Nextdoor Progress Report

So far the campaign  to encourage Cape Meares full-time and part-time residents to sign up for Nextdoor is going well.  On Tuesday evening Merilee Sommers invited 140 people from Cape Meares  to join with the idea that Nextdoor might serve as a directory for residents and make it easy to learn who your neighbors are and how you might contact them when the need arises.  The tally of those who have joined reached 56 after only two days.  This represents about a 40% response rate.  We hope the number of residents who will be using this resource will continue to grow in the coming days.

Demolition of Old Cape Meares Water Tank

cut

The demolition of the Cape Meares 100,000 gallon, Cor-Ten reservoir began on Monday, 9/23/14, when the crew  moved in to the location of the tank and, by the end of the day,  completely removed the steel top of the reservoir.  On Tuesday, 9/24/14, the sides of the reservoir came down in sheets 6 feet wide by 12 foot in length.  By the end of the day the tank demolition project was one-third complete.  With all the oxy/acetylene torch cutting going on, the damp weather has been beneficial in creating a safe environment for the project.
