CASCADIA: READY OR NOT PRESENTATION - THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 6-8 PM, CITY HALL COUNCIL CHAMBERS While most people know that California gets frequent earthquakes, they may not know that Oregon is at risk from very large earthquakes. These earthquakes on the Cascadia Subduction Zone can be over 9.0 magnitude and have a region-wide impact. The Cascadia Subduction Zone represents the single largest hazard to the people and built environment of Oregon. On September 25, Dr. Althea Rizzo, the Geological Hazard Program Coordinator at the Oregon Office of Emergency Management, will cover the latest understanding on the natural hazard and its expected impact on Oregon. Learning how to prepare and protect your family, home and business starts by attending this presentation. Being able to recover quickly from a catastrophic event is a choice that needs to be made before the event. This is a free presentation but because space is limited, pre-registration is required. Contact Bonnie Hirshberger at bhirshberger@ci.oswego.or.us or 503-675-3992, to register. CAR & BOAT SHOW SUNDAY, AUGUST 17, FROM 10 A.M.

The rear passenger, 4-year old Keyilee Johns, was thrown from the motorcycle onto the southbound lanes. Without hesitation, Sunny immediately stopped her vehicle and, with no regard for her own personal safety, ran back to Most bridges in Oregon built prior to 1990, the year modern seismic design specifications for bridges were developed, are vulnerable to a major earthquake. The largest portion of the existing (State) bridge inventory was built prior to 1970.

Solicitation for any purposes, e.g., for-profit business, non-profit organization, charitable entity, or political candidate or measure, must be conducted in accordance with LOC 34.16.910-.950. Solicitation includes visual, verbal, or written (flyers, handouts, brochures, etc.) communications. Did you know that unless you have a “No Solicitation” sign posted (one that meets Lake Oswego Code requirements), a person can solicit at your residence between the hours of 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., daylight savings time or between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. standard time? It is unlawful to solicit on residential property at any time if a sign is posted on or near the property boundaries at the normal points of entry that contains the words “No Solicitation” and the reference “LOC 34.16.920(4)” in characters no less than ½ inch high. The sign must be at least 6 inches high by 8 inches wide. For your convenience, signs that meet these requirements are available for $5 at the Finance Department at City Hall. Violations may be reported to the Lake Oswego Police at 503-635-0238 (all hours). For more information on door-to-door solicitation, go to www.ci.oswego.or.us/finance/door-door-solicitation. LEARN TO SAVE A LIFE WITH CPR ANYTIME! Join the Lake Oswego Fire and Police Departments for a special hands-only CPR Training! At the Sounds of Summer Concert at Westlake Park on Wednesday, August 13, from 6:30-8:15 p.m., Public Safety Officers will teach the basics of CPR Anytime - a unique program developed by the American Heart Association that teaches the core skills of CPR in just 25 minutes.

For additional information, please contact Jamie Inglis at jinglis@ci.oswego.or.us or 503-675-3985. LOCATE MARKINGS Wondering what those orange, pink, red, blue, green or white markings are on the roadway? These markings identify public utility mains which are underground. These mains may include lines for telephones, electricity distribution, natural gas, cable television, fiber optics, traffic lights, street lights, storm drains, water mains, and wastewater pipes. If you find locate markings on or near your property and want to know what work is planned, use the one-call Search & Status database to find out who requested the locates and what work they are planning to do: http://www.managetickets.com/SearchStatus/. Also, if you want to dig, make sure you know what’s underground - call 811. ILLEGAL SIGNS & VISUAL POLLUTION Illegal signs (attached to utility poles, traffic signs and placed in the medians) planter boxes, boulders, boat trailers, basketball hoops are all left in the public right-of way and are a growing problem in our community. These objects endanger the public, impede the flow of pedestrian or vehicular traffic and contribute to “visual pollution.” The public right-of right way is intended to provide additional surface for safer travel whether pedestrian or vehicular, temporary parking and accessibility to utilities. It is a violation to use it as private property, permanent storage, or the extension and installation of permanent landscaping that reduces or eliminates public access or endangers the public’s safety. Please be a good steward of our community and help maintain a safe and beautiful city. If you are unsure about the use of the public right-of-way adjacent to your property, contact the Traffic Engineering staff at 503-635- 0270 or aowings@ci.oswego.or.us.
