The February meeting of the Waldport Climate Crisis Planning group takes place on Tuesday, Feb. 18, 6:30 p.m., at the Seashore Family Literacy Center (125 N.W. Spruce St.) in Waldport.

The meeting will feature a discussion of the 2018 Lincoln County resolution to establish a public-private partnership in which Lincoln County participates in information sharing, supports forums for discussion of alternatives and innovations, and provides residents, stakeholders and all interested parties opportunities to review and give input on climate legislation and policy choices by local decision-makers. Martin Desmond, one of the authors of the resolution, will lead the discussion.

Desmond will also report on work toward a comprehensive adaptation and mitigation action plan for the county, based on local planning, and Linda Carskadon will explain the duties and training of CERT (Citizens' Emergency Response Team) volunteers.

Doors will be open at 6 p.m. for welcome and a song by Bill Kucha, founder and chair of 350.Oregon Central Coast, who will moderate the discussion.

These planning meetings are sponsored by Citizens Climate Lobby, 350.Oregon Central Coast, and Senitila McKinley. The Seashore Family Literacy Center is located at the east end of the parking area behind the (now closed) Umpqua Bank building. From Highway 34, turn north at the intersection of Spring Street and Alder, across from the Fire Station, then right into the former parking lot. The Center is located in the DaNoble House, at the far east end of the lot.
