2018 – Start of a Great Year for NVCA

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday.   The New Year is upon us and NVCA is moving toward a productive 2018.  We are planning the next steps for the development of the park which includes securing funding for infrastructure projects, the playground, the skate park, and Science Camp 2018.  Also, we are planning our processes to keep the parking lot open in peak periods this spring and summer.

NVCA would like to hold  an “Open House” this spring for the community to view the park and its future plans.  We need someone to lead a committee to organize a spring/summer “Open House”. Do you have good event planning skills? Do you want to help make a difference in the community?

With the help and support of the NVCA board, the Open House committee would recruit a few members, develop a budget, plan and implement the Open House. Interested? Please let us know at nvcainfo@gmail.com. Just put Open House in the subject line. Or call Richard at 503-965-0018.

Next NVCA Park Meeting is schedule for Saturday,  January 13th at the Kiawanda Community Center at 1:00 pm.  Come join us!

As you already know,   NVCA is an all volunteer organization.   It is run by the community for the community.   We would encourage all to help in this endeavor.

Let’s make this a great year for Pacific City.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Significant Success for the Park in 2017

NVCA is excited to report to you that we have made some significant progress on the Park in 2016 and 2017.  We …….

  • Received a TLT grant of to develop the gravel parking lot at the entrance of the park property.
  • Contracted with HHPR for the landscape engineering and Earthworks (a local contractor) for construction of the parking lot
  • Were awarded a grant from Trust Management Services LLC (TMS) for the fifth annual and very successful Science Camp in 2017
  • Were given a grant from Tillamook Public Utility District (TPUD) to install a radio controller gate providing security and emergency vehicle access to the park 24/7.
  • Opened and operated a functional parking lot to help relieve the parking hassle for visitors and residents at Cape Kiwanda
  • Earned approximately $3,000 from parking proceeds with the lot operation.

We are on our way – and in 2018 will aggressively pursue grants to fund a children’s playground, picnic benches, trash and restroom facilities for the park.  We plan on an Open House for the park where visitors and residents alike can tour the park property, study the drawings and see that the community park is on its way.  Watch for future announcements.

Please donate your time or dollars to keep the momentum going.

We need your continuing support so, please visit the website at www.nestuccca.org  to volunteer and/or donate to this worthy cause.    Mail donations to PO Box 253, Pacific City, Oregon 971235.

NVCA Parking Area Opens in Cape Kiwanda

We did it!  We achieved our initial goal to provide overflow parking for the Cape Kiwanda area.

The first phase of the community park has been completed and NVCA opened the area to parking last weekend on June 23 and June 24 – when the weather was its hottest in the Valley.    A number of folks used the parking area and expressed appreciation for a safe place to park so close to the Cape.

The park operates on the honor system.    We expect folks using the parking lot will show respect for the property, the neighbors and the community.   NVCA encourages donations from people parking in the area – there is a drop box for those donations.   A $5 minimum donation is suggested.   All donations are used for the further development of the park.   Our next goal:  a children’s playground.

We hope that Pacific City businesses and residents around Cape Kiwanda appreciate this additional parking area and encourage its use.   Now this weekend –  July 1 –  Fireworks in Pacific City –  through July 4.   The Parking lot will be open Saturday through Tuesday from 8 am to 7 pm when the park will be closed and the gate locked.

NVCA is an all -volunteer organization.   The ability to open the parking lot to the community is wholly dependent on volunteers.   We are reaching out for additional help to keep this up as a service to the community.    There are simple tasks:  unlock and open the gate, close the park and lock the gate, and someone can occasionally walk through the lot as a monitor.  These activities take only minutes and do not have to be the same person.

Anyone can volunteer.  So if you are a resident, a property owner, a business owner in the local area or just love to visit Pacific City for the weekend, please consider helping NVCA in providing this service.

Contact NVCA at nvcainfo@gmail.com.

Also feel free to join us at our next meeting on July 13 at Kiwanda Community Center at 6 PM.    Bring your thoughts and ideas and meet the volunteers who worked so hard to make this happen.
