COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. — The city of Cottage Grove has shut down the Cottage Grove Speedway.
City leaders say the race track violated several city codes and didn’t meet conditions set back in April.
Howard Schesser, Cottage Grove community development director, said the city had given the speedway until May to submit information that the city needed.
The information Cottage Grove requested from the race track included:
-Building permit applications: The city now has them but needs additional information;
-An engineer’s drawing of a water line extension and sewer line extension;
-Proof that the speedway applied to the Department of State Lands and the Corps of Engineers for approval to work in the Coast Fork of the Willamette River, to replace and enlarge a culvert for a storm system;
-Drawings of the design and location of a secondary access road for emergency response;
-Quarterly attendance records;
-Documents to allow conservation and storm drainage easements.
The track will be closed until the city’s requirements are met.
The season usually wraps up in October.
