Salem Hearings

Now is your opportunity to tell legislators to Protect the Oregon Beach Bill by reforming Measure 37 to exclude claims along our shoreline. The Joint Special Committee on Land Use Fairness is reviewing issues raised by Measure 37 and is currently accepting public comments at the Capitol on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5pm. Oregon’s sandy beaches are threatened by an unanticipated consequence of Measure 37 which may allow coastal property owners to file claims to develop beach dunes or recieve financial compensation for not doing so. If you’re interested in providing comments on this important issue, please contact Remember – it’s for the beach!!

Pacific HS Presents to OPAC

On Jan 29, Pacific High School students presented their Blue Water Task Force program to 60 + audience members at an Ocean Policy Advisory Council (OPAC) reception in Port Orford. The event was sponsored by the Port Orford Ocean Resource Team (POORT) and was attended by OPAC members, elected officials, agency staff, and community leaders. The presentation described how student water quality monitoring at Pacific High School is linked to the local fishing fleet’s ocean management efforts. With establishment of a lab at PHS, sampling in Port Orford has recently increased from 3 testing locations to 6, including 2-3 freshwater sites. The Port Orford Ocean Resource Team (POORT) has engaged as formal partners in this effort, and data collected is integrated into POORT’s nearshore monitoring program. Special thanks to Michael Smith (PHS) Christi Watson (PHS) and Leesa Cobb (POORT).

Protect the Oregon Beach Bill

In 1967, the historic Beach Bill was passed by the Oregon Legislature which protects public access and enjoyment of our ocean beaches. Unfortunately, these beach protections are now threatened by an unanticipated consequence of Measure 37 which may allow coastal property owners to file claims to develop beach dunes or recieve financial compensation for not doing so. On July 31, a beachfront property owner in Cannon Beach filed a Measure 37 claim to construct a motel on top of beach sand dunes long protected by the Beach Bill. Several Cannon Beach volunteers have helped develop written comments urging mayor/city council to deny claim. You can help protect the Oregon Beach Bill by letting your state representatives know that you care about public access to the shoreline and protection of Oregon’s sandy beaches. Send a letter or email urging your state representative to reform Measure 37 legislation to exempt our beaches. Legislative session starts Jan 8 so please do this SOON. Sample comments and representative info can be found in first comment to this post. Mahalo
