On January 4, City Council proclaimed January 17, 2022, as Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The main source of lead in drinking water is typically from household plumbing or components associated with service lines. We offer free lead testing to our water customers. If you are concerned about the levels of lead in your home, you can pick up a test kit and instructions at the 2nd floor reception desk at City Hall. For questions about lead testing or your drinking water, call the Water Treatment Plant at 503-635-0394.
Winter storms or other events can cause prolonged power outages. PGE has improved their outage map to make it easier to get the information you need and report an outage or downed line.
Learn about food safety during an outage, protecting your electrical equipment, and more.

The City is continuing to move forward with a multiyear project to align Lake Oswego housing needs and neighborhood context with new state legislation (HB 2001) that requires cities to allow duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, townhouses, and cottage clusters – also known as “middle housing” – in all areas where single family housing is currently permitted.
The City has launched a Middle Housing StoryMap and Survey as a part of its continuing work to adopt codes that comply with HB 2001 and are consistent with the community’s sense of place, neighborhood character, and livability.
Review the StoryMap to learn more about middle housing.
