Roads Update
The NBNA will schedule a work party for May or June to address potholes in unpaved roads. There are gravel piles on Sunset and Geneva if you are able to fill piles near your property. Tillamook County Transportation reports that it is hard to fix paved roads when it is cold, but you should call and report bad potholes so they have a record of concerns.
Flooding has not been as bad as past years with the heavy rains this winter. Liane Welch of Tillamook County Transportation suggests cleaning out ditches and culverts along your property lines.

Emergency Preparedness/Evacuation:
The stairs at Section Line need work. There are missing steps and the stairs are very slippery. Does anyone have shingles that can be put on steps? Does anyone have a student needing a project? Let us know how you might be able to help us maintain the evacuation routes. Donations toward materials can be made through our web page or by check.

Maintaining Easement and Road Clearance Reminder:
An emergency response vehicle was recently held up on a call by overgrown vegetation, eventually knocking lights off of the vehicle. The Rockaway Beach Fire Department and Nedonna Rural Fire District remind property owners that they are responsible for maintaining clearance of easement and height above roads up to 15ft. County crews can cut or trim without notifying the property owner.

Dune Grading Every Two Years:
The Beachfront Homeowners organize to have the foredune maintained by grading every two years. This is not a project of the NBNA but the association does contribute to cover costs of including the beach access points in the project. For information about the research behind the project, you can look at the Rockaway / Nedonna Beach Foredune Management Study of February 1986
