Fall Bazaar & Craft Fair - Nov. 8, 2014


Do you have a craft or ware that you think would be a good fit for this event? We'd like to hear from you!

9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8th at Chehalem Senior Center


The Fall Bazaar has become a tradition in Newberg, and we are proud of it. We hope that you would like to become a part of this tradition, too.  Last year’s festival was a great success, allowing us to reach more than 600 visitors, while raising money to support the Chehalem Senior Center. With 40 local artisans on display, food and desserts in abundance, over 40 gift baskets raffled, and 8 silent auction items won, it is no surprise that visitors of all ages enjoyed their experience. 

CPRD is excited to announce the 9th Annual Fall Bazaar and Craft Show to be held at Chehalem Senior Center in Newberg. This year’s event will bring back all of the community’s favorite activities from the past, including our senior silent auction and basket raffles.

Measure 36-170: Chehalem Aquatic and Fitness Center renovation will be on November ballot


Measure 36-170


The CPRD Board of Directors has voted to put a $19.9 million bond measure on the November 2014 ballot for the renovation of Chehalem Aquatic and Fitness Center. 


This effort is being led by Chehalem Pool Committee, a volunteer group of interested citizens. The facility, built in 1970, is in need of basic infrastructure updates. The group has plans to expand it to include modern features and amenities. Details will be coming. The CPC is glad to speak to your group and share information. Visit their website at http://savechehalempool.com.

If approved, this measure would fund the redevelopment of CPRD's 44-year-old community swimming pool facility. Specifically, the bond is expected to fund:

  • Replacing out-of-date machinery to improve energy efficiency;
  • Replacing structurally deficient cement and rebar infrastructure;
  • Redeveloping pool facility to meet current demand and reduce overcrowding;
  • Improved pool design to provide better safety for students and seniors;
  • Construction of additional space for regional school swim meets;
  • REnovations for ADA compliance;
  • Demolition of existing out-of-date structures and renovation and improvement of fitness section and acquisition of new equipment;
  • Parking and sire improvements and furnishings and equipment related to the pool redevelopment; 
  • Citizen oversight would be required.


Bonds mature in 21 years or less from issuance and can be in more than one series. The average annual tax rate for bonds is estimated to be approximately $.45 per $1,000 of assessed property value or $45.00 annually for a home with an assessed value of $100,000. Results may differ based on actual interest rates incurred and growth in assessed value.
