Homeless in Gold Beach

A homeless man settles into softball dugout at Buffington Park in Gold Beach “to just rest for a while.” Gold Beach Police have been cracking down on people sleeping in the park overnight.

A few years ago it was not uncommon to see homeless people panhandling in Harbor, clutching cardboard signs that read: “Help, I’m hungry” and “Anything will help.” 

But their numbers have have dwindled since the county implemented anti-loitering and no panhandling ordinances. Some Gold Beach residents are convinced the homeless have migrated north to their city.


County nixes business licenses

A proposal to implement business licenses in unincorporated Curry County died this week when the county’s planning department nixed the idea, agreeing with citizens’ complaints that details were too vague and it wouldn’t go over well with business owners. 

The question of the business license, a proposal to charge “home occupations” an outright use instead of making people obtain a conditional use permit (CUP), and another to allow cottage businesses, were unanimously struck down in Wednesday night’s meeting.

The commission plans to bring up issues related to home occupations and cottage industries at a meeting early next year.
