    The Hollering Place Background


    • From time immemorial, the Hollering Place (Hanisiich) was a historical Coos Tribal village site on the banks of the river Coos, Oregon. It was the first European Settlement, and became a busy commercial location based on the thriving logging industry in the area. Empire City was a thriving port community and the first county seat of Coos County, Oregon. When the county seat eventually relocated to the City of Coquille, Empire City or simply Empire, as it is now known, was reduced to just a struggling unincorporated part of the City of Coos Bay. However, by 1998, a citizen-led the effort to restore Empire began. In response, the City of Coos Bay Urban Renewal Agency bought the Hollering Place, and in 2008, the Hollering Place Master Plan was developed and adopted to help guide development.

    • The Confederated Tribes, an integral part of this community, sought to work with the City of Coos Bay to restore the Hollering Place site and, by extension, Empire.

    • In 2014, CTCLUSI responded to a RFQ (Request for Quotation) to develop the Hollering Place

    • In March of 2018, CTCLUSI and the City signed a DDA (Disposition and Development Agreement) to collaborate on the redevelopment of The Hollering Place as a way to honor the past and provide economic and environmental benefits for the future generations of the area. The DDA Obligates the Agency to sell the Hollering Place property to the Tribes for the Tribes to build a destination-caliber resort with a cultural heritage museum and promenade from bluff-top to the beach after Tribes have completed specific due diligence items and obtained third-party financing, among other matters.
