McClure and Shively Parks Open House April 11, 2017 at 5:30PM
Fri, Mar 17, 2017

ASTORIA OR, March 28:  The City of Astoria together with Parks planning consultants from GreenWorks and Angelo Planning Group will hold a public open house meeting at Shively Park on Tuesday, April 11 starting at 5:30 pm to discuss McClure Park and Shively Park proposed Master Plans.  There will be a presentation on both parks at 6:00 pm followed by questions, answers, comments, and discussion.  The Astoria City Council identified planning for these two parks as a priority in the recently adopted City-wide Astoria Parks Comprehensive Master Plan. Individual Master Plans for these parks will address future plans for development and/or redevelopment of these two parks.

A first round of public open house meetings was held in March and provided community members the opportunity to comment on how these two Parks should be maintained and/or improved in the future.  

This second round of public open house meetings will provide community members the opportunity to review and comment on optional plans presented by the planning team. Final draft Master Plans will be presented to the City Council for consideration later this year.

The draft Plans will include ideas concerning:  

  • Preferred uses and activities
  • Maintenance of natural features 
  • Safety considerations 
  • Construction and/or maintenance of Park amenities
  • Access to the Parks 

 Light refreshments will be provided.

Gad Perez

Gad started about 8 months ago after hearing that we needed help.  Gad has always valued the good community work that Parks brings to Astoria and wanted to get involved. Since that time, she has branched into many roles here at the Aquatic Center; one of the biggest is that of Lead Cashier.

 

Lead Cashier is responsible for helping hire and train front desk staff, manage the point of sales system, and also invoices our major public accounts. She is constantly making improvements to our point of sales system in order to increase efficiency at the front desk - which translates to better customer service. In that short amount of time, she has also become a certified lifeguard and a lead guard because she understands what it means to be a team player and is always willing to help out when needed.

 

Thank You,Gad, for everything you do for Astoria Parks and Recreation.
