In January, the Seaside
City Council took a look
into its crystal ball, seeking
to set a two-and four-year
goal-setting agenda.
The aim of January’s
meeting, moderated by
Beau Bennett and Matthew
Landkamer of the Corag-
gio Group, was to develop
a strategy to preserve or
enhance “the desirable
characteristics” of Seaside.
On Monday, June 10,
Barber and city council-
ors picked up where they
left off, delivering prelim-
inary results as they hope
to meet those goals. “Our
feeling is, if you set goals,
they need to be measured
and accounted for,” Barber

the public in coming years.
Steve Wright’s goal was
to increase citizen involve-

Center and Museum will
not be moving ahead with
a plan to purchase Cannon
Beach Elementary School
from the Seaside School
The museum had hoped
to restore the gymnasium
and create a cultural event
center for the community of
Cannon Beach.
“Over the past few
months it has become clear
that our timeline for this pur-
chase must be pushed back,”
Elaine Murdy said Monday.
“We hope to approach the
school district in the future,
but for now, we must focus
our energy on the museum
and its collections.”
In November, school dis-
trict superintendent Sheila
Roley said the board sup-
ported the sale.
The building, which has
sat vacant at the north end
of Cannon Beach since the
school was closed in 2013,
has long been of interest to
the city, which discussed
buying it as some form of
event or community center
on and off for years.
Confederated Tribes also
showed interest in preserv-
ing the unique building as a
cultural landmark. It is one
of four buildings the dis-
trict is attempting to sell as
it continues to build a new
campus out of the tsunami
inundation zone.
According to Trucke in
November, the board dis-
cussed buying the property
for more than a year, and
offi cially sent an offer of
