(North Bend, OR) –The Coos County Airport District (CCAD) is seeking interested parties to fill a position on a stakeholder board (Park Committee Application) that will oversee and guide the redevelopment of the Airport Heights Park in North Bend. The district recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Coos Bay – North Bend Rotary Club to help with the project by hiring a park planning consultant to create site plan options.
The park, located off Colorado Avenue in North Bend, encompasses approximately 13 acres. It includes a playground, baseball fields, fenced basketball and tennis courts, and a sand volleyball court. In accepting the MOU, airport commissioners decided to form a smaller steering committee to include the community at large. Commissioners will decide the committee makeup on July 27, 2023.
The oversite committee will support the project and ensure it stays on track until it is completed. The committee will also collect park users’ and community stakeholders’ input. In addition, members will review planning documents and provide regular updates to the airport commissioners, airport staff, Rotary Club members, stakeholders, and the community at large.
Community members wanting to be considered, should fill out the Park Committee Application and email it to Stephanie@flyoth.com. You can also find the application at the Administration Office inside the Airport Terminal located at 1100 Airport Lane, North Bend, OR 97459. Applications must be received by 3:00 pm on August 3, 2023. For more information, contact Stephanie Kilmer, Public Information Officer at (541) 756-8531.
CCAD is the only Airport Special District in the State of Oregon. It owns and operates 619 airside and landside acres which includes the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport, multiple leased properties, and the park.
