Donald Beautification Group

The Donald Beautification Group (DBG) is comprised of volunteer residents and business members in Donald.

It is the DBG's mission to keep Donald a great place for families to live, friends to visit and businesses to thrive. 

Current Projects
  • The City received a grant from the                      Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation. The DBG is working on the park site plans, selecting play equipment and a permanent restroom.

  • The DBG is beginning to work on membership requirements to join the Oregon Main Street program. 

  • The DBG is working on the design of a new City of Donald welcome sign to be presented to the City Council. Thank you to GK Machine for the donation of design hours and materials. 

Past Projects
  • In 2017 the DBG conducted a survey as part of an effort to develop a Community Beautification Plan. The results of that survey were used to help determine the best approach for improving and beautifying the downtown area. Click the button below to view the survey results.

The City is located 24 miles south of Portland and 27 miles north of Salem in the stunning Willamette Valley. Champoeg State Heritage Park, which is one of the State of Oregon’s most notable landmarks, is just four miles west. Six miles east of town is Willamette Aviation, Oregon’s third busiest airport. Donald’s unique location provides easy access to some of Oregon’s biggest cities and attractions while remaining a small rural community.
