Operating sustainably means that we are leaving a legacy for the community of Lake Oswego and the planet.

The lives of everyone who lives, works, and conducts business in Lake Oswego are enriched by a wide range of choices in transportation, housing, recreation, and culture. Our infrastructure is sound, our finances stable, and our citizens and employees healthy and engaged.
