Notice is hereby given that the initial public hearing will be held by the Depoe Bay Planning Commission at Depoe Bay City Hall, 570 SE Shell Avenue, Depoe Bay, OR. The Planning Commission may take action at the hearing, or may continue the matter to a place, date, and time announced at the hearing.
