Dan Hauser, CEO of North- west Pacific Railroad, told the Reveille that work had again resumed on the project as fund- ing had been arranged to pay for the new ties and the labor.

July 9, 1997 Vol. CXVIII, Issue 28 35 Cents United Church seeks donations to help with $20-$30,000 in repairs The trustees in charge of the mainten of the United Church of Gloverdale (other- wise known as the ivy covered church located at 439 N. Clo- verdale Blvd.) recently had to make a difficult, yet necessary decision. Th tee weeks ago they had the ivy cut back to the stonework of the church. The ivy, which had been cut back in 1995, had once again covered the church, filling the gutters, squeezing itself un- der the shingled siding-pry- ing it off, and attacking the roof that hadjustbeen repaired two years ago. The decision to cut back the ivy is a difficult one because of the beautiful picture it cre- ates--especiallyin the fall when its leaves turn crimson and gold--making the church a fa- vorite attraction of beth resi- dents and tourists alike. According to Trustee Jerry Huot, he has heard some resi- dents complain that the ivy should have remained intact until the winter so everyone would have a chance to enjo the beautiful fall colors. " However, Huot explains, the ivy and woodpeckers had caused such severe damage to the shingle siding--water leak- age is occurring to the build- ing during storms and the problem needs to be rectified before this winter. Huot is unsure if the ivy will be allowed to grow over the church again. =My guess is the majority of trustees don't want it to grow over it," he said. An option is to allow the ivy to only cover the stonework, but then it would have to be trimmed back probably three times a year. The trustees have received bids from in and out of town for the repair project. "We're talking around $20,000 to $30,000 depending on what needs to be done. They have to clean the shingles which in- dudes scraping and pressure washing. They'll have to re- place shingles in some places, and stain them or bleach them to get the color similar," he saJ Because the ivy is so inva- The ivy covering the United Church had to be removed so contrac- tors could give bids on damage caused by the ivy and woodpeck- ers. Church trustees hope the work will be completed before the winter rains come. save, Huot says workers will be lucky to get 80 percent of the plant material off the shingles. The most damaged area of the church is the bell tower and the south side of the building. Community Outreach The United Church provides invaluable services to Clover- dale--including the thrift shop located on the church grounds that was started in 1979, provid- ing goods at reasonable prices. The Food Pantry, begun in 1989, provides food to those who need it on Fridays from 1-3 pro. Minister of Music Janice Timm directs several choirs at the church--both adult and chil- dren. Many of the children un- der Timm's direction are not members of the United Church, but belong to other churches where they sing. The Women's Fellowship supports many worthy causes including Family Service, the Visiting Nurses Association, and more. Where did the ivy come from? The church was the first or- ganized in Cloverdale and was built in the fall of 1869. The building originally measured Ptea turn to back page Senior Center project moves forward here Some activity is taking place to develop plans for a new Senior Center to be located on a City lot on N. Main St. City Councilman Jim Teague met with the Board of Directors of the Senior Center to inform them that the City is looking into hiring an architect to draw up plans for the Center. In response to his message the Board appointed a building Com- mittee charged with the task of developing a surveyof local Se- niors to determine what they would like the new facility to include. Gordon Bryan is chairman of the committee and members are Elizabeth Grange and Helen Stewart. The City purchased the N. Main Street property consisting of two 50 foot lots, from Cal- Trans and restricted its use fora Senior Center. Del Webb Corporation has pledged $25,000 to fund the building foundation and a park- ing lot. Off-site work begins for Del Webb project North Coast Construction, Santa Rosa, has begun work on off-site improvements for the Clover Springs subdivision which is in line to become a Del Webb development. John Barella, one of the three Land Partners who own the prop erty, the old Moulton Ranch on S. Cloverdale Blvd. has been granted authority by the City to work on a number of off-site im- provements that will serve the development. The work now under construc- tion is an upsized sewer main between Brookside and Clark. Another new sewer line will be installed on Lyle Lane and an extension of Brookside Dr. con- structed. A 2000 foot offsite water main will be installed from Hot Springs Road to Elbridge and a 500,000 gallon reservoir will be built on the Furber tank site. Another water line is to be upsized be- tween South and Tarman streets. , ,, ,, , H, , ' ' "' "' Planners to hear pp ve reports on Furber City Council a rovals mo and Blvd. projects Dei Webb project forward Planning DirectorJoeHeckel will give status reports on the Furber Development and the Cloverdale's City Council ap- proved (in a 4-1 vote) the Prelim- inary Development Plan and Tentative Map for Phases I & II of the Del Webb project, an action that now opens the way for two more July hearings on the Development Agreement July 14 and the Precise Develop ment Plan for Phase I July 23. The dissenting vote was cast by Vice-Mayor Robert Jehn who was supportive of the Planning Commission's recommendation that Banderia Way be extended into the project. The Council voted 3-2 (Chase & Jehn castg no votes) to keep Bandiera Way access for emergency vehicles only. The Council and Commission- ere were unanimous, however, in their approval of the over all plan presented by Del Webb to build a over-55 0dult communi- ty on the Moulton Ranch proper- ty on S. Cloverdale Blvd. The property was to be developed as a mixed housing subdivision known as Clover Springs. Once all of the planning re- quirements have been met and the project is ready to go the Land Partners, present owners will prepare the property for development. At that time Del Webb will step in and purchase the property and begin to sell lots and build homes. The Development agreement to be considered by the Council July 14 will cover financing terms, timing of the infrastruc- ture and establishing a schedule for future reimbursement to the developers of infrastructure costs as other development comes on line. The hearing will also cover the park land proposal wherein Del Webb will provide financing for improvements at Furber Park in lieu-of constructing a public park in the adult community project. The City will enter into a three-way contract with the Land Partners and Del Webb. On July 23 the Council will consider the precise plan for Phase I covering 174 lots that will deal with the home designs, landscaping and other concerns. The Planning Commission will consider both plans at each meet- ing prior'to the City Council's hearing. The July 14 meeting is scheduled at City Hall with the Planning Commission convert- ingin council chambers at 5 p.m. to be followed by the Council meeting at 7 p.m. Location and time of the July 23 meeting will be announced.
