NVCA Board Meeting

NVCA will be holding a board meeting on Wednesday September 19, 2012 at 6:30 PM at the Kiawanda Community Center,  34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive. All are welcome.

Before the Board meeting – the Board members will meet at the Cable Landing Station on Cape Kiwanda Drive, to tour the property for the proposed park.


Cable Laying Operations

The cable laying ship, CS Dependable is back. They are doing some great stuff off the Oregon Coast. This time the crew is attaching the nodes to the electro/optic fiber cable.   Apparently,  they can grab the cable from the seafloor,  bring it up to the ship and splice to the node. Then they test the node on deck and return it to the seafloor.  Four nodes have been completed in July and three more in August including the one farthest out on the Axial Mount.

Follow the action on the Oceans Observatories blog at    There are great pics.

NVCA Community Park Design

Colourful playground.
Colorful playground.

Again, we would like to thank the community for the feedback and support received regarding the potential park design for the Cable Landing Station on Cape Kiwanda Drive.   The turn out of 60+ community members at the CPAC meeting on July 16 was truly impressive.

The NVCA Board is pleased to announce that we have selected the following for our Community Park at our Board Meeting on July 18th.   It will have a picnic area, children’s playground, adult playground, small amphitheater, Covered activity area,  and a small skate park.

In the Long Term we will also plan for an Interpretive Center for educational/cultural use.

We hope that this will address the interests of all age groups and provide areas not only for recreation but for educational and cultural events.  It will be a place for families to congregate and enjoy. Again thanks to all for your feedback


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.
