Lincoln City OR — The public is invited to comment on a proposal to close a 300-foot stretch of beach to motor vehicles near N. 35th Court in Lincoln City. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) will take comment at a public meeting in Salem on Oct. 20 at 6:30 p.m. in Room 124A in the North Mall Office Building, 725 Summer St.

Beaches in Lincoln County are closed to motor vehicles except for two 300-foot sections in Lincoln City that have been left open for parking. In the fall of 2015, OPRD received a petition to close one of those sections near N. 35th Court. On March 30, 2016, OPRD held a public meeting in Lincoln City to gather information on historical use, current use and potential problems with the beach being open at that location, as well as reasons why vehicle access is important at that location. After analyzing the information presented at the meeting, OPRD determined that a rulemaking action to close that section of beach was warranted.

Comments on this rulemaking can be made in person at the hearing and in writing until 5 p.m. Oct. 21. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission will consider all comments received by the deadline at the Nov. 16 commission meeting in Cannon Beach. Comments should be sent to: Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, Attn. Richard Walkoski, 725 Summer St NE, Suite C, Salem OR 97301; or e-mailed to [email protected].
