Depoe Bay reviews new sidewalks along 101 and down to the city park, and Tsunami sirens on their minds
Depoe Bay City Councilors decided this week it would be a good idea to apply for a $400,000 grant from ODOT to put in sidewalks from the bridge south to Shell, and then further the sidewalk down hill to the city park on the west side of the highway. If the city is awarded the grant, its urban renewal agency would have to kick in roughly $42,000.
So, the council awaits the decision from ODOT whether they get the money.
And, the city council this week was watching a group of tsunami siren techies march around town, looking at that hill and that building, that open area and this harbor, trying to figure out where tsunami sirens ought to be installed and how loud they should be. The council expects to hear back from the techies with some ideas of what kind of tsunami sirens Depoe Bay actually needs and at what cost.
