Selling DeLaura Beach to the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department serves many.

Here are a few advantages I can think of: DeLaura Beach protects Camp Kiwanilong; it maintains a buffer for Camp Rilea from development; it provides a natural extension for the Warrenton Trail; it removes the responsibility for patrol and enforcement from the county sheriff; it maintains accessibility for the general public to the area, rather than a wealthy few; and it provides Clatsop County with the money needed to invest in the numerous parks they currently own.

There are other reasons not listed here.

I implore the county commission to sell the property to OPRD before the grant money is no longer available. There is no downside to doing the right thing.
