City Projects

Maupin is hoppin'. Here you can find information about projects happening within the City.

Nonprofit Grant Fund
Local nonprofits provide many valuable services and resources for our community. To recognize and aid these efforts, every year the City awards three $1,000 grants to local nonprofits. Any nonprofit located in Maupin may complete the form for a grant request. The requested funds must be used to benefit the people of Maupin. Applications will be reviewed by Council in February and recipients will be announced after our February Council Meeting. Nonprofits will receive the funds by check in March. The application is available here. Applications are due by February 15, 2023. If you need a hard copy of the form, a PDF can be emailed to you or you can pick up a hard copy at City Hall. If you have any questions about the grant funds or eligibility, please contact City Hall.
Electric Vehicle Charging Station
The City of Maupin and Wasco Electric partnered to bring the first EV Charging Station to Maupin. The Chargepoint station was installed at Maupin City Park and opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in October 2022.

In the spring of 2022, Wasco Electric is working with the City of Maupin to install a Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging Station in Maupin. Council has determined that an area near the City Park office would be the most beneficial location. The City will contribute $5,000 toward the $18-20,000 cost. Once it is installed and functioning, WEC will donate it to the City along with a full warranty for 5 years. Update: the EV Charger is up and running! Check it out at Maupin City Park.

Recycle Depot

Thanks to a $12,500 grant from Tri-County Hazardous Waste & Recycle, Maupin’s Recycle Depot is now open to the public. If you have questions about the depot, please call City Hall at 541-395-2698. If you have questions about how to recycle certain materials, please visit Find the location, hours of operation, and what materials are accepted at the Recycle Depot here.

Kaiser Park

In 2021, the City received a Destination Ready Grant of more than $35,000 from Travel Oregon to improve Kaiser Park, a public park in downtown Maupin. We have added irrigation, created an accessible walkway through the park from the sidewalks at Highway 197 to the public restrooms and Maupin Civic Center, and created a more accessible seating area with new picnic tables. There will also be a grape arbor (a request of the Kaiser family, who donated the land for the park) and a natural play structure when the project is completed in the spring of 2022.
