Sections of Kerr Parkway may be fully closed during the project. Construction is expected to continue through October. The project will include almost two miles of roadway paving plus stormwater system improvements that will channel the water into facilities to improve the water quality before returning to the watershed. In addition, existing sidewalks/pathways will be repaired and new pedestrian facilities will be built to allow for safer walking/running from Boones Ferry Road and improve connectivity to the adjacent area. The City encourages business owners to inform their employees and customers of the traffic disruptions. Updates and detour routes will be posted to the City’s project webpage: www.ci.oswego.or.us/publicworks/ kerr-parkway-rehabilitation-project. For additional information during construction, call the Construction Hotline at 503-635-0261. NEIGHBORHOOD ENHANCEMENT GRANTS PROGRAM NOW OPEN! APPLY BY JUNE 16 Neighborhoods are encouraged to apply and submit applications for funding projects by June 16. Grants are available to help support projects that bring neighborhoods together and provide a community benefit. This year, while the City is not holding a community- wide cleanup event, we are encouraging neighborhoods to take advantage of the Neighborhood Enhancement Grant opportunity to work together to create beautiful neighborhoods, recycle, reuse, donate and best of all, get to know your neighbors! To help with this effort, we have put together some helpful resources and guidelines to make your neighborhood cleanup event a success. Neighborhood Enhancement Grant funds are available for these efforts. If your neighborhood is interested in holding a neighborhood cleanup, visit the website at www. ci.oswego.or.us/planning/neighborhood-associations or call Sarah Selden, Neighborhood Planner at 503-697- 6524, to review guidelines and discuss opportunities for your neighborhood. Open House - The City will be holding an open house for this project in mid to late June. Please check the website for the specific date and time. WATER PROJECT CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC IMPACTS: IRON MTN BLVD., HWY 43 & CARMAN DRIVE Iron Mtn. Blvd. between Summit Drive and Pine Valley Rd is closed for the next two months while crews install water pipeline. The closure is in place during working hours, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please find an alternate east/west route, such as Country Club and Boones Ferry Roads, for your travels during this time. Access is maintained for local residents within the closed area and emergency traffic. On Highway 43 south of Laurel St., exploratory digging will be taking place through June from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Some minor work at intersections will occur at night.

SENSITIVE LANDS POTENTIAL REVISIONS PROGRAM One of the City Council’s goals for 2014 is to implement revisions to Lake Oswego’s Sensitive Lands program. The Sensitive Lands program is a set of land use regulations that protect streams, wetlands, and tree groves. Over the last few years, the Council has heard from many citizens who are concerned about the impact of the Sensitive Lands regulations on private property. The Council’s objective is to reduce the regulatory burden on private properties to the greatest extent possible while continuing to meet state and regional requirements for natural resource protection. In January, the Council directed staff to draft revised regulations for streams and wetlands and to provide recommendations for a voluntary, incentive-based approach to protect tree groves and other wildlife habitat areas. The Council will hold a special study session about the potential revisions to the Sensitive Lands program on Tuesday, June 10. The public is invited to attend to learn about the potential changes. The meeting will start at 6:30 PM in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 380 A Avenue. For additional information about the project, please visit www.ci.oswego.or.us/planning. 93 DAYS OF SUMMER FUN & INTERESTING THINGS TO DO IN LAKE OSWEGO DURING THE SUMMER We love summer, and we love Lake Oswego.

TIPS FOR HIRING CONTRACTORS Before hiring a contractor to perform work on your property or in the public right-of-way, there are some basic rules you should follow. • Always get a written scope of work so that you and the contractor will have a basis of expectations for the finished product. • Always get more than one quote or bid based on the scope of work. • Make sure that the contractor has a valid State Construction Contractor’s Board License, Metro Business License or State Landscape Contractors Board License. The State requires that any contractor performing work for pay, or submitting bids for work for pay, have one of these licenses. In order to have a valid license, the contractor must have insurance and a bond. The insurance and bond offer protection not only to the contractor but also to you as a business or homeowner should something go wrong with your project. Below are the website links for the licensing agencies: Construction Contractors Board https://ccbed.ccb.state.or.us/ccb_frames/consumer_ info/ccb_index.htm Metro Business License www.oregonmetro.gov/index.cfm/go/by.web/id/19982 Oregon Landscape Contractors Board www.oregonlcb.com/contractorsearch/ contractorsearch.aspx BOARD & COMMISSION VACANCIES YOUTH MEMBERS WANTED Attention all high school sophomores and juniors looking for an opportunity to serve the community and improve the quality of life in their hometown. The Lake Oswego City Council invites you to apply for a youth member position on one of six different advisory boards. These volunteer positions connect students with their fellow citizens and offer a front row seat to the workings of various parts of local government. For more information, go to www.ci.oswego.or.us/ boc/boards-commissions-vacancies, or contact the City Manager’s Office at 503-635-0215. Applications can be filled out online. INTERESTED IN LESS EXPENSIVE LEDs? Lake Oswego Sustainability Network Energy Workgroup and members of the Sustainability Advisory Board are working on a project to educate the community on LED bulb usage in the home and to distribute samples so households can try them out. Join us in getting the word out - that saving money is the easiest reason to try them. Typical 60watt LED light lasts for 50,000 hours (vs. 1,200 for an incandescent) and uses 500 kilowatts of electricity (vs. 3,000 for an incandescent). Over life of the bulb, the LED costs less than $100 while the incandescent costs over $300 for an equivalent 50,000 hours of illumination. So while you are saving money, you are reducing your energy usage. Contact Ginny Haines at vhaines@comcast.net to join this project to get the word out. Details on the LED education and distribution will come later this summer. JULY 4TH ROAD CLOSURES The City hopes you enjoy Independence Day festivities. To make sure events run smoothly, parking restrictions and road closures will occur. The following roads will either be closed or have parking restrictions on July 4: • Alder Circle • Allen Road • Canal Circle • Graef Circle • Maple Circle • Upper Drive • Greenbriar Road • Cardinal Drive • Chapman Way • Kelok Road • Lamont Way • Lords Lane • Bryant Road • Lakeview Blvd. • South Shore Specific restrictions will be listed in the July HelloLO and at www.ci.oswego.or.us. STAR SPANGLED PARADE The parade will begin at 10 a.m. Expect road closures in the area of Iron Mountain, Chandler, A Avenue, and Evergreen. Exact closures and times will be included in the July HelloLO. SUNRISE IN THE CITY UNVEILING CELEBRATION - JUNE 14 Join the McVey - South Shore Neighborhood Association on Saturday, June 14, at 12 p.m. for the unveiling of steel sculpture, Sunrise in the City, by artist Jesse Swickard. Located at the triangle at McVey and Laurel, this installation is the result of a three-year collaborative vision between the Neighborhood Association and the Arts Council of Lake Oswego. Funding for the project was made possible through the City of Lake Oswego’s Neighborhood Enhancement Grant Program. This striking, abstract sculpture will not only enlarge the city’s permanent outdoor sculpture collection, it will enhance one of the main gateways into the city. Neighbors are invited to attend the celebration, meet other neighbors, receive updates on current efforts and future proposals, and elect new board members. Pizza and fun for all! FIREWORKS ORDINANCE In May 2013, the city of Lake Oswego enacted a new City Ordinance to address the sale, possession or use of certain fireworks within the City limits. While it has always been illegal to sell, possess or use these same fireworks in the State of Oregon, this new ordinance makes those actions a City Code violation, which can result in a presumptive fine of $295 or up to $500. The Police and Fire Departments enforce this ordinance, so please don’t put yourself in the position to cause injury, damage or to receive a citation. If you see or suspect illegal fireworks, please call the Lake Oswego Fire Department at 503-635-0238. Legal Fireworks: These produce only smoke, sparks or fire. Examples are base fountains, cone fountains, wheels, and ground bloom flowers. Illegal Fireworks: These explode, eject balls of fire, fly into the air, or travel more than 6 feet on the ground or 12 inches into the air. Examples include Roman candles, firecrackers, sky lanterns, mortars and bottle rockets. FIREWORKS-RELATED FIRES AND INJURIES PROTECT YOUR FAMILY AND PETS From June 23 through July 6, State-legal fireworks can be purchased from licensed retailers in Lake Oswego. Every year fireworks serve as the ignition source of hundreds of fires in Oregon. Fires on roofs, in shrubs and bark dust, and on decks are common and can cause damage to your home and injury to your family. The Lake Oswego Fire Department encourages you and your family to have a fun and enjoyable Independence Day celebration by ensuring safe practices and legal use of consumer fireworks. Here are a few safety tips: • Use only legal fireworks • Use fireworks only in legal places (prohibited on beaches, City and State parks and federal forest land) • Do not allow young children to play with fireworks under any circumstances • Keep pets indoors • Have a garden hose or a bucket of water on hand • Never re-light a “dud” firework; wait 10-15 minutes, then soak in a bucket of water • Discard firework debris in a non-combustible container WORK ZONE SAFETY EVERYONE CONTRIBUTES! Summer is always busy with construction activity. Lake Oswego will have several active work zones throughout the summer. The City’s website is the best place to find information regarding projects in your neighborhood. Work zones may have narrower lanes, gravel on the surface, flaggers directing traffic, and be in operation day or night. The City of Lake Oswego works closely with all contractors to manage the construction impacts to pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers. All road closures will have detour signs and, in most cases, will be passable for bicyclists and pedestrians. Please allow for extra time in planning trips across town and drive cautiously through all construction zones. DEVELOPMENT CODE UPDATES The City needs your feedback on proposed changes to the Community Development Code. Amendments are being proposed to streamline regulations for variances and nonconforming structures and uses, and to add clear and objective standards for new housing development. Public Discussion Drafts are available for initial review and feedback, and comments are requested by June 10 in order to be included in the Planning Commission’s June 23 work session on the draft amendments. For project information and to view the Discussion Drafts and hearing dates, visit www.ci.oswego.or.us/planning or contact Sarah Selden at sselden@ci.oswego.or.us or 503-697-6524.
