Neal Maine still remembers the battle over development in Sunset Cove in Seaside. He sees the results of it every day. A sand berm built by developers is finally breaking down. Rocks and debris dumped in the estuary almost a half-century ago continue to litter the shoreline.

“We’re still living with the rock that was put there in 1976,” Maine said. “We’re still living with it and it’s basically contaminating the estuary for the rest of time.”
