On Tuesday – November 1, Tillamook Lightwave (TLW) and Nestucca Valley Community Alliance (NVCA) met in Conference Room B at the Tillamook Courthouse.
Two bids were received for the gravel parking lot work for the Pacific City Community Park. We received two bids.
Bid 1: Road & Driveway – Newport Oregon $151,482.30
Bid 2: Earth Works Excavation – Beaver Oregon (Bill Howard Owner) $97,865
We chose the Earth Works Excavation bid for $97,865. Although this was the lower bid it still is approximately $13,000 over the TLT Grant total. We believe with some adjustments to the work we can bring the cost down. HHPR is contributing an additional $1,000 of in kind work to offset some of the cost. HHPR and TLW will be working with Earth Works to review the engineering to find areas that can be adjusted to bring this within the grant budget.
However, please understand that even with this approach we will still need additional funding to complete this project. NVCA will need to raise funds for radio controlled gate, signage and other amenities we may need to develop a working parking lot.
This is where we will need help! We need to organize and hold creative and innovative fund raisers in the near future to get this parking lot done. Got ideas?? Can you help?? Just go to the volunteer page and sign up or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The best way is to come to our next meeting – Saturday November 19, at 10 AM at the Kiawanda Community Center. We will be talking about park progress as well as the future of NVCA.
