Oregon’s prominence has grown tremendously these past few years. Whether it is our pure, environmental beauty, cultural vibrancy, or just us, wonderful folks, we are kicking national butt. Particularly here in Yamhill County, McMinnville being one, and perhaps the most popular of these towns. After speaking with residents, clients, imports, and outsiders, them and I concluded that in order for McMinnville to skyrocket in popularity there are a few things which need to be done.
The first, and perhaps the most apparent, is the need to address our growing homeless population. I am not certain of the most efficient way to do so, but it is a commonly hinders McMinnville’s image. I believe this a bipartisan issue, which our City is striving to mangle.
Furthermore, Mac needs a damn Costco, or something other than what we currently have. Heck, even a Target would suffice. We have an all-encompassing Walmart, Safeway, Albertson’s, and Roth’s, but we need another, “buy-everything” store.
I love Excell Fitness, but I truly believe our County has the population to support a large, privately-owned recreation center similar to the Bay Club in Tualatin, or Courthouse in Salem.
Our area is bustling with outdoor activity. It is about time that we are rewarded with an outdoor shop; clothes, fishing gear, guns, etc.
To conclude this short blog post, I will add that we need a cigar lounge. Boom.
