Lincoln County Commissioners voted 2-1 Monday to approve submitting an application for Phase One reopening to Gov. Kate Brown and Tuesday it was finalized and sent.

Lincoln County officials are uncertain when the Governor’s office will approve the application and said it’s possible the County could be asked to revise the application prior to approval. The Governor’s office will be contacting applicants if necessary if additional information is needed.

CHECK STATUS OF APPLICATION

According to Lincoln County, when the application is approved, Lincoln County will be allowed to enter a Phase One reopening. Guidelines for the reopening are provided on the Governor’s website.

Restaurants & Bars

Personal Services Providers

Malls

From Lincoln County Public Information Officer Casey Miller:

It’s also important to recognize the County and most local jurisdictions have a local ordinance – Order #3-23-85 Minimize the Effects of the COVID-19 Emergency – that currently has certain provisions for VRD/STR and lodging facilities that describe allowable use of those facilities through the end of May.

A third Joint meeting of all jurisdictions regarding Order #3-23-85 is scheduled for Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 3:00pm. Public input received and forthcoming agenda information for this meeting is located online. This meeting will be streamed through the City of Newport’s website.

Commissioner Claire Hall addressed the timeliness of Lincoln County’s application submission:

“We understand the communities frustration that our application was not submitted on Monday as previously planned. But it was important to us that everything in the application was in proper order to ensure the Governor would accept our application in full as submitted. We needed more time than expected to ensure their review process would accept our application outright.”

  1. Yes! Make vrd dwellings the absolute last to reopen! I really don’t like
    my “neighbors” at all.
    We were invaded shortly after putting our house on a lot that’d been in
    the family for decades.
    Back to this reopening, it’s become clear that this shutdown was virtually
    pointless, driven by the media, the original deaths in Washington state,
    and the assumption that we were all going to follow New York, has anyone noticed that New York is completely different from nearly every other city? Then politics inevitably got into the mix and it became a blame game- the blame- it’s China and the WHO, but disregarding that, career politicians and bureaucrats smelled prey and pounced.
    Now the innocent suffer the result. More people die from taking selfies
    in Lincoln County than have died from covid19, I’m all for banning smartphones…

  2. It will be very interesting to see what our crazy governor does this week being that she has no authority to do ” ANYTHING ” without the approval of our legislative body.
    All this is smoke and mirrors and should be the subject of the next episode of TWILIGHT
    ZONE. Makes no sense……..

  3. I agree Kevin, as to the why this is the kind of mindless policy You get with progressives. Once they have a story their sticking to it And damn the facts. Why keep pretending to be NY? Why keep pretending our hospitals are full? Why keep floating “could bes”? To keep Oregonians in fear so they can be controlled.
