Electric Vehicle Charging Station
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.
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 tricountyrecycle.com. Find the location, hours of operation, and what materials are accepted at the Recycle Depot here.
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.
