Lincoln County’s seat, Newport, is Oregon's secondary fishing port after Astoria. Second home buying is an issue to consider when forecasting housing units. Survey response do not cite issues like low vacancy or a hot real-estate market, nor significant economic development activities. County-wide population is projected to reach a relatively slow growth after 2040. Information received through the general surveys suggest that coastal cities, such as Depoe Bay, attract more purchases of secondary homes.
