CMCA meeting on August 9!
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.

At the May CMCA meeting Keith Johanson indicated several local Tillamook churches would be supporting the efforts of 24 college students to raise money for cancer research and asked whether the Cape Meares community residents would like to join in the fund-raising event by providing a potluck lunch for the riders plus another 10 support staff when they arrive in Cape Meares at approximately 10 AM on August 6. The response from those who were attending the meeting was most positive.

Ms. Welch will also host a presentation at the Oceanside Community Center on August 2 at 10 AM. Cape Meares residents are invited to attend this meeting to learn more about the proposed solutions to the closed Loop Road.
The Cape Meares Loop Road was closed in January 2013 after the road began to accelerate its slide to the Pacific Ocean.
Currently residents of Cape Meares are limited to only Bayocean Road as an evacuation route to Tillamook.
