State Sen. Arnie Roblan, D-Coos Bay, will speak to the Oceanside Neighborhood Association, a Tillamook County-sanctioned citizens advisory committee, on Saturday, Feb. 7, 10 AM, in Oceanside.
Sen. Roblan, whose Senate District 5 extends 200 miles from south of Coos Bay to the northern tip of Bay Ocean Spit on Tillamook Bay, has been asked to address legislative issues involving the Oregon Forest Practices Act that cover chemical spraying in the Short Creek watershed, which serves as the drinking water for Oceanside and nearby Cape Meares.
In addition to Oceanside, the communities of Cape Meares and Netarts have been invited to attend. The meeting will be in the Oceanside Community Hall at 1550 Pacific Avenue.
Sen. Roblan is chair of the Senate Education committee and serves on the Ways and Means Committee as well as the Ways and Means education subcommittee.
The Oceanside Neighborhood Association, which was accepted by the Tillamook Board of Commissioners as a citizen advisory committee in 1998, represents the community of about 350 residents and several businesses. About 200 Oceansiders are active in the organization.
