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 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.
During a July 2021 inspection, the City discovered cracks and movement in the retaining wall on the east side of the northern approach to the North Shore Road Bridge, which supports the approaching roadway. In October, the design team will begin performing detailed testing and analysis of the retaining wall and surrounding area to determine the extent of the defects.
To maintain safety, the bridge and roadway remain closed to vehicular traffic until the structural analysis and any recommended repairs are completed. At this preliminary stage, we are hoping to reopen the bridge in spring 2022, however this is subject to change.
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.
Join us this year for "8 Days of Kindness" and support the Lake Oswego Meals-on-Wheels (LOMOW) program.
From November 17-24 stop by the New Seasons Market in Mtn. Park to pick up your Thanksgiving necessities. Then, once your shopping is done, simply donate at the register to support LOMOW.
Everyone's holidays will be brighter celebrating 8 Days of Kindness!

In November, the City will be conducting a community survey. The goal of the 2021 community survey is to:
- Measure general attitude of residents toward City services and programs
- Determine residents’ priorities and areas of concern
- Receive feedback on key policy issues
- Measure City’s progress towards other cities benchmarks
The survey will be mailed to a limited number of households selected at random. In addition, the survey will be available to all community members online.
