This requires consideration of both long-term and short- term effects on ecological, economic, and community systems. Operating sustainably means that we are leaving a legacy for the community of Lake Oswego and the planet. A sustainable Lake Oswego is a place recognized nationally as a model of livability—a unified city with a vital downtown, a strong sense of neighborhoods, and a harmonious relationship with the natural environment. 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.

Republic Services will also be undergoing their midterm review soon and have asked for a 10 year extension to their franchise agreement. Approval of Minutes The Board unanimously approved the January 8, 2018 meeting minutes. Public Comment Olga asked why so many items here that have a recycle symbol on them are not actually recyclable. Jenny explained how recycling in Lake Oswego is setup. Regular Business A. Review Agenda Chair Eliot Metzger reviewed the meeting agenda. B. City Council Update Councilor LaMotte shared items from the latest City Council meetings: • Flag lots approved • Civic center design moving along • Still looking at Parks and Rec. No decision on pool yet • Boones Ferry-95%done on construction documents • Short term rentals coming back for Council input • Looking at sensitive lands in HOAs • Karl asked if there will be renewable energy on the 3rd and B project. Not sure if that will happen. C. CAP Open House and Study Session Jenny reviewed details about how the Open House on February 20 and Council Study Session on February 27 will work.The Open House will be a free flowing event, with members of the public able to move between sections of the plan and comment.The individuals who wrote each section will provide input and answer questions. The study session will not include a resolution or a vote.Jenny and Eliot will go over key parts of the staff report and then answer questions from Councilors. D. Plastic Bag Ban Jenny went through the various aspects to consider for a plastic bag ban in Lake Oswego. After looking through other city ordinances, she summarized the: • Rationale for a ban-environmental considerations, pollution, burden on recycling and solid waste systems • Potential Scope of a ban-weight of bags, whether to include foam, whether to include takeout restaurant bags, exempting SNAP or WIC customers from any charge for paper bags, retail only or retail, restaurant, and events • Timing- phased system- large retailers within 6 months, all retailers within 1 year • Potential impact on businesses- most large retailers (supermarkets, drug stores) already compile with ban in Portland. Many others already do not offer plastic (New Seasons,Trader Joes, 365). Small retailers, particularly restaurants,would like be most impacted • Avenues of Assistance- partner with Chamber to sell more "Shop in LO" reusable bags, setup bag swap in city facilities and supermarkets, provide additional funding to Farmers Market for more reusable bags • Outreach-Consider: public forum, online polling, city council hearing. Focus on barriers and the "guilt" factor E. Bike Sharing Bob Sack gave a presentation on the potential for bike sharing in Lake Oswego. Bob explained what bike sharing is and how it works, and why it would or wouldn't work in LO. Potential challenges include low density, older population, bike infrastructure not developed, hills, and easy parking and driving. Reasons why bike sharing would work includes, recreational biking is popular, decent bike facilities, might alleviate first and last mile connectivity issues. Bike sharing can promote bike culture and the Lake Grove/Kruse Way area most promising for bike sharing. Kruse Way area is basically a corporate campus-20 buildings owned by Shorenstein. Employees in these buildings could ride to Kruse Village and Boones Ferry.Shorenstein has info about bike sharing on their sustainability page. City of Lake Oswego Sustainability Advisory Board Minutes Page 2 of 3 February 12, 2018 Looking forward, Bob suggesting doing a Feasibility Study along with surveys of employees and businesses in the Kruse Way area.The program would likely be paid for by the City, but sponsorship agreements can be looked into. Would likely need to setup a non-profit to contract with a bike share vendor.The project might need to wait until after Boones Ferry project.Would need buy-in from Kruse Way and Lake Grove businesses Adjournment Chair Eliot Metzger adjourned the meeting at 8:40 p.m. Respectfully submitted, Jenny Slepian Sustainability and Management Analyst City of Lake Oswego Sustainability Advisory Board Minutes Page 3 of 3 February 12, 2018
