Enterprise funds projects district attorney


Enterprise gave $2,800 for the Rural Development Action Team visit and decided to enter into a contract with a company to water the trees downtown.

The action happened during an Enterprise City Council meeting held Tuesday afternoon.

The RDAT is bringing award-winning urban designer Peter Batchelor and a group of hand-picked experts to develop a plan to revitalize the economy of Wallowa County.

"We funded it because we think that it needs to happen to make this county move onwards and upwards," said Irving Nuss Jr., Enterprise mayor. "So we're behind it."

The contract to water downtown Enterprise's trees will be with Joseph-based Eastern Oregon Landscaping.

The contract will be done in phases as funding allows, Nuss said, beginning in February.

Batchelor will return in the fall with experts in ranch economics, land use management, forest and agriculture management and land use legislation to write the economic plan.

Batchelor said the community needed to raise $40,000 in addition to airfare, meals and lodging for the experts to make the development plan happen.
