Brookings tackles transportation needs

It’s been almost 20 years since the city of Brookings updated its Transportation System Plan and the new one is likely to include a bunch of new elements, reflecting how the city has grown and changed in those years.

The city has received a $190,000 grant — it must provide a $35,000 match — to hire a firm to conduct a study to determine what transportation will be needed in the future. A major component will include bicycles, ADA improvements and best routes for students to get to school and for ambulances to leave the city, said Donna Colby-Hanks, planning manager for the city.

Officials hope to curb panhandling

Curry County commissioners will ask state officials if laws banning hitchhiking in rights-of-ways can be extended to include panhandling.
