Yachats city officials are trying to get ahead of the curve this primary election. They’re asking voters to pre-approve spending up to $400,000 to secure additional parking in the town core.
On a sunny summer weekend, the coastal town of Yachats is a busy place – hotel rooms are sold out and traffic through town is non-stop.
Brean: “I’ve heard as many as 10,000 people are in town on the 4th of July weekend.”
Yachats Mayor Ron Brean says the city just doesn’t have the parking capacity to meet the need.
