(Excerpted from the City’s website)
Councilor Vaughan filled a vacancy that occurred in May of 2011. Councilor Vaughan was later appointed by a unanimous vote of the current council, sworn in and sat down for his first council meeting June 7, 2011.
Councilor Vaughan has served on the City’s Design Review Committee, Parks Commission, and Coos County Weed Advisory Board forming a volunteer group to systematically eradicate invasive plant species in the community.
Councilor Vaughan earned a Landscape Architecture degree from the University of Oregon in 1992, and he has operated Mike Vaughan Landscape Design office since then designing residential & commercial landscapes as well as urban planning here in the community. The Vaughan family has been in the Coos Bay/North Bend community for over 100 years participating in civic and governmental affairs and the timber industry.
(Addition to City website) Mike has applied his design talents to assisting the ETPA in both our capital campaign and façade restoration. Mike designed, painted and updated our Egyptian Obelisk “fundraising thermometer” located in Coos Bay’s pedway (we prefer to call it The Egyptian Plaza). He also donated his talents to design the Broadway tile sidewalk we have installed at the Egyptian’s entrance.
