Nestucca Valley Community Alliance (NVCA), is pleased to announce that we are moving forward on the construction of the gravel parking lot for the Community Park. Our Sponsor, Tillamook Lightwave (TLW) has just posted a Call for Bids in the Headlight Herald.
This is an exciting time for NVCA volunteers as it represents a major step forward for the park. In March 2016 NVCA received a $98,000 grant from the Tillamook Lodging Tax for the construction documents and work on the gravel parking lot. Remember, that this represents only a fraction – 5% of the cost of $2.0 million to complete the park.
HHPR and Tillamook Lightwave will manage the bidding process. Bid forms and specifications will be available the first week of October with the final bid deadline at 4:00 pm Tuesday November 1st. Bid forms can be obtained by contacting:
Susan Corbisiero, Tillamook County Courthouse, 201 Laurel Avenue Tillamook, Oregon, 97141 Hours: 8 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The park will include a children’s playground, a small amphitheater, an adult exercise area, recreational areas for horseshoes, volleyball and bocce ball as well as a skate board and bike area and picnic areas. In addition, areas will be available to display cultural, historical and educational interest. Check out the Tour the Park for details on the park design.
