The work on the park has begun. On Friday, June 6, 2014 – representatives from Coast Com, TLW, Kellow Land Surveying, NVCA and Bros and Hoes were out in force. It is the beginning of a long road. We met on Friday to make sure all parties understood the fence line, where to clear for the fence and to discuss the timeline. Work will begin on Monday, June 9 and will hopefully be completed by June 18.
Now the fun begins – to make the park a reality NVCA will need help from all. Money is always welcome but your time and talent are also very valuable to us. If you would like to participate and help with some aspects of the park this summer please let us know. We will need to clear the area – as you can see from the photo it will need a lot of work. We will focus on developing the final concept, site and engineering plan. The final outcome is a Master Plan that will allow us to move forward and secure funding.
To be able to realize a bona fide park with playground equipment, picnic areas, amphitheater and a skate park – we need dedicated folks who can give of their time and talent.
We need folks can help with manual labor, who are good at planning and rallying volunteers, people who enjoy writing grants, are good with computers and who like to plan events. This is open to all who have an interest and a desire to see this to its completion. You can reside anywhere in South County, Portland, Vancouver or elsewhere. Even if you can be at the beach only for a short time this summer and would like to help. Let us know.
Please visit the Volunteer Page on this website and sign up – we will send you an applciation and speak with you of your talents and timeline.
Remember this is a park built for the community by the community.
