Abstract or Summary
  • The City of Waldport, Oregon, has been periodically exposed to the effects of marine flooding and erosion. Consequent to the erosion of the Alsea Bay sandspit during the fall of 1985, one Waldport residential neighborhood was faced with the imminent threat of serious marine flood inundation. This study includes a brief description of the background of the 1985-86 marine flooding and erosion threat to the city of Waldport, a discussion of the various mitigation measures and land use procedures that have been recently investigated by the City of Waldport, an exploration of some of the alternatives available to Waldport in response to the threat of marine flood inundation, and recommendations for a course of land use redevelopment for the Maple Street area. The recommendations are provided in the realization that land use planning and mitigation for areas previously developed in hazardous areas is a difficult task for a small community with only limited resources, as well as for the geographer who would try to help solve the problem.
