***PRESS RELEASE***
Depoe Bay Fire District 2017 Eclipse talks

On August 21, 2017, millions will see nature's most wondrous spectacle — a total eclipse of the Sun. It is a scene of unimaginable beauty; the Moon completely blocks the Sun, daytime becomes a deep twilight, and the Sun’s corona shimmers in the darkened sky. And, the Depoe Bay Fire District is ground zero for its first arrival on the continental US. Depoe Bay Fire Chief Joshua Williams has been preparing for this event for several years and one way of preparing is educating the public. Thus the Depoe Bay Fire District is pleased to offer five presentations about the 2017  solar eclipse, one each month till the eclipse itself! Attendees will learn how to pick their "sweet spot" for viewing the eclipse; they'll learn about the various ways that they can view the eclipse; they'll learn how to be safe during the eclipse; and how they can make individual preparedness a top priority given the number of visitors predicted to visit our area. As Chief Williams says, “Nobody knows how many visitors we'll have on the coast for this event ... but we need to be prepared for supersized!"  

The speaker for these presentations is Kay Wyatt, local astronomer, who has her own astronomical observatory north of Lincoln City in the coastal mountains. Each presentation begins at 7 p.m. at the Gleneden Beach Fire Station (6445 Gleneden Beach Loop Road, Gleneden Beach, OR) on Thursdays, April 20, May 18, June 15, July 27 and August 17th.

Come and learn how you can get the most out of your eclipse experience and stay safe too. For more information you can contact the Depoe Bay Fire District at 541-764-2202 or instructor Kay Wyatt at info@countdowntoeclipse.net.

Depoe Bay Sign Ordinance

A public hearing will be held with the Depoe Bay Planning Commission on May 10, 2017 to review the proposed Depoe Bay Sign Ordinance.  The public is encouraged to attend the public hearing and provide input on the draft ordinance.

The proposed Depoe Bay Sign Ordinance combines existing sign regulations into one document and is a significant update to current sign regulations.  The proposed sign ordinance would make some sign regulations more restrictive, e.g. limits sign coverage to a maximum 20% of a building façade and prohibits roof signs.  The proposed sign ordinance relaxes some sign regulations, e.g. currently A-Frame (sandwich board) signs are prohibited and the proposed sign ordinance would allow A-Frame signs.  The sign ordinance is proposed to be incorporated into the Depoe Bay Zoning Ordinance.
