The Nedonna Beach Neighborhood Association would like to invite you to join/rejoin our membership in 2019. If you have not previously been a member or are new to our community, please consider joining our Association. Membership dues per family are only $20 for the year, January – December.
“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 twelve years since the NBNA began we have accomplished some significant things for a non-regulatory organization focusing on communication and networking around common concerns.
Accomplishments of the NBNA include:
Managing an email list serving over 300 members, disseminating neighborhood information to approximately 250 households. Through the list, we’ve posted weather warnings, Neighborhood Watch announcements, circulated pictures and information, and have sent out timely news items about Nedonna Beach.
Completed emergency exit stairs to the railroad tracks 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. We join resources with the Rockaway Beach and Nedonna Fire District to clear an emergency fire lane to the beach from Section Line Road.
A web page that includes links to current information for roads and weather, local attractions, and a list of resources for homeowners and guests.
A Facebook page gives us a presence on social media and provides current information and shares local events. Announcements are made and neighbors post about lost dogs, garage sales, and blaring septic alarms. See Nedonna Beach Neighbors on Facebook.
Nedonna Beach joined Nextdoor.com to expand opportunities for neighbors to connect with one another and to extend communication about neighborhood information.
The Nedonna Beach 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.
Organize maintenance of unimproved roads and communication with Tillamook County about paved roads. We are continuing with road maintenance efforts by looking for a new committee chair who can assist with organizing work parties.
Share information about environmental impact topics including drinking water, sensitive environments, land use, and an effort to strategize and educate in hope of eradicating the invasive sand-burr and scotch broom that has been overwhelming our lots.
Support Nedonna Beach Rural Fire District, Beachfront Homeowners Association (of Nedonna Beach), and the Neah Kah Nie School District in matters that impact the Nedonna Beach community and adjacent natural areas.
Support the Tillamook Pioneer History Museum in the acquisition of eastern portion of Nedonna Marsh and Woods for preservation.
Coordination with Oregon State Parks for the placement of the chemical toilet at the Section Line parking area.
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.
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 a board, we meet every couple of months. As a member, you are welcome to join us. Our annual, membership-wide meeting is scheduled each year to coincide with the July 4th holiday. This year’s Annual Meeting will be on Saturday, July 6, 2019. We’ll continue to be involved in an informational manner in land use issues that impact Nedonna Beach.
To join, or to maintain your membership in, the Association please return the attached form along with your membership dues. You can also join online using PayPal Donations to support specific committees or general efforts can be made through our webpage.
We are very excited about the coming year and with your help and support, we can accomplish great things.
