The City of Moro has been awarded $250,000.00 in grant funding from ODOT's Small City Allotment Program. These grant funds do not require matching fund contributions.
The proposed project aims to replace 1,425 linear feet of targeted sidewalks in the Residential zoned area of Moro's City Limits. This grant application was developed using a sidewalk inventory, designed by The City of Moro, Department of Public Works. The sidewalk inventory was used to identify hazardous sidewalk conditions that posed the greatest risk of tripping hazard and then considered the number of residential homes that would benefit from such improvements.
The City of Moro was one of 23 candidates selected out of the 69 applicants who applied for project funding. Requested funds totaled over $16.3 million and only $5.7 million in grant funds were awarded.

The City of Moro is located in the high-rolling plateau area of Sherman County, twenty miles south of the Columbia River and at an elevation of 1,799 feet. It is one of the larger small cities along U.S. Highway 97. Moro sits as the County Seat since the separation of Sherman from Wasco County in 1889.
Moro is primarily a residential community with a current population estimate of 380.
The Dalles is 42 miles distant and the nearest metropolitan areas are Portland to the west, Redmond/Bend area to the south and Pendleton to the east.
Because of the City's natural setting between the Deschutes and John Day Rivers and the rural atmosphere, people from more urban areas are now being attracted to Moro for retirement and recreational home sites.
With its store, restaurant, motel facilities, and agricultural-related business Moro is able to function as an agricultural service center, supplying residents and tourists with goods and services.
