Attention: local musicians & singers, and people who like to listen and dance to live music.
We have the opportunity right now to provide feedback about our priorities regarding use of Urban Renewal funds for developing South Beach. The City of Newport has prepared an online survey asking us to prioritize a wide range of options including retail stores, restaurants, gas stations, repair shops, playgrounds, trails, lodging, etc., but nowhere does it mention venues that could host live music and dancing. I believe the Newport area is in dire need of places where bands can perform and where people have room to dance to them. This is an opportunity to WRITE IN the need for music venues in Question #6 under OTHER, and for Question #8.
Information about the South Beach Refinement Plan, and the survey, is on the City of Newport website here: https://www.newportoregon.gov/dept/cdd/sbopenhouse.asp
A direct link to the survey is here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DLMQRVQ
The survey has 13 questions and takes about 7 minutes to complete. Name and email are optional.
Please let your voice be heard. Write in the need for live music venues.
