The Boardman City Council has announced the four finalists in the City Motto Contest.

In an effort to promote community interest in activities happening in the city, the council chose to ask for public involvement in creating a new motto that will aid in a new logo. A total of 70 submissions and 47 participants were collected. Each winner was awarded prizes from various businesses around town.

The four winners, announced at the council’s December meeting, are:

  • Community winner – Noah Reaves – “Where potential comes to grow”
  • Riverside Jr/Sr High winner – Seth Hammond – “Beauty around the bend”
  • Windy River winner – Mikayla Mickles – “Where river meets opportunity”
  • Sam Boardman Winner – Hadley Coleman – “Small town, big dreams”

City Manager Brandon Hammond will be working with the finalists to compile additional ideas for the public to vote on in the coming months.

Also at the December meeting, councilors heard from the Oregon Department of Transportation regarding an upcoming project to update sidewalk ramps to meet ADA requirements at both freeway intersections.
