The Curry Organizers are weighing in on the right to access the beach at the end of Memory Lane in Brookings, Oregon. If you have ever gone through the pedestrian gate at the end of Memory Lane then you know how awesome the beach is north of the jetties. Even if you haven’t but are concerned with the idea that you may not ever get the opportunity to go down to that beach then write to the city of Brookings and let them know that you support them in their fight to keep the beach access open.
What is happening is some of the folks that live down past the gate are concerned with the public littering and burning fires down at the north jetty beach. They are building a new gate and don’t want to put another pedestrian gate in that would allow the rest of us access to a wonderful stretch of beach at Chetco Cove. If you haven’t been there it’s worth the short walk past the gate and you might want to do it now just in case you don’t get another chance.
The Curry Organizers are going to draw up a simple plan of quarterly beach cleanups for the community to organize around to at least dispel the argument about the littering problem. If the concerned home owners don’t accept the cleanup plan then we know they just don’t want any of the public that doesn’t live behind the gate to enjoy a classic piece of Oregon beach and that’s plain wrong.
So write your letters and let the city know your concerned. Tell them you have been down to that beach, let them know that you would like to be able to continue to access that beach and that you are in support of the city and their fight to allow beach access at Memory Lane. See you on the beach,
