Lincoln County Commissioners have found a way to save some cliff-imperiled multi-million dollar homes and other facilities in Gleneden Beach. County Commissioners convinced state officials to transform a set of Oregon laws that will allow the rehabilitation of shore-eroded cliffs that the homes over-look. Those facilities include Searidge Condominiums, Worldmark Gleneden Resort and other homes owned by several other families.
Under regular state law the homes and resorts might have been forced to be abandoned due to the sea eroding the cliffs. But a state law was modified to strengthen the hillsides with lots of dirt fill and huge boulders to ensure that no structure falls down onto the beach below. A formal approval of the arrangement will be part of the County Commission’s regular meeting this coming Wednesday when further details surrounding the issue will be forthcoming.
