NVCA Awarded Non-Profit Status – Now a 501(c)3 Organization

Nestucca Valley Community Alliance (NVCA) is pleased to announce that we have received our non-profit status from the IRS. We are officially a 501(c)3 organization.   With this status, gifts from many donors will be become tax deductible as a charitable contribution and will help NVCA raise funds to achieve our objectives.

NVCA’s primary goals are to promote, recreational, educational and cultural venues in South County.  In this regard, we are partnering with Tillamook Light Wave (TLW) to convert a portion of the property at the Cable Landing Station, 33395 Cape Kiwanda Drive, to a Community Park,   that park will include a small skate park, children and adult playground equipment, a picnic area and eventually an interpretive center.   NVCA is currently in the process of negotiating a lease for the property with TLW.

Educational outreach is a priority for the NVCA.   We are partnering with the Nestucca Valley School District and the Neskowin Valley School to enhance and expand science programs in their curricula.  The NVCA is also exploring avenues for increasing science awareness outside the classroom for all South County residents.  We are working with the University of Washington and Oregon State University oceanographers to promote access to the revolutionary science of the Ocean Observatories Initiative whose cabled network of the next generation undersea sensors is based in Pacific CIty.

With the 501(c)3 status, NVCA will be planning a number of fund raising events in 2013.  We hope the community will support our efforts.   Please visit our website at http://www.nestucca.org or contact us at nvcainfo@gmail.com if you wish to contribute or volunteer your time and skills to the park or to our educational goals.

Community Park Presentation at PC-Woods CPAC

CACWhat a turnout!  We were impressed that 60+ community members of all ages and interests came to the CPAC Meeting on Monday, July 16th at the Kiawanda Community Center to hear the NVCA presentation on the community park proposed for the Cable Landing property.  Quite a showing for a Monday night meeting on a beautiful summer day.

In keeping with NVCA’s mission, to provide recreational, cultural and educational opportunities in South County, the community park proposed would include space not only for recreation but also a place for the community to sponsor cultural and educational events.  Uses being considered include picnic areas, covered activity areas, playgrounds, an amphitheatre, a future interpretive center and the potential for a skate park.

The NVCA presentation also shared a brief history of the organization as well as the status of the lease.

There was a good discusion and participation.  The skate board community was well represented and expressed their support for a skate park for a portion of the property.    Neighbors to the proposed park were also in attendance and expressed their concern for parking, noise, traffic and security.  There were no major objections to the park, just that it be planned out responsibly.

Go to the Key Info Tab to find the complete presentation.

Community commitment and support like this will help make the park a reality.  We hope we have your continued support.
