If you are looking to start or relocate a business, Lafayette may be the place for you! 

The City sits at the junction of several major transportation routes in the heart of Oregon's wine Country, just a short commute to the Portland metro area or to Salem.  Lafayette is a rapidly growing City with affordable commercial real estate and plenty of drop-in customer potential from the highways passing through town that makes it the perfect place to launch or grow your business.  The City Council has also recently approved an Urban Renewal District that will help revitalize the City's commercial core in the coming years.
