WELCOME 2014 & THE NEW CITY WEBSITE

We are excited to launch our new website. Please spend some time looking around. Athena is a small, unique community with a population of 1125 citizens in northeastern Oregon. Nestled against the historic Blue Mountains, just 18 miles from Pendleton, Oregon, and 22 miles to Walla Walla, Washington lays the city of Athena.

May 2014 bring wonderful joy into your lives!


CITY GETS NEW STREET IN 2013!

Athena is proud to be the recipient of the Oregon Department of Transportation grant in the amount of $2.2 million dollars.  Of that, $300,000 was provided through the Oregon Jobs, and Transportation Act (JTA).  New sidewalks, sewer/freshwater infrastructure improvements, ADA ramps, and bike lanes were all achieved in this project along with a new main street.

ATHENA PARTICIPATES IN EARTH DAY CELEBRATION AND WETLAND RIBBON CUTTING

Earth Day was celebrated at the City of Athena with the opening of the wetlands. Students from the area school also participated by hanging bird houses and planting of trees. This was in conjunction of the USDA and DEQ. The wetlands were created to provide an area to process treated effluent from the wastewater plant in Athena. As the water moves through the series of wetlands (bacteria eating ponds), wetland plants remove remaining nutrients. The water discharged from the system into Pine Creek is free of contaminants, ensuring water quality and the health of in-stream habitats. For more information stop by City Hall.
