Upcoming & Ongoing Projects

Nedonna Beach Neighborhood Associations uses annual membership dues & donation funds for projects that continue to make Nedonna Beach a wonderful and safe place to live and visit. Thank you to our very generous donors! Read more about our upcoming and ongoing projects:

The evacuation facilities at Scenic View and at McMillan Reservoir were purchased and stocked by the NBNA. The committee is preparing to install shelves and stock each structure with emergency supplies. We are working to establish a rope and post trail at Section Line in case the stairs fail in a slide. Railroad Crossing Points will be improved by Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad this summer, making it easier to cross when using the evacuation trails.

The recent tsunami advisory in January 2022 was a good reminder of the importance of being prepared to respond to a variety of emergencies that we face here in Nedonna. It is never a bad idea to walk the evacuation routes with your family and to make sure you have supplies ready in a “Go Bag”.
NBNA dues fund the work we do on our evacuation trails, storage shelters at evacuation points, and basic supplies at the evacuation points. Members are able to put their own plastic containers of items in the shelter of their choice. Those who have items in the storage will have access information to get in to the the structure.
The Nedonna Rural Fire Protection District (paid for by our property taxes) has funded improved crossing points at the railroad tracks at Section Line and Riley Street. They funded a new structure at McMillan Creek. They provide funds for an annual mailing to all properties in Nedonna Beach that includes maps and evacuation information.
The pictures below show our facilities. The brown one is at Scenic View and the tan one is at McMillan Creek.

Please email NBNA at nedonna.beach@gmail.com if you would like to be involved in neighborhood watch! We had our first neighborhood watch meeting via zoom and are still in need of participants. Topics discussed were: placing neighborhood watch signs throughout the neighborhood, assigning a neighborhood watch “lead” for each street, setting up a phone tree, and creating a private Facebook group for NBNA members.

As of now, we are determining where neighborhood watch signs should be placed and get approval from the city and county before ordering. A private Facebook group will be set up through the Nedonna Beach Facebook page and invites will be sent out to NBNA members once set up.

An email blast will be sent out to NBNA members for the next meeting. Hope to see you at the next one!

There is no question that day trippers to our neighborhood need bathroom facilities. Unfortunately, the cost of putting in and maintaining a real toilet facility is currently beyond the budget of the NBNA.  Instead, what we can do is pay for a Porto-Potty. They are located at the corner of Section Line and Beach drive and will remain through the summer. We are also working with the county and state parks to coordinate garbage collection.

Thank you to neighbors who have done tree work to increase clearance along the gravel roads! This improves emergency access. You will see the fire department in the neighborhood from time to time as they test these routes.

Paved roads are maintained by the City of Rockaway Beach and Tillamook County. The gravel roads are unmaintained county roads. NBNA donations cover annual road work that includes grading and spreading gravel. We have a pile of gravel available for potholes at Park. If you live on a gravel road and would like to order extra gravel to be spread, contact us and we will coordinate delivery and spread it. Neighbor John Copely is coordinating this work.

We have been working to improve the East/West access trails between Beach Drive and the beach. Our current project is the trail at Park Street. Look for improved signs along Beach Ave to include water and fire safety reminders!

Donations cover mowing and care of the entry to Nedonna Beach. The entry and fire levels signs purchased by the NBNA. The fire level sign is monitored by the Nedonna Rural Fire DIstrict in partnership with the Rockaway Beach Fire Department.

The NBNA has been working with the Tillamook County Museum to place a few benches at key locations in the marsh. Benches will have Memorial Plaques to honor individual Nedonna Beach Neighbors and will be funded by donations.

We welcome Kimberly Brown as our webmaster! Look for updates!

Your donations are at work! The NBNA budget is based on dues, donations, and community partnerships. Thank you for your continued support for future projects and those that have already been accomplished. With your help, we can keep Nedonna Beach a pleasant place to live and visit.

The NBNA does not have full non-profit status and we are not eligible for many grants that could help us with our work. We would love some assistance from anyone who has experience with the process to coach us through. If interested, please contact us by clicking here!
