On Saturday, November 16th the NVCA Officers signed the 49 year lease and the revocable license with Tillamook Lightwave for a cost of $10/year. Paul Levesque, President of TLW, also placed his signature on the documents to finalize the agreement.
This is the first step in developing 2.4 acres at the Cable Landing Station on Cape Kiwanda Drive.
This agreement has been a long time in the making. In 2008, community leaders saw an opportunity to convert the vacant Telecom Property to Community Use. Many thanks go to those innovative individuals who banded together to start the process.
NVCA is planning multiple uses for the property. This includes picnic areas, children’s and adult playgrounds, covered and open activity areas, skate park and an amphitheater. An interpretive center is also planned and will focus on science, as well as historical and cultural history of the area.
The next most immediate step is to work with Tillamook Lightwave to install a fence to separate the TLW use with NVCA. Once that is done we will be able to begin work on the property.
NVCA will begin their strategic planning and budgeting for 2014 and 2015 after the first of the year. We will be needing help from the community in the coming months.

A meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. September 12th at the Kiawanda Community Center to discuss the potential development of property immediately north and including Webb Park for purposes originally included in the NVCA’s plans for the cable landing station tract. Items that might be located on this property include an interpretive center, amphitheater, parking, and trailhead for adjacent U.S. Forest Service and BLM properties.
