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.

Jonah Dart-McLean and Katie Madison

Jonah Dart-McLean is our Parks Maintenance Supervisor.  Jonah’s department oversees 40 plus park sites, a fully operational cemetery, set-up and care for five softball/ baseball fields and the maintenance and care of six buildings (which includes maintenance at the Astoria Aquatic Center).  While this would be enough to keep a large crew busy from day to day, Jonah manages to keep all of these sites and facilities running smoothly with a very small staff.  Over the summer, this included one additional full-time staff, plus two to three part-time temporary staff.  Jonah is exceedingly organized and goes to great lengths to ensure each and every one of our facilities and sites are safe.


Katie Madison is one of our preschool Sunflower teachers at Lil' Sprouts. She works hard with her co-teachers to help create fun, engaging lessons and activities for the kids. Katie is a big team player and is someone you can always on count and will help out her co-teachers and other classrooms in any way she can. Her positive attitude and friendly smile is a huge asset to the Lil' Sprouts team.

Thank you both!
