PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE <br /> Mayor Studebaker led the Council in the Pledge of Allegiance. <br /> 4. CITIZEN COMMENT <br /> • Tom Archer, 801 SW Atwater Rd, Lake Oswego <br /> Mr. Archer spoke to the safety on SW Atwater Rd, particularly at night. The hill has a steep <br /> slope and very little ambient light so drivers have difficulty seeing the edge of the road. He had <br /> assisted two drivers out of the swale and one needed to be towed out. The swale on both sides <br /> of the road showed damage from other mishaps. He had spoken to City staff who agreed that <br /> visual boundaries were needed, but they also said nothing could be done until after the start of <br /> the new budget year which began on July 1st, though some interim measure might be available <br /> such as reflectors or a minimum of striping. He preferred a long-term solution, but offered to <br /> install reflectors himself if the City provided the materials. Councilor Manz asked for the <br /> specific location of the portion of Atwater Rd he was referring to, noting that most of the road <br /> appeared to belong to the County. Mr. Archer noted the top, flat portion of the road was in the <br /> county, but at the crest of the hill, the south side was incorporated into the city. The road section <br /> of concern was long before the bend toward Iron Mountain, about 300 ft to 400 ft from the new <br /> road to the stop sign. Although there was a light at the Atwater Rd/Boca Raton Dr intersection, it <br /> was not visible from the top of the hill and did not provide sufficient light for driving.
