From the Chamber of Commerce:
"The Bay Area, consisting of Coos Bay, North Bend and
Charleston, is truly unique. Our business and professional
people accentuate individuality and character. Our retailers
strike a balance between distinctively-local shops and nationally-known
chains. One of our crown jewels is Southwestern Oregon Community
College. The Bay Area is a nest for young families to grow
in and a haven for retirees to experience living in the unspoiled
beauty that is Oregon's Bay Area. Whether a first time visitor,
prospective new resident or business owner considering relocation,
once you come here, you will never want to leave."
