Rental Information

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Events Center is not currently available for rentals of any kind. All scheduled events are cancelled.

The Oregon Health Authority is requiring venue operators to:

• Thoroughly clean all areas of gathering space prior to reopening after extended closure.

• Thoroughly clean the gathering space between events according to the cleaning and disinfection requirements.

• Use disinfectants that are included on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved list for the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 virus. No product will be labeled for COVID-19 yet, but many products will have a label or information available on their websites about their effectiveness for human coronavirus.

• Assign a sanitation attendant or attendants to frequently clean and disinfect work areas, high-traffic areas, and commonly touched surfaces in areas accessed by workers and attendees/participants.

• Assign a sanitation attendant or attendants to clean restrooms hourly during the event, and ensure adequate sanitary supplies (e.g., soap, toilet paper, 60-95% alcohol-content hand sanitizer) during all events. 

The City of Dayton is not able to meet all of these requirements at this time, so the Palmer Creek Lodge will remain closed for events until further notice. To read the Phase II Guidelines for Venues and Events, please click here.
