Roads End Challenges Annexation

After the Lincoln City City Council formally decided to officially annex the Roads End area into the city December 10th, the Roads End Water District began their legal challenge.  The group has filed an appeal to the state Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA).

LUBA Appeal:
The text of the appeal has not yet been published but the title describes it as an appeal of an ordinance annexing the Roads End area to the City of Lincoln City. Interested parties can search the LUBA website for Roads End Water District v. City of Lincoln City, LUBA No. 2012-101, which was filed December 28, 2012.

Coffee on the Point

February 16, 2013, 10:00 to Noon

glass-coffee-mugsIt’s a new year and life on the lake is running at a little slower pace.  It is a little rarer to wave at a friend zooming by in their boat or engage in a neighborly conversation during that morning walk.  With that in mind, we thought that we would invite you to another, “Coffee on the Point”.

Nothing fancy just stop by on Saturday February 16th between 10:00am and noon for a cup of coffee and a sweet treat and say hello to a few of your neighbors.  We have had so much fun with Potluck on the Point that a little get together a few times during the year doesn’t seem like such a bad idea.  The coffee will be at Mitch and Dana Moore’s; the A-frame at 2929 NE Loop Drive on Sand Point. Come on by!

2012 Potluck on the Point

What a Great Night We Had

A great group came out Saturday, August 4th for the Fourth Annual Potluck on the Point.

Attendees spent the evening visiting with their neighbors while enjoying great food.  It was really fun especially the ability to socialize with those you already knew as well as having the chance to make new acquaintances.

Mother Nature provided us perhaps the nicest day of the summer.  Visit our photo album to get a little taste of the event.    We plan to continue the Potluck; we have selected the first Saturday in August every year. So mark your calendar for August 3rd, 2013 and plan on a fun evening.

Devils Lake Revivial

Including a Two-Ton Creature

The Devils Lake Revival took place Saturday August 4th from 10-2pm at Regatta Grounds. The event included: educational booths, a variety of kids activities, pontoon boat tours, stand up paddle board lessons/demos, kayak demos/tours, live music, food, veggie and seafood options available, prizes, including a kayak, in water rescue demonstration, and a beach safety presentation.

Also part of this year’s event was the unveiling of a two-ton, 13-foot-high sculpture of a lake creature. Sculptors Heidi Erickson and Doug Kroger spent more than two years crafting the towering metal sculpture. It is eighteen feet long, and made from more than 90 percent recycled metal and rubber retread material.  Take a moment and visit the creature, it’s quite a sight.

Lincoln City Meetings Now Stream

People interested in the decisions made by our local government now have a new tool to help them stay informed.  The City began using a new system in its June 25 Counsel meeting that streams the feed seen on Charter Channel 4 over the internet.  During the meeting the stream is live and can be viewed by anyone with an internet connection.  Once the meeting has concluded the material is available on an on-demand basis.  City Manager David Hawker indicated that each meeting will be available for months.  In addition to the City Council, the Planning Commission and the Urban Renewal Agency meetings will be available.  No word on whether the DLWID will be allowed to upgrade their broadcasts to the new system.  To view footage from the meetings, go to www.lincolncity.org and follow the link on the left side of the page for Council and Planning Commission Video.
