    Taylor Campi decamps, city seeks vendors for Arts at the Creek, more Estacada news

    City’s Campi departs, firm hired to help the city

    Estacada’s Community Development Director, Taylor Campi, is leaving the city for an opportunity elsewhere.

    The city is evaluating its staffing needs with Campi’s departure and hired Portland’s Winterbrook Planning to help out in the planning and development department while the city evaluates its requirements and comes up with a personnel plan.

    “This contract will help balance staffing needs and also help us comply with the state required timelines for land use applications,” council documents said.

    The city expects to spend less than $15,000 for these interim planning services from Winterbrook.

    In prior times of high demand for planning help, the city contracted with Clackamas County for assistance, but the county is unable to pitch in anymore.

    The Estacada City Council approved the plan at it’s Monday, April 8 meeting.

    City councilors expressed their thanks to Campi for her service to the city.

    “I want to personally thank Taylor for all the hard work she’s put in. And, she will be missed,” Councilor Jerry Tenbush said.

    What’s in (the spelling of) a name?

    Ginseng Drive has been spelled several ways in documents, maps and other official references over the decades.

    But on April 8, the Estacada City Council voted to straighten that all out by passing an ordinance officially naming the thoroughfare Ginseng Drive.

    Prior to WW1, Estacada was the largest exporter of ginseng in the U.S. The tuber is used as a tonic and is valued for its medicinal qualities.

    Crafters and artists wanted

    The second annual Arts at the Creek bash, scheduled for July, is looking for artists, crafters and sellers of handmade goods. Artist of all ages welcome.

    The music and art fair will run from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 27, at Wade Creek Park. There are registration forms on the City of Estacada’s web page and more information is available by emailing .
