The Nedonna Beach Neighborhood Association would like to invite you to join/rejoin our membership in 2021. If you have not previously been a member or are new to our community, please consider joining our Association.
“The purpose of the NBNA is to help build the Nedonna Beach community, facilitate members communicating with each other, and to provide a voice for community concerns. The NBNA is a true grassroots, volunteer-run organization.” – http://www.nedonnabeach.org/about-us/
Although our scope is limited, we have made substantial contributions to the Nedonna Beach neighborhood. In the fifteen years since the NBNA began we have accomplished some significant things for a non-regulatory organization focusing on communication and networking around common concerns.
Committee Opportunities include:
Roads – join work crews on pre-scheduled days
Neighborhood Watch – keep an eye out in your part of the neighborhood and report concerns
Emergency Preparedness and Evacuation Routes – join work crews on pre-scheduled days
Nedonna Marsh – support efforts in a variety of ways
As we move into our 12th year, we realize we have many new neighbors and it is time to intentionally build our membership and we want to reach out to members interested in being involved with committees as volunteers. We invite you to join us if you are a new property owner and encourage you to invite your neighbors if they are new to our neighborhood.
If you are looking for ways to be involved with our community, to engage your family in community service, or to support the efforts of the Association, there are a variety of committees needing people with diverse skill sets.
Accomplishments of the NBNA include:
The NBNA manages an email list serving our members and disseminating neighborhood information. We share weather warnings, Neighborhood Watch announcements, and timely news items about Nedonna Beach. We manage a facebook page and participate at Nedonna Beach on Nextdoor.
The NBNA has a representative on the Rockaway Beach Preparedness Team and a representative attending Tillamook County Roads meetings. We have liaisons with the Neah Kah Nie School District, State and County Parks, The City of Rockaway Beach,Nedonna Marsh, and the Nedonna Rural Fire District.
Coordination of the “Wintering in Nedonna” group of full time residents creating a communication network between those who live in Nedonna Beach Year round. It is good to know how far the next neighbor is when the lights go out.
The NBNA maintains a line of communication with both Rockaway Beach Police and the Tillamook County Sheriff. All departments provide increased patrols, if case loads allow, on busy weekends and holidays. Both departments make multiple daily drive throughs in Nedonna.
Neighbors worked to rebuild emergency exits at Riley and Section Line. We have two emergency shelters beside both water towers (Riley to Scenic Drive and Beach/East of 101) for placement of personal emergency kits. This year we will improve track crossing points and repair or replace our storage units. (Photo of Trails and Stair work)
The NBNA completed tsunami evacuation route signage and “no overnight parking” signage at Section Line and Beach parking area. (picture of no parking or you are here sign)
We partner with the Rockaway Beach Volunteer Fire Department and Nedonna Fire District for communication of safety issues, to maintain emergency fire lanes to the beach from Section Line Road, and to maintain all beach access points. A goal we have this year is to manage the beach access trails from Beach Avenue to the beach. These trails provide access for emergency response and provide a fire break between properties on the beach front.
The Fire Level sign at our Hwy 101 entrance was paid for and is maintained with Association funds, along with signage at beach access points and neighborhood watch signs. (Photo of Fire Sign)
Maintenance of unimproved roads and communication with Tillamook County about paved roads. The NBNA maintains a gravel pile at the corner of Park and Geneva for use by neighbors for filling potholes. We facilitate an annual roads project each spring. Road maintenance projects that are funded by membership dues and donations. (Picture of Gravel Pile)
The roads committee is working with Rockaway Beach Fire to identify and clear problematic areas where roads are inaccessible to properties blocked by overgrowth. (picture of overhang)
Dumpster and Chemical Toilet at Beach and Section Line
Thanks to the generous donations from the neighborhood, we have been able to place a chemical toilet and dumpster at Section Line. We have asked State and County parks to partner in the costs, for as long as needed.
As a board, we meet every couple of months. Our annual, membership-wide meeting is traditionally scheduled each year to coincide with the July 4th holiday. We’ll continue to be involved in an informational manner in land use issues that impact Nedonna Beach. Membership dues per family are $20 for the year, January – December.
