WALDPORT — The Port of Alsea is looking at ways to slow down erosion on the nearby shoreline.

The Port of Alsea Board of Commissioners is set to vote on a draft ordinance that would restrict the cutting and removal of wood from port property.

The draft ordinance aims to promote sand stabilization along the shoreline on the south side of Alsea Bay, from the east right of way of the Alsea Bay Bridge, up to, but not including, the port’s boat launch ramp.

The restriction doesn’t apply to small pieces of wood for personal use carried by one person for a souvenir, or to un-embedded wood gathered for personal use as fuel for a beach fire.
