SAFETY TIPS FOR INDEPENDENCE DAY IN SEASIDE, OREGON - June 30, 2020

The City of Seaside encourages everyone to enjoy this unique Independence Day holiday safely. While our annual July 4th festivities and fireworks are canceled due to COVID-19 precautions, Seaside is in Phase 2 of Oregon’s reopening framework. To ensure locals and visitors have a good experience, here are six tips to keep in mind.

TIP 1: Bring Masks and Social Distance. Stay at least six feet from those outside your party and wear a mask when downtown, when visiting indoor spaces open to the public or in close proximity to others. Masks have been shown to reduce risk of contagion for yourself and others. If you’re sick, please stay home.

TIP 2: Use Only Legal Oregon Fireworks. Illegal fireworks explode, behave in an uncontrollable and unpredictable manner, eject balls of fire, or travel more than six feet on the ground or one foot into the air.

TIP 3: Share The Beach. and keep your area safe for everyone. No tents on the beach, avoid digging large fire pits (nothing larger than three feet in length, width or depth), and pallets are not allowed in any circumstance as they litter the sand with hidden nails and other sharp metal objects. Please keep fires at least 50 feet from the beach grass and do not start fires in drift wood.

TIP 4: Stash Your Trash. Use the public garbage receptacles posted at entry points to the beach along the Promenade. 

TIP 5: Come Prepared. Seaside restaurants are a great option for meals during your visit – dine-in options are limited, take-out is plentiful – but consider bringing all groceries with you to lessen the burden on our local supply chains, which residents depend on.

TIP 6: Be Responsible. Police, fire, and city officials work around the clock to keep services in town running as smooth as possible with the large numbers of holiday visitors. If you need assistance with a non-emergency or want to report something, don’t hesitate to contact authorities at (503) 738-6311. If you see something, please say something. 

On behalf of Seaside’s City Council and public safety officials, Seaside thanks you for spending Independence Day with us.

Citizens and businesses that cannot attend in person, or do not wish to attend, can have public comment considered by submitting their comments in writing in one of two ways. First, by submitting copy via email to publiccomment@cityofseaside.us or by dropping off their written comment to city hall no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, June 29, 2020.

Whereas, leaders and citizens of our nation are afforded the privilege of prayer, affirming our spiritual heritage and the principles upon which our nation was founded; and

Whereas, recognizing the love and power of God, we unite with fellow citizens to exercise the freedom we have to gather in prayer with thankfulness while seeking guidance, provision, protection, and purpose for the benefit of every individual and our state as a whole; and

Whereas, we specifically thank God for those who defend our freedoms and ask for peace throughout our state, nation, and world;

Now, Therefore, I, Jay Barber, Mayor of the City of Seaside, do hereby proclaim, May 7, 2020, as:  

 

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER

 

throughout the City of Seaside and I commend this observance to all of our citizens.     

IN WITNESS THEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the City of Seaside to be affixed this 7th day of May, 2020.

Governor Kate Brown Tells Oregonians to Stay Home but Doesn’t Issue Order - Grocery shopping, visits to the pharmacy and other critical business will still be allowed.

Governor. Kate Brown tonight urged Oregonians to stay home in order to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. But she stopped short of issuing a statewide order compelling them to do so. For now, Brown announced a policy, called "Stay Home, Stay Healthy." At the beginning of the press conference, the governor announced it would be "an order and a public awareness campaign. “She laid the groundwork for asking Oregonians to make additional sacrifices. "This is a very bitter pill to swallow," said Brown, acknowledging that social distancing will represent a hardship for many. "At this point in time, I am not planning an additional statewide order or directive," she said. A statewide order of this type has now been issued in California, Illinois and New York. It would require most of them to stay at home when they don't need to be out of the house to get food and gas or exercise. Some people, who work in businesses deemed essential, would be allowed to commute to work. Which businesses are essential in Oregon are still being determined if there is to be an order.

Medical groups, including the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems and the Oregon Public Health Association and OHSU, have called for officials to order Oregonians to shelter in place, calling out the policy, the most aggressive states have adopted.


 

Wednesday, March 18, 2020 - Statement from Mayor Jay Barber

Re: Response to COVID-19

It is at time like these that I am so thankful to live in a community like Seaside!  This is a community that knows how to care for one another and make the best of a difficult and challenging situation.  This is a reminder of how neighbors pulled together after the storm of 2007 when city and utility services were out for days.  Portable generators came out and people cooked meals on barbeques for their neighbors and friends.

This is such a time. 

We are blessed at this time to have no recorded cases of COVID-19 in Clatsop County or in Seaside.  That fact underscores the need for all of us to radically adhere to the CDC guidelines for Social Distancing, handwashing etc. and especially, stay at home if you are sick and avoid close contact with people who are sick.

QUESTIONS:

I have been asked by a number of people about why Seaside has not declared State of Emergency since Clatsop County and neighboring Astoria have done so.  When a city declares an emergency they are in need of additional authority.  At this time the city is dealing with all of the presenting issues well.  If a COVID-19 case is declared in the County/City we will re-evaluate our position at that time.

What about City business?  The City Manager, in consultation with the Mayor and Council, has cancelled all Committees and Commissions of the City through the end of March and at that time consideration will be given to extending the cancellations as needed.

The Seaside Public Library and Fire Department offices are closed to the public as the staff continues to work and be available.

The Police Department offices are closed to the public until further notice.  911 calls are staffed and the Department can be reached on the non-emergency line at 503 738-6311.  Patrols continue as usual.

All currently scheduled conferences and conventions at the Seaside Civic and Convention Center have been cancelled for several weeks.

CITY BUSINESS

The business of the city must go on during a crisis like this, for that reason the scheduled meeting of the City Council on March 23 will be held under unusual circumstances.  Social Distancing will be observed and I am urging that unless you have current business on the agenda that you not attend this meeting.

At this time, City Hall continues to be open for inquiries or other business to the walk-up counter, observing Social Distancing.  This may change and if so notice will be given.

IN THE MEANTIME

As we all know, this crisis is having and will have a significant impact on the businesses in our city.  Eating establishments are now closed to “dining in” service but many are providing take-out and some are even providing delivery service.  Galleries and artists are being impacted. I URGE YOU TO PATRONIZE OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES AS MUCH AS YOU CAN during this time. (A list of these dining services is available on the Seaside Chamber website). 

The Seaside Providence Hospital is also operating at full strength. Concerns or questions regarding the hospital should be directed to the hospital.

This crisis is also impacting all of our tourist oriented business (hotels, shops and amusement centers, etc.) so be sensitive and aware that many in our community will be going without a paycheck and property/shop owners will be suffering financial loss.

Also, this is a time to be concerned about our neighbors, especially the elderly and infirm.  An offer of hot soup, a trip to the grocery store (Safeway and Hamilton’s Market are open) or just checking in by phone will be important.

FINALLY

The quality of people and a community show up during times of crisis and I’m already seeing it in our community.  We will get through this by caring for one another and by living out our faith that this too shall pass.

Mayor Jay Barber, City of Seaside, Oregon
