'OPEN FOR BUSINESS TOUR' TO TAKE PLACE IN THE DALLES
 
 
(THE DALLES ) -- The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce is planning to host the 'Open for Business Tour' on Saturday, June 29th from 10:00am-2:00pm. A total of 9 buildings will be a part of this tour.
 
The Dalles is a rural town in the Columbia Gorge region which services approximately 80,000 people. This town has positive ambitions as it aims to reduce some of its empty buildings and store fronts.  A few community members belonging to various community organizations such as the Port of The Dalles, The Dalles Main Street Committee, The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce, and The Dalles Small Business Development Center (SBDC) met to address the issue of vacant buildings/store fronts. This coalition of community members has decided to put together an ‘Open for Business Tour' of the buildings that are available for purchase or lease in the Downtown area.
 
Locations that will be a part of the tour on June 29th are: Matthew Building, Honald Building,

BUSINESS 2
 
Morin Building, Tony's Town & Country Building, Jerry Jeffers Building, Craig's Office Supply
Building, Commodore, Ice House, Turner's Upstairs, and Old Lilo's Restaurant. A map of the tour along with building addresses and locations will be available for pick up at 9:30am on Saturday, June 29th at The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce 404 West 2nd Street, The Dalles, OR 97058 or at any of the buildings on the tour.
 
Lisa Farquharson, President/CEO of The Dalles Area Chamber of  Commerce would like to see a mix of business come to the Downtown area. "We're inviting a variety of businesses, real estate agents, and developers." Lisa hopes that the invitees see the potential in The Dalles.
 
Farquharson got the inspiration to do the 'Open for Business Tour' based off of a concept that the Webster City Chamber in Iowa developed. The 'Open for Business Tour' aims to bring some life back to the Downtown area.  Looking to re-purpose some buildings, Farquharson adds "We're open for all types of opportunities."
 
A fellow collaborator on the 'Open for Business Tour' Mary Merrill, Director of  the Small Business Development Center at the Columbia Gorge Community College contacted the City regarding Vertical Housing in Downtown The Dalles and aspects that this subject will go before City Council on July 22, 2013. " It would be great to see an addition of housing units added to our Downtown area, there's an influx of professionals and local residents who like the convenience and ambiance of living Downtown" says Merrill.

BUILDING 3
 
The Dalles is located in the scenic Columbia Gorge Region and is the hub of Skamania, Klickitat,
Hood River, Wasco, and Sherman Counties. The Gorge and The Dalles has seen an influx of tech
professionals and organizations locate and take root in the region. Most notably Google opened a
data center in The Dalles in 2006 employing 80 people.
 
The majority of the sites on tour feature pre-war buildings. David Adams owner of Adams Design Center says, "these building are architecturally beautiful and represent the cultural history of The Dalles.  I'm very eager to see these building put back to use."
 
Interested buyers and leasers will have the opportunity to see the buildings and hear the history of them from a Community Champion. Community Champions are volunteers who will assist with conducting the tour and will serve as tour guides. Realtors and or a building representative will be present in each buildings on the tour to answer any questions viewers may have. The tour will end with a simple reception for more Q & A and a refreshment mixer.
