An early draft of the update to the City’s Urban and Community Forestry Plan (UCFP) has been completed. The UCFP brings together policies, practices, and plans related to Lake Oswego’s urban forest and serves as a planning and policy tool for managing our urban forest.
The City Council will review subsequent drafts of the UCFP this winter, with final adoption of the plan in Spring 2024.
The City of Lake Oswego is in the process of updating its existing Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (NHMP) and is seeking input on the draft 2024 Lake Oswego NHMP.
The NHMP identifies natural hazards that may impact Lake Oswego and provides the CIty with a set of goals, action items, and resources designed to reduce risk from future natural disaster events. With re-adoption of the plan, Lake Oswego will maintain its eligibility to apply for federal funding towards natural hazard mitigation projects.
Update as of February 29, 2024 - 4:00 p.m.
