In 2023, the Oregon City Council established the Public Art Mural Program to encourage the addition of murals in the community and to provide a set of guidelines for doing so.

Those wishing to install a mural in the City of Oregon should review the mural ordinance (28.14.010 Murals) and complete a Mural Application to obtain a permit.
