Oceanside Neighborhood Association Meeting Invite

Attached is the agenda for the Oceanside Neighborhood Association meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday, August 2, 2014, in the Oceanside Chapel, 1575 Chinook Avenue.  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.

Public Meeting Regarding Loop Road Proposals

Tillamook County Public Works Director, Liane Welch, will be presenting several proposals regarding the Loop Road at the Tillamook County Board of Commissioners public meeting on June 24 beginning at 2 PM in the Commissioners Meeting Room B in Tillamook.  This is a meeting that should be of interest to Cape Meares residents.

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.
