Roads End residents sound off on annexation issues raised by Lincoln City

Roads End, to be annexed into Lincoln City?

Lincoln City officials have received 22.4% of the surveys they mailed to Roads End property owners, asking about their priorities in the event they are annexed into the city. The long running debate has turned sometimes quite contentious before the city council as residents claim like the way things are, or as others have characterized it, “getting high quality city services as lower county costs.” Roads End is immediately outside the city’s northern city limit and thereby have been enjoying city grade services while paying lower property taxes than those living inside the city limits. Many Roads End residents believe they already provide plenty of tax revenues to the city other than property taxes, and point to the fact they pay twice as much for water as in-city residents.

A survey was mailed out by the city to Roads End property owners asking them how they feel about city services like water, police, street maintenance, zoning protections and Vacation Rental Dwelling regulations. Of the 22% who returned the surveys 81% said having a permanent supply of water was important, having more comprehensive police protection was cited by 73% as important, a fifty percent reduction in their waters bills came in at 82%, street maintenance at 79%, protective land use zoning at 74% and regulating vacation rental dwellings was cited by 58% of respondents as important.

City Manager David Hawker will tell his city council tonight that there was a separate direct mail campaign to the entire area launched by a group of people who oppose annexation. Hawker said the rate of survey return indicates that it was effective to some extent and that it’s unfortunate that so many potential respondents chose not to fill out the surveys. Hawker wrote in his report:

“This is truly unfortunate, as the City may well annex Roads End in the not too distant future, and the more we know about the wishes of the residents and owners, the better we can serve them. While some services are automatic (like police protection and half the utility bill), others are based on decisions yet to be made. This would include how much to invest in street maintenance, and when to begin consideration of city rather than county zoning. Some aspects of the VRD issue may well be decided for Roads End in advance of annexation.”

The city council will take up the matter Monday evening, 6pm, at Lincoln City City Hall, 3rd floor.

Former Governor/Senator Mark Hatfield has died…

Former Governor and U.S. Senator Mark Hatfield, dead at 89

Former Oregon Governor and U.S. Senator, and a frequent critic of the size of the U.S. Military has died in Portland following a long illness. The story is in the Oregonian. Click here.

Senator Jeff Merkley’s statement at passing of former Senator Hatfield:

Merkley Statement on the Passing of Senator Mark Hatfield

Portland – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley released the following statement on the passing of former Governor and Senator Mark O. Hatfield of Oregon.

“I am deeply saddened to hear about Senator Hatfield’s death. “Senator Hatfield took courageous positions of conscience — from opposing the Vietnam War to advocating for the abolition of the death penalty – in the face of substantial political opposition. He inspired many to public service, encouraging them to work to do what is right rather than what is convenient or popular.
“Senator Hatfield played an enormous role in making Oregon what it is today. His hands were at work in the development of so many institutions we treasure as Oregonians, from the Oregon Health and Sciences University, to the Mark Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, to the Opal Creek Wilderness, to name just a few. He should also be remembered, in this age of bitter partisanship, for his bipartisan and gracious diplomacy.

I have greatly admired Senator Hatfield since I had the chance to be one of the hundreds of interns he hosted over his decades of public service. Tonight, a great man has passed from among us and we will miss him greatly. Mary and I will be holding his wife and partner Antoinette and his family in our prayers.

Sen. Jeff Merkley

——————————————–

Statement from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden:

“Oregon has lost a great son. The United States Senate has lost of one of its former giants. The nation has lost a man who represented honesty and decency. And I have lost a very good friend.

Senator Hatfield was a colleague and friend to many who still serve in the United States Senate and he was a hero to a generation of Oregonians who came to admire him for his independence and principles. We will remember him as someone who was universally respected and whose word was his bond.

Senator Hatfield was never one to be driven by party affiliation or ideological litmus tests. He was religious but not intolerant. Idealistic but not naïve. A politician but not partisan. He was willing to stand alone, but never one to grandstand.

I know that all Oregonians join me in offering condolences to his wife, Antoinette, and his four children, Elizabeth, Mark Jr., Theresa and Visko.”
