Park Planning Meeting – July 13

The  Community Park is in its infancy.   The parking lot is open and has been used  on weekends to help ease some of the parking issues in Cape Kiwanda.  Parking donations are helping us with the next steps.

Come Join us on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 6 – 7:30 pm in the new conference room at the Kiawanda Community Center at 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive in Pacific City.   It is a good opportunity to see the new construction – another project that benefited from the Tillamook Lodging Tax (TLT)

The agenda is limited and will focus on the short term promotion and operation of the park for the remainder of this year.   Also, longer term planning will be discussed which will include planning into 2018 and beyond.

We need YOU to succeed – your help, ideas, support and commitment.    YOU are full & part time residents, business owners, parents, students, surfers, visitors and anyone interested in the betterment of the community.   All are welcome.

There are exciting things happening in Pacific City!  Come join us and be part of this adventure.

Science Camp 2017 – Energy

Be it solar, wind, water, electricity, heat or various other sources  – ENERGY will be the subject of this year’s Science Camp.

NVCA in conjunction with the Nestucca Valley Elementary school is preparing for our Fifth Annual Science Camp.   We have received a $9.800 grant from Trust Management Services in Waldport, Oregon .

The science camp will be held in July with the tentative dates being July 10th through July 27th.   Each Thursday of the Science Camp,  July 13 and July 20  NVCA volunteers work with the students and instructors on hands on projects.  We will also assist on a field trip that will be held on the last  Thursday of the science camp, July 27.

In years past, there have been as many as 70 students attending the science camp and can use help from the community.   We encourage those that are interested to come and help out.   If you are interested, contact us at nvcainfo@gmail.com.

Better still, come to our next meeting on Saturday,  June 10th at 10 AM at the Kiawanda Community Center, 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive.

 

 

Come Join Us April 20 To Discuss the Construction of the Parking Lot

Please join us at our NVCA Board meeting Thursday, April 20th at 6 PM at the Kiawanda Community Center, 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive in Pacific City.    All NVCA board meetings are public meetings and we welcome those interested to attend and share their thoughts and ideas.We are making progress on the park.

The earth moving equipment is on the property and soon gravel will be laid for the parking lot.  To complete this phase of the park will include the installation of power gate, space markings, signage, security cameras and temporary sanitation facilities.

Remember this is just the initial phase and an important building block.   It will lead to the playground, recreation areas and of course the skate and bike area.

The primary discussion will be on the startup of the parking lot at the Community Park.  An integral part of our planning will address the following:

  • Parking revenue implementation plan –  What can we do to generate revenue and cover expenses?   We will discuss how to develop an effective collection system and process to utilize this phase of the park.
  • Several options have been outlined and distributed to the Board members including communications and promotions of the community park development.

But we will need help and more community involvement to make this work.    Come join us and share your ideas, insights and your skills and talents.
