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.

City Council Update/City Council Goals Update No City Council Update. C. Stormwater Permit Renewal Process- Anne MacDonald Anne MacDonald gave a presentation on the MS4 (Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System) permit from DEQ to discharge stormwater. Anne went over the details of the City's permit, including what are permitted as stormwater treatment facilities, monitoring, and reporting. As part of the permit renewal requirements, the City is required to seek public input on the monitoring plan, management plan, and TMDL benchmarks. Anne is looking for comments from advisory boards who have certain perspectives to share with the City. Karl asked about the mitigation of large amounts of runoff from properties. Private developers are meant to mitigate on their site. The CIP provides funding for stormwater treatment as streets and roads are rebuilt. Karl asked about rainwater harvesting and whether it is encouraged. Anne said it is encouraged, but rainwater capture here happens outside of the growing season, so you need a lot of storage capacity. Anne said incentives are hard because we don't have a very large surface water fee. Bob asked why Portland encourages people to discharge into their yards- Portland has the combined pipe, so the downpipe disconnect keeps all that water out of the combined pipe. Richard asked what the city's plan is to reduce phosphate contamination in the lake. We are working with UP right now on some bench scale tests to see if residuals from our water treatment plan can be combined with compost to be used in stormwater treatment facilities, which would absorb phosphate. Minimizing erosion helps to reduce the speed that runoff goes into the lake and gives time for phosphate to be removed. There are already high levels of phosphorus in the lake from existing sediments and the Tualatin River. Richard asked if it's true that when runoff with fertilizers from yards goes into the city's pipes it goes into the lake. It is true, so really the solution is to encourage people to not use fertilizers. Lisa asked if Anne works with the Watershed Council. Over the permit term, the city has given $140,000 to the watershed council. Watershed Councils work on private land, the City does not. Stephanie asked about anti -degradation- are the loads and limits absolutes or per capita, and are there allotments for population growth. The allotments are per water body. Stephanie asked about the trends- we are holding our own to slipping on most trends. We are doing well on bacteria, thanks in part to poop bags. Eliot asked about modelling for future events. We don't manage it very explicitly- we are a little conservative in how we set up our designed storms. Stephanie asked if there was a way to account for future storm events- not yet. D. 2017 Goals- Stakeholders and Assignments Eliot asked for feedback on the goals. Richard asked that the Board not re -invent the wheel and spend a ton of time going down the same road. After some discussion, the Board assigned the goals in the following manner: Advise and assist the City Council: Paul and Karl Assist in the development of plans and policies: Bob and Lisa Attractive Neighborhoods: Richard Climate Planning: Eliot, Richard, Lisa Adjournment Chair Eliot Metzger adjourned the meeting at 8:35 p.m. Respectfully submitted, Jenny Slepian City of Lake Oswego Sustainability Advisory Board Minutes Page 2 of 3 January 9, 2017 Sustainability and Management Analyst City of Lake Oswego Sustainability Advisory Board Minutes Page 3 of 3 January 9, 2017
