Oceanside Neighborhood Association Meeting Invite

oceanside
Attached is the agenda for the Oceanside Neighborhood Association meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday, August 2, 2014, in the community club.  All residents of Cape Meares are invited to attend this meeting.

Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart and Public Works Director Liane Welch will make a presentation on the Cape Meares Loop Road alternatives to relocate it. This is an important discussion. We’d like to have a quorum so that the ONA can add its voice to the Federal Highway Administration and our congressman to promote this vital project. Please attend.

The community of Cape Meares is being invited to this meeting because its livelihood is also affected by Cape Meares Loop Road.

Also we’ll discuss possibilities for getting a cell tower placed in Oceanside so that emergency calls to 911, for example, can be made more easily.

Water Pipe Break Fixed

David Nordman,  Oceanside Water District operator,  announced the successful repair of a broken water pipe in Cape Meares.  Repair was completed by approximately 10 AM today, July 11.

Portions of Cape Meares were without water for approximately two hours when water had to be turned off.

David reports that the it will take a bit of time to restore full pressure to the highest elevations in Cape Meares due to the low level in the reservoir, but as the tank fills the pressure will return.
