Toledo, situated on a bend of the Yaquina River and surrounded by wooded hills, is just seven miles inland from the Central Oregon Coast and the only inland coastal community with a deep water channel. The historic town of 3,400 residents cascades over the hillsides to the river. Toledo is one of the few cities in Oregon which has a downtown on a city street, not on a throughway or highway. Toledo’s Main Street retains its historical flavor with the waterfront and moored fishing vessels visible at the south end of the street. When the winds start to blow on the beach, Toledo is often warm and sunny with a small town atmosphere and beautiful river, estuary, and rural vistas. Antique shops, art galleries, gift shops selling the work of local crafters, quilters, the History Center, the Rail Road Museum and restaurants make Toledo an interesting place to visit.
The Mission of the Toledo City Government is to provide efficient and necessary public services that protect and enhance the quality of life in Toledo, now and in the future, as determined by our citizens, the law and available economic resources.
