City News & Announcements
The Lake Oswego City Council has referred proposed ballot measure 3-575 to voters for the November 2 election.
Proposed ballot measure 3-575 would allow additional protections for an identified list of parks and natural spaces, including prohibiting construction of new athletic facilities, commercial logging, construction of new public streets and roads, and construction or installation of new telecommunications facilities in designated Natural Areas. The proposed measure would allow the City to address issues the community has identified, including maintenance and upkeep, accessibility for people of various abilities, preparing for climate change, and fire prevention measures.
The City of Lake Oswego has two convenient ballot drop sites for voters:
- City Hall, 380 A Avenue - located on the upper parking lot near the main (A Avenue) entrance.
- Westlake Park, 14165 Bunick Drive - located south of the covered park area on the lane that connects to Melrose Street.
Both ballot boxes are located outdoors, are available 24/7, and allow you to cast your vote from the comfort of the driver’s seat of your car.
Ballot boxes will remain open until 8 p.m. on Elections day.
The City is planning a new Recreation and Aquatic Center on the Municipal Golf Course property at 17525 Stafford Road. The project team has updated the design to reflect the community’s desire for a larger facility and direction from City Council.
For project update and to view the latest conceptual designs, please attend the second community meeting on Wednesday, November 10, from 6-8 p.m. This meeting will be held using Zoom.
On Thursday, November 11, join the City and the Lake Oswego Veterans Memorial in honoring those that have served. The program features a keynote from US Naval Reserve Commander Eric Schuck, a flyover from the West Coast Ravens, a Presentation of Colors from the Lake Oswego Honor Guard, and more.
This Veterans Day event will begin at 11 a.m. at the LO Veterans Memorial at Foothills Park.
Each year, in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, New Seasons Market holds an all-stores fundraiser to raise money for organizations that provide meals to seniors and help fight food insecurity and isolation in our neighborhoods.
