West Linn DUI Lawyers
West Linn is a southern suburb in Clackamas County, Oregon with Oregon City and Lake Oswego as neighboring communities. With Portland just 25 minutes away, it’s growing population serves over 24,000 residents within 8.06 square miles. While the town was originally called Linn City after Senator Lewis F. Linn of Missouri, it was later changed to West Oregon City, with Oregon City being on the east side of the river. In the early 1900’s however, the two city names West Oregon City and Linn City were simply merged and became “West Linn”. While there is no North, South or East Linn, the name has remained the same.
The community motto is “City of Hills, Trees, and Rivers”, so while the busier metropolitan area in Portland is close, citizens enjoy the views and offerings of the larger outdoor areas. In fact, there are over 600 acres of park land which includes 28 parks, 2 boat ramps, 1 nature preserve, and 0.5 miles of river area with access to the Willamette and Tualatin rivers. The suburb also features 8 miles of designated bike lanes.
West Linn has received several community awards, the latest being number 38 of Money Magazine’s 2015 Best Places to Live. It was also recognized as CNN/Money Magazine’s 69th Best Place to Live in 2011, with The City of Sherwood as the only other Oregon city to make the listing at number 100. The favorable ranking was received because the community was cited for having several independent restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques in the historic downtown area. It was also recognized for hosting “quirky annual traditions” such as the Old Time Fair and the Ugly Sweater Dash. Last, the community was named as the 2012 Tree City USA community by the Arbor Day Foundation for it’s commitment to urban forestry.
