Merrill Downtown Hanging Baskets

Hanging baskets have recently been installed along Front Street in downtown Merrill.  The Project Merrill Team partnered with Farm Country Nursery to grow 20 hanging baskets for the downtown business corridor.  The Merrill Public Works Department installed metal brackets on downtown buildings for hanging the baskets.  The project was completely funded through local donations from business owners, community members, the City of Merrill, and the Merrill Lion’s Club.  Come take a walk along Front Street and enjoy the beautiful baskets.  Thank you to the Project Merrill Team, the City of Merrill, Farm Country Nursery, and to the many community members and organizations who donated to this project.

Merrill Wildlife Viewing Area Receives Grants

The City of Merrill was recently awarded a $16,000 Klamath County Tourism Grant and a $2,500 Jordan Cove-Pacific Connector Grant for construction of a new wildlife viewing area on Front Street in downtown Merrill along Lost River.  Construction will begin this summer.

The new area will provide wildlife viewing opportunities for community members and visitors on Lost River.  It will feature benches, picnic tables, information on area wildlife, along with information on wildlife viewing opportunities in the region.  There will also be information about Carl Barks, famous Disney artist who grew up in Merrill.  Congratulations to the City of Merrill and the Project Merrill Team!
