Lincoln County Commissioners have teamed up with the state to ensure that a number of condos and other dwellings that overlook Gleneden and Lincoln Beaches don’t fall into the ocean. The above picture speaks for itself. Natural ocean wave erosion of the cliffs couldn’t be more obvious. The county commissioners Wednesday approved a plan to “shore-up” the cliffs seaward of the buildings before they begin losing pieces of their homes and vacation rentals.
As a result, the county commission voted unanimously Wednesday to work with the state to begin installing huge boulders at the base of the cliffs, along with what’s called “rip-rap” on the cliff faces to stop their slow erosion and help save the buildings above.
From the looks of things, they better get busy.
