New sign for Harbor

A new sign greets drivers coming into Harbor these days — the first sign the community has ever had announcing the entrance to it and the Port of Brookings Harbor.

It’s part of the county’s Unincorporated Community Pride Sign Project and the state transportation department’s City/County Entrance Program, said Commissioner David Brock Smith, who spearheaded the project.

The sign is posted on logs wrapped with donated rope, eliciting a nautical theme. It reads “Welcome to Harbor” and “Home to the Port of Brookings Harbor.”


County wrestles with pot regulations

Citizens at a Curry County commissioner workshop Wednesday requested the board take a wait-and-see attitude before implementing any new regulations regarding land use and growing marijuana.

The state is fine-tuning its rules — currently comprising 78 pages — that address setbacks from neighbors, security lights and the unmistakable skunk-like odor that emanates from the plants.

The county planning commission agreed in a recent meeting that the county has three options: to wait to see what the state does before approving additional regulations the state might have overlooked, pass rules of its own or deny recreational marijuana growing permits altogether.

“It’s a land-use compatibility issue,” said Curry County Planner Nancy Chester. “We’d only be telling the state that our zoning allows this particular activity. They have tons of regulations they then put on it.”
