We Did It!! Fence Will Be Up Soon

Didithanks for a great community effort. Over 40 folks and organizations gave their support to the park fence in just over 4 weeks. Thanks also for the matching fund and the contribution for the Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic. TLW and Coast Com also helped in a big way –  they received an alternative bid that was lower than the original estimate.   Still planning on contributing.   All donations through April 30th will be recognized in the ONE FOOT AT A TIME campaign and your name will be included on the fence sign, if you wish.

With that we have asked that construction of the fence to be started. It may take a few weeks to schedule but it is in the works.

Now the fun and the work begins! There are a number of components of the park including playground equipment and a skate. Planning is essential and that will begin soon.

Are you interested in helping?  Do you have talents that can be an asset to planning a park?   Let us know – just go to the Volunteer Page and submit your name.  We will get in touch with you.

Almost Half-way (47%) To Our Goal

almost-2Wow – almost halfway to our goal to get the $10,500 match. In the past week $1,450  have been contributed by 14 individuals in the South County are. Another $3,500 comes from the Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic group.

The CKLC understands the critical need for the fence and that it is the stepping stone for the park including the development of a skate park. If you recall, in November this group became a standing committee of NVCA and will act as fundraising arm for the skate park.    They are contributing a portion of  their profits to get the fence built so work we can begin planning the park.

Remember the park will also include children’s playground activities, covered and open activity areas, an amphitheatre, of course, a parking area. In the future NVCA would like to build an interpretive center for educational and cultural events.

Don’t procrastinate – be part of the action and buy a foot of fence for $25 or 2, 5 or 10 feet – whatever you wish.  All contributors will be recognized on a plaque (yet to be designed) that will be posted to fence.   Let the community know you support the park either as an individual or local business.

Now Is Your Chance – Help The Community Park

OnefootNow is your chance! Buy a foot of fence for the Community Park and your name will be added to a plaque commemorating Community Teamwork. One foot is just $25 and it will be matched by a local donor. Let’s get this Park going. Remember it will include, picnic areas, playground equipment, activity areas, a skate park and a small amphitheater. But first we need to build the fence.   Just click on the Community Park Fund on the donate page.

Build A Park – One Foot At A Time

BuildingHelp build the park fence – ONE FOOT AT A TIME. Buy a foot of fence for $25. There is a matching fund so it is like buying two feet for the price of one. Click on the DONATE button above and choose the Community Park Fund. All donations received for this fund from now through April will go toward the fence

This first step is crucial. Before we can start any work on the Community Park a fence needs to be built to divide the Cable Landing Property and define the 2+ acres for the Park. The cost of the 746 ft chain link fence, gate and related driveway is approximately $27,000. Our goal is to have the fence built at the end of April. Then the task of clearing, grading and moving forward can begin this spring and summer.

A local donor is offering a match of $10,500. NVCA has applied for a Tillamook PUD Grant for part of the cost and contributions have been received from the Longboard Classic. But we still need to raise about 20% of the cost from the community. So now is your opportunity.

Please buy just 1 foot, 5 feet, 10 feet or whatever you wish.  Help make this park a reality.
