The local north county grassroots group supporting the Nehalem Bay Health District bond measure has scheduled several community meetings prior to the May 16 election.
The public is invited to all the events to hear about the Health District’s three-part proposal to improve local health and senior care.
White Clover Grange – April 15 at 2:00 pm
Virtual Town Hall – April 19 at 5:30 pm
NCRD Town Halls April 23 at 2:00 pm and May 3 at 5:00 pm
The plan includes construction of a new, state-of-the-art Nehalem Bay Health District and Pharmacy, a medical facility that will provide the needed space to provide specialty health care services not currently available in the community.
The Health District is also planning to renovate and modernize the Nehalem Valley Care Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility, to improve the care and safety of seniors who need 24-hour nursing care.
And the bond measure will support site preparation leading to workforce housing focused on the community housing needs of medical and other essential workers.
