A Lincoln County Jail work crew, in conjunction with the Newport Police Department, combined efforts to clean up “Safe Haven Hill” located at the south end of the Yaquina Bay Bridge. There were several abandoned homeless camps on the site. A substantial amount of garbage, tents, tarps, make shift structures and other waste was strewn over the area.

The work crew spent approximately 2 1/2 hours dismantling and removing the debris and placing it into a large dumpster for disposal.

Safe Haven Hill was designated several years ago by Newport and Lincoln County officials as a “Tsunami Safe Zone” for local citizens and workers as an evacuation point in the event of a Tsunami. The top of the hill will be modified as part of a larger effort to accommodate thousands of persons who will eventually have to flee a tsunami. Those additional improvements will be made as appropriate funding becomes available.
