Making a Community Park a Reality

A place for fun, friends, picnics, hikes, skate boarding and discovery

The 2014 annual meeting of the Nestucca Valley Community Alliance (NVCA), will be held in the Pacific City Central Building/Pacific Bible Church, on Saturday, October 11, at 10:00 am.

Natural Resource Specialist for the Coastal Region, Ms. Katie Duzik, will speak to NVCA members and the community, courtesy of Oregon Parks & Recreation Department. Ms. Duzik will touch on learning opportunities built-in to the Beltz Farm Park planning, including field trips, nature studies and a number of hiking trails through differing habitats and wetlands. Ms. Duzik will share similarities in their park planning process to that of the NVCA, and will point out ways in which the two parks can complement and assist each other. Duzik is expected to speak for about twenty minutes, after which the NVCA regular business will convene.

The NVCA Agenda will include a recap of our 2014 accomplishments, including the spring fund-raising campaign, “One Foot at a Time”, which succeeded in raising enough funds to completely fence the park, our Spring Break educational presentation on “Birds of Prey”, an equally well-attended kite building workshop, the Science Pub on the Erosion of the Tillamook Coast, completion of the park fence and apron, and winning a TPUD grant for $5500 and a very successful summer Science Camp.

Goals for the coming year include the selection of a designer to complete the final concept and master plans for the park, grading and clearing of the park property, and other organizational developments that will impact our work in the community.

There will be an opportunity to meet the site planning and park development and education committee as well as the candidates nominated for the NVCA Board. The floor will be opened for nominations and community members attending will have the opportunity to elect the NVCA Board of Directors.

If you are interested in what the park can do for you and the community as a whole, we encourage you to attend. Also –  Find us on Facebook
