West Linn is a city in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. Now a prosperous southern suburb of Portland, West Linn has a history of early development, prompted by the opportunity to harvest energy from the Willamette Falls. It was named after Senator Dr. Lewis Fields Linn of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, who had advocated the American occupation of Oregon as a counterclaim to the British. As of the 2000 census, the city had a population of 22,261. // A nickname is a short, clever, cute, derogatory, or otherwise substitute name for a person or things real name (for example, Bob, Rob, Robby, Robbie, Robi, Bobby, Rab, Bert, Bertie, Butch, Bobbers, Bobert, Beto, Bobadito, and Robban (in Sweden), are all short for Robert). ...

History

Major Robert Moore arrived in 1839 having been the senior member of the first attempt to create an American colony in Oregon, the Peoria Party. His title stems from his military service in the War of 1812, where he served in the Pennsylvania militia, possibly as a battlefield surgeon. Sometime after journeying around the Willamette Valley and Columbia Basin, Moore bought title to approx. 1,000 acres (4 km²) on the west side of Willamette Falls, across the Willamette River from Oregon City, from a local Native American chief named Wanax-ha, on which he platted a town known as the "Robbin's Nest" in early 1843. He also filed a provisional claim with the then government of the Oregon Country, not knowing if his unique transaction would be honored by the eventual governing laws. The later Territorial Legislature of Oregon voted to rename it Linn City on December 22, 1845 as a memorial to Senator Dr. Lewis Fields Linn for whom Linn County is also named. Dr. Linn was a neighbor and family friend of the Moores from their time as settlers in the early Missouri Territory. For many years Linn City was an intense political and commercial rival to the adjacent town of Oregon City, but it suffered a series of natural and manmade setbacks, including Moore's death in September of 1857. A great flood put an end to the pioneer settlement in November, 1861, dispersing many of the surviving family members throughout the Pacific Northwest. However, the seminal village site was later redeveloped as a locked canal and industrial complex decades later and the descendant companies still function to this day.

Recent events

In the early 2000s, West Linn politics were marked by conflict between no-growth advocates and their more moderate adversaries. From the November 2000 to the November 2004 elections, a no-growth advocate, David Dodds, held office as mayor and was supported by a city council having similar thinking. In the 2004 elections, however, this group was swept out of office as Mayor Norm King and former city manager Scott Burgess took control. With other like-minded city councilors they brought a more nuanced approach to city planning. They referred to the voters several measures allowing annexation of "island" properties within the city limits. These measures, though passed by significant margins by city voters, were controversial among no-growth advocates.


The Dodds-led city government also hired John Ellison as police chief. Chief Ellison was quickly embroiled in controversy as several police officers left the force and accepted employment elsewhere. In 2005, after two and a half years on the job, Mr. Ellison resigned.

A number of embezzlement cases [1] were discovered during the oversight of the King administration, with the largest involving the embezzlement of $1.4 million by the finance manager [2], who was on a first-name basis with the staff of the Spirit Mountain Casino, about 50 miles away. The origin of these cases dated back through several administrations. Although Oregon law requires that municipal accounts be audited yearly, the City of West Linn had discontinued these audits in 2002. Regular audits are only now being reinstated, after the completion of a forensic auditor's investigation [3] into the missing funds.

West Linn is located between the Willamette and Tualatin rivers with hills rising, sometimes rapidly, from the river banks. The area near the two rivers was, generally speaking, settled first, with later development climbing the more inland hills. Barrington Heights is an inland area of expansive mansions whereas the Willamette District, near the spot where the Tualatin river flows into the Willamette river, features older homes and commercial buildings, some of which are historic.
