Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
NCRD’s monthly board meeting is tonight, 6pm! Please join via zoom (link found at or in person at NCRD. Given the magnitude of choices we will soon face, it is imperative we, as the voting community, be engaged and involved now more than ever. Here is what I am watching: the search for a permanent Executive Director for NCRD; the Special Districts election in May (3 seats available on the board); the bond measure for the Nehalem Bay Health District ( in May; the NCRD Operations Tax Levy in late fall; the ongoing new pool project; the SWOT project; the PAC/stage accessibility Project. If you have any questions you’d like me to ask on your behalf, please forward to, by 5pm.

These are my questions:
1. Has the search for a new Executive Director begun? If not, when will it begin? How long did it take to find our ED the last time?
2. Have the 2 final candidates, not chosen for the ED position, been contacted to interview or apply again? If so, what was their response? If not, why not?
3. The SWOT presentation/exercise was public, will the SWOT comprehensive report/recommendations from the SDAO be made public? If so, by when? Who will be implementing the recommendations?
4. It was implied last month there was a possible solution to address the lack of stage accessibility for those with mobility concerns in the PAC? What is the status? If this is not accurate, will a committee dedicated to this issue now be formed? By when?
5. There are 3 open seats on the board for the May election, Mary G. indicated early she will be running. Wally B & Jennifer H, please share your intentions of running, or not.
6. If there’s time, I’m curious. What policies has this board written in the last 10+ years?
