Redevelopment of industrial site could be in the works

Frank Trombetta might just have the sweetest view in Corvallis.

From his office window, the president of Evanite Fiber Corp. can gaze across a green expanse of lawn at the confluence of the Marys and Willamette rivers, a hidden pocket of natural serenity where herons roost and ospreys swoop.

"Is that gorgeous property or what?" Trombetta asks. "I just have an awful hard time believing there's a more beautiful site anywhere in the state than right here."

Though Evanite is only a stone’s throw from downtown, few local residents have ever enjoyed the view from Trombetta's window. The 35-acre riverfront property has been home to a succession of industrial plants since the earliest days of Corvallis.
