City To Discuss Pedestrian Safety On Oceanview Drive

In July, a group of Newport citizens addressed the City Council regarding pedestrian and bicycle safety-related issues on Oceanview Drive. At that meeting, it was agreed that this issue would be discussed again at the Tuesday, September 5, 2017 City Council meeting. The meeting begins at 6:00 P.M., in the Council Chambers, of the Newport City Hall, 169 SW Coast Highway. Most of the concerns were around the increased speed limit to 35-mph.

Following the July meeting, a group consisting of a City Councilor, staff, and a resident of the neighborhood, walked Oceanview Drive. During the walk, various potential short- and long-term solutions were identified. At the September 5, 2017 meeting, these potential solutions will be presented and discussed.

Interested citizens are encouraged to attend and provide input at the September 5, 2017 meeting.
