City of Warrenton, Oregon

Mayor Henry Balensifer

Message from the Mayor:

Welcome to Warrenton! I invite you to experience all that we have to offer. With our just over 5,500 residents, we are the pinnacle of Oregon. Nestled between the Columbia River, Pacific Ocean and Youngs Bay, you cannot get further northwest in Oregon than Warrenton.

We have the region’s largest commercial district and airport, a large industrial base, and more waterfront trails than any other city in the north coast. Did I mention we also have the largest state park by campsites in Oregon?

In Warrenton, you can go from a sprawling commercial district to a serene waterfront in a minute. Our trails system is unlike any other in the region. We have four waterfronts, all of which you can access. The downtown trails follow the Skipanon River, our northern trails follow the Columbia River, our airport trail follows Youngs Bay and there are miles of trails along the Pacific Ocean.

The business climate is great here too! Regionally, Warrenton has become a name synonymous with opportunity. Some of the lowest taxes in the region coupled with available land has spurned a mass of developments that add to our robust housing, dining and shopping options. Warrenton is the region’s leader in housing and commercial development, and we are a leading outdoor recreation hub as well.

If you’re a visitor—thank you for checking us out. If you’re a resident or a business owner, thank you for choosing Warrenton—you are the reason our city is great.
