Oceansiders Gail and Larry Bergevin brought their freshly-hired attorney to the March 3 Oceanside Neighborhood Association Meeting and folded his introduction into an update on the Green Crow Matter. In Gail’s comments to the group, it was clear that she and Larry more-than-agree with the Community Letter to County to deny a zone change to allow a commercial aggregate mining operation above the village of Oceanside and join the ranks of others prepared to make a stand to maintain the peace and quiet that is a key attraction for residents and visitors alike.
The long and the short of it on the Green Crow application status; Green Crow is later than they’d originally estimated ( in their January letter to the county) in submitting information to completed their application, making the April 12 hearing date still scheduled-but-tentative. According to Tillamook County community planner Lisa Phipps, Green Corw has been given a March 9 deadline to get their information in or count on their application moving off the April 12 agenda. Per Phipps the March 9 date would give the county and other interested parties to study the additional materials and include it and along with response in the staff report.
