Liane Welch, Direction of Tillamook County Public Works, was recently notified by the Federal Highway Commission (FHC) that the $18.2 million option of building a by-pass around the slide area on the Loop Road had been denied. This option was the preferred solution by both Public Works and by the three Tillamook County Commissioners.
First, a reminder of the August Quarterly CMCA meeting on Saturday, August 9, 10 AM, Community Center. An agenda was previously sent regarding the meeting. A lite luncheon of gourmet prepared food by local residents will be served following this meeting for anyone interesting in staying.
At about 4:30 PM on Wednesday, August 6, the re-siding project of our beloved Cape Meares Community Center was completed. Mostly. Only a few odds and ends remain to completely wrap up the project that began about two years ago with a fund-raising effort.
This renovation was achieved because of the volunteer efforts of many individuals. The dollars contributed were significant and necessary for purchasing the materials needed, but the volunteer efforts were equally important. The effort was primarily “do it yourself.” DIY projects don’t always turn our as we would like, but if you take a look at the finished project you will have to agree that it looks like it was completed by professionals. That’s because two professionals, Chris Spence and Randy Klobas, were the ones who guided the volunteers throughout the process.
We now have a refurbished community center we can all be proud of and one that will continue to be an important hub of activities for many years to come.
Well done Cape Meares residents!
For more pictures of the community project and a picture of Randy Klobas attaching the proverbial “golden staple” into the final shingle on the community center see the album that has completed below.
Bob Garrigues, local Cape Meares resident and member of the Tillamook County Road Advisory Committee, forwarded information that may be of interest regarding our exit route to Tillamook.
In a meeting of the committee today, August 4, there was discussion regarding a new sleeve that will be added to the culvert under the dike road out of Cape Meares Lake.
The work is scheduled to be begin on Wednesday, August 13. Crews will be onsite and heavy equipment will be involved. Expect delays in the work area on this date. No word on how much time will be required for the repair.

CMCA meeting on August 9!
The Oceanside Neighborhood Association meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday, August 2, 2014, will be held in the Oceanside Chapel, 1575 Chinook Avenue instead of the community building. All residents of Cape Meares are invited to attend this meeting.
Click on the link below for directions to the chapel.
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.
