Coos Bay - City Government


The Coos Bay Urban Renewal Agency and McKay’s Market, LLC are partnering together to give the existing “The Bite's On” Tackle Shop and bottle drop structure a much-needed facelift.

The project includes replacing the existing wood siding with 'Pewter' colored Hardie-Plank siding and replacing the existing canopy with a 'Dark Brown' metal canopy and with trim the painted the same color. They also intend to pressure wash and reseal the existing aggregate panels on the north, east and south elevations.

The project is scheduled to begin in September and should be completed within two weeks. The project is expected is to cost $37,632. On August 6, the Coos Bay Urban Renewal Agency approved a Façade Improvement Grant in an amount up to $18,816, which is 50 percent of the projected cost.

The Façade Improvement Grant program is designed to help revitalize Coos Bay’s two Urban Renewal Districts, with improvements such as paint, awnings and other exterior enhancements. Eligible properties can receive as much as $25,000 in matching grants.

More information on the façade grant program can be found at
