- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Lakeview, Oregon, just above the California/Nevada border, is exploding with activity. Hundreds of employees are flooding into town this summer. A natural gas pipeline, biomass plant, geothermal wells and solar fields are being built as we speak. A new taxpaper funded library is under constuction as is a new hospital wing. We are maxed out on services and housing, and new projects are in the works. A good contact person regarding energy is Ray Simms at the Lakeview town hall. His number is 541-947-2029.
Tourism is hot here too because of the Oregon State gemstone, the Sunstone, and pristine forests, lakes and deserts. Hang gliding off our basalt ridges is a favorite sport, bringing people in from around the world. A good contact person for tourism is Caro Sordorf at the Chamber of Commerce at 541-947-6040.
