Newberg Oregon 1st Time Home Buyer Financing Newberg is a wonderful place to live. In close proximity to Portland, the mountains, the coast , wine country, among others. Newberg is also very attractive for 1st Time Home Buyers. While one of Yamhill county's largest towns, Newberg is still small enough to qualify for financing under the USDA Guaranteed Rural Home Loan program. This great program provides for 100% financing based on the appraised price, not the purchase price. This means that if a property appraises for more then the purchase price, the difference can be used to help offset closing costs. Sellers can also contribute up to 6% of the sales price to help cover closing costs. This allows many 1st Time home buyers to get into a home with little or no money down. There are inco...

This is the latest update regarding the Bypass:  A big thanks to the McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce for keeping us informed! A note from our President...You've no doubt heard by now that a transportation bill with specific funding in the amount of $192 million for Phase I of the Newberg/Dundee Bypass was forwarded to the House of Representatives last Friday afternoon following a unanimous vote of the Joint Committee on Transportation.  All of our region's legislators deserve our heartfelt thanks, none more so however than Representative Jim Weidner, a member of the Joint Committee who although philosophically opposed to raising taxes and fees voiced his support of the bill at this critical juncture.  The bill now moves to the House floor for deliberation and a subsequent vote whic...

On May 3, 2009 the Newberg Fire Department will host the annual pancake breakfast.   In light of the current economic conditions and knowing some people in the community are hurting the organizers didn't feel it was appropriate to raise the price of admission and therefore, prices will remain the same as last year: $6.00 for Adults, $4.00 for seniors, $3.00 for children ages 6-13 and free for those under 6 years of age. Community businesses are doing their part to contribute this year, helping make the fund-raising event even more affordable for the fire department. Lil Cooperstown Pub & Grill will provide the pancake mix, Marion County-based Wilcox Farms will provide the shelled eggs, the propane is provided by Blue Flame Gas and the coffee by Caravan Coffee. As always, the menu will o...

The Newberg High School dropout rate for 2007-08 was 2.93% down from 5.2 percent the previous year.  This is the lowest rate since statewide reporting began in 1991. The 2007-08 dropout rate reflects the first year Newberg students were in small schools; rates from previous years reflected a comprehensive high school. Principals and counselors attribute the decline in the number of dropouts to personalization in small schools.  School Principal Carol Campbell states; "small school students are known well and we track individual students who are at risk."  She adds that relationships formed with school staff members contribute to interventions with students before they drop out.  High school students are also benefiting from improved options for credit recovery and alternative school pro...
