I am a local who is out of town for school. I grew up in Seaside. I heard about this bill ( "Seaside's clean-up ordinance denied," The Daily Astorian, Feb. 10), and it scared me.
I'm so happy that we're trying to figure out an alternative. I agree that our little Seaside could use a facelift ... but not like that.
Maybe we should see what we can do about getting volunteers and having fundraisers to help people clean up their property. The key word is "help." Not everyone can do it on their own.
We have a great little community. Let's make it strong.
