, and all advisory

committees will resume virtual meetings. Public comment may be made in writing to

publiccomment@newportoregon.gov, at least four hours before the start of the meeting,

or by contacting the meeting staff to request the Zoom meeting information to participate

virtually. All non-essential meetings scheduled in city buildings are canceled until further notice.



In Lincoln City the community center will be closed starting today (11/18) until December 2. The Driftwood public library will be suspending in-person computer appointments for at least two weeks, per Governor Brown's freeze order. The library will continue to offer curbside service and online services. For more information about picking up items curbside, or about any of our other services, please call at 541-996-2277.
