Each day we are inching closer to a brighter future for the Lake Oswego community with programs and facilities that are welcoming to everyone and all abilities. THE LAKE OSWEGO RECREATION & AQUATIC CENTER (LORAC) The building is taking shape! Throughout August, major work continued at the Lake Oswego Recreation and Aquatic Center. The prep work of installing rebar in buildings B and C was completed, ensuring the site was ready for the slab pour. In addition, all the formwork for the concrete was completed. On August 16, the slab pour began and continued for several days with over 260 cubic yards of concrete. The framing will follow, and wall systems will start to be put into place. It is exciting to see it come out of the ground! GOLF COURSE UPDATE It’s time to watch the grass grow! The heat and dry temperatures didn’t stop the prep work on the golf course. Work has been done to prepare for seeding in the past few weeks. Golf course seeding is meticulous because there must be proper seed- to-soil contact. Watering has been vital so that the seeds establish adequate germination. This “grow- in” period will last over the next year. During this time, the grass matures, and the course will become playable when it opens in 2024. PREPAREDNESS FAIR SEPTEMBER 14, 5:30-7:30 P.M. September is National Preparedness Month. To celebrate, and to learn how to care for yourself and your family in the event of a disaster, join us at the Emergency Preparedness Fair on Thursday, September 14 at Lake Oswego City Hall, 380 A Avenue. For more information, check out our Preparedness insert or visit www.lakeoswego.city/community/emergency- preparedness-fair-2023. LAKEVIEW BLVD IMPROVEMENT PROJECT COMMUNITY MEETING - TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 6:30-8 P.M. The City is evaluating stormwater issues, pavement conditions, pedestrian access, and safety along Lakeview Boulevard, between South Shore Boulevard and Iron Mountain Boulevard. The project team held an open house in June 2023 and gathered valuable feedback from the community on what we should consider. Please join us at a community meeting at our Maintenance Center, 17601 Pilkington Road, to learn more about preliminary project designs, talk to the project team, and provide feedback. A presentation will take place at the beginning of the meeting, followed by group discussions. To learn more, please visit lakeoswego.city/lakeviewboulevard. HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE OF PARKS & RECREATION The Lake Oswego Parks & Recreation Department seeks volunteers to serve on the Community Advisory Committee for the Parks Plan 2040 project. Parks Plan 2040 is a long-range comprehensive system plan that will guide how the City provides parks, recreation opportunities, natural areas, and human services to the Lake Oswego community through 2040. Community Advisory Committee members will meet up to seven times over the next 18 months to provide input and advise the project team on key deliverables such as goals, needs, future projects, and implementation strategies. The application form is available online at: www.lakeoswego.city/parks-plan-2040. Applications are open through September 15, at 5 p.m. If you have questions, please contact Kyra Haggart at khaggart@lakeoswego.city or 503-697-6576. CITY SURVEYS WE APPRECIATE YOUR PARTICIPATION This fall, the City will be conducting two important surveys. The first will help us plan for the future of parks and recreation in Lake Oswego. The second will ask about your satisfaction with City services and programs as a whole. Both surveys are being conducted independently by research firms. You may be contacted by mail, phone, or text to participate in one or both of the surveys. We hope you'll take a few minutes to respond. Your participation is vital to helping the City meet your needs and provide quality programs and services to all Lake Oswego community members.

Did you know, one in five adults and one in six youth experience mental health issues each year? They may think they’re alone and hopeless, but they’re not. If you or someone you know is in a mental health crisis, call Clackamas County’s Crisis and Support Line at 503-655-8585 or the national Suicide and Crisis Lifeline at 988. Even if there is no crisis, they will offer support, connection, information and education. Interpretation services are available for non-English speakers. This service is available anytime, day or night. The Clackamas Crisis and Support Line and 988 are both a free and confidential telephone resource staffed by trained, caring individuals who can help callers work through a crisis, however big or small. People can also call if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support. WHAT’S YOUR LAWN STYLE? Did you know, the best time for fall overseeding (adding grass seed over the entire lawn) is around Labor Day weekend? This is because the soil is warm and encourages seed germination. You may know that what you put on your lawn can end up in our waterways and impact fish and wildlife - but did you know it can be cheaper and easier to skip out on chemicals and pesticides? September and October are the best months to use a slow-release fertilizer on your lawn. Fall is also a great time to remove thatch, aerate, and spread grass seed over your entire lawn to help it out compete weeds. Raking in compost as a natural and safe fertilizer is recommended. What’s Your Lawn Style has short informational videos that offer free tips to homeowners for any level of lawn maintenance - low, medium, or high. Viewers will learn how to maintain their lawns at a level of effort that is right for them, with little or no pesticides and fertilizer. The result? Good-looking lawns that are safe for kids and pets, while keeping chemical runoff out of our waterways! For more information, check out What’s Your Lawn Style’s videos at https://bit.ly/3yaudng.

STAFFORD ROAD TRAFFIC IMPACT Work will continue on the Stafford Road corridor this month, moving the multi-use pathway to the south side of the road until the new Lake Oswego Recreation and Aquatic Center is completed. Lane closures and flaggers will remain in place between Bergis and Rosemont Roads. The public can expect delays. No work will be done on the first week of school, including September 5 through 8. On September 11, work resumes from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. For the latest updates on construction, visit www. lakeoswego.city/parksrec/parks-recreation-projects or call 503-675-2549. WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL! The 2023-24 school year is getting underway! With that, traffic across the city has increased and our streets and sidewalks are bustling with activity. While the City strives to provide all pedestrians - whether they are on foot, on a bicycle, using a mobility aid, or accessing and riding transit - with safer access to schools. School safety is everyone's responsibility. Here are a few tips to keep everyone safe: WHEN DRIVING: • Obey 20 mph school speed zones during school hours or when lights are flashing • Never pass a school bus with red lights flashing • Stop (and stay stopped!) for pedestrians ready to cross at marked or unmarked crosswalks • To reduce traffic and promote safety, avoid driving on roads near schools during drop-off and pick-up times. The school schedules are as follows: WHEN WALKING: • Walk on sidewalks and pathways where available • If walking on the road, walk toward traffic, be predictable, and follow the rules of the road • Cross at intersections not mid-block • Make eye contact with drivers, make sure they stop • Walk as a group for added safety and fun! WHEN RIDING A BICYCLE: • Wear your helmet, it's Oregon law for persons under age 16 (and a good idea for everyone else) • Ride single-file and with traffic • Mind traffic signs and signals and use hand signals when turning • Watch for vehicles that may turn across your path WHEN RIDING AN E-BIKE: • You must be 16 to ride an e-bike • Never ride on the sidewalk • Always use a bike lane or path where available • Helmets are not required but are recommended • Watch for vehicles that may turn across your path WHEN TAKING THE SCHOOL BUS: • Wait on your side of the street, cross to the bus when the crossing arms are out • Stand about six feet away (three giant steps) from the curb when waiting Safety is a top priority for the City and School District (LOSD). To learn more about how LOSD communicates, plans, and trains for emergencies, go to losdschools.org/safetyandsecurity.

A LIBRARY CARD IS ELEMENTAL Celebrate National Library Card Month with LOPL September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, and we invite you to celebrate with the Lake Oswego Public Library! Why get a library card? Because libraries are a great resource! And library cards are some of the most cost-effective back-to-school supplies available. Throughout the school year, public library staff assist parents and caregivers with saving hundreds of dollars on educational resources and services for students. Free access to STEAM programs/activities, educational apps, homework help, our vast physical and digital collections, our Library of Things, Seed Library, Cultural Passes, the many other resources libraries offer without cost, and the expertise of our librarians are just some of the priceless services available to library card holders. Discover more at www.lakeoswego.city/library/library-cards-your- account. Everyone is eligible for a library card, so the whole family can sign up! FIRST TUESDAY MUSIC: CHIP COHEN - KLEZMER AND BLUEGRASS FIDDLING HYBRID: Tuesday, September 5, 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Chip Cohen has been fiddling for audiences across the United States since the 1970s. After studying classical violin as a youth in Maryland, he traveled to the Great Smokey Mountains where he immersed himself in bluegrass and old-time fiddling. He's been fiddling ever since, working with such artists as the Holy Modal Rounders, the Johnson Mountain Boys, Ferlin Huskey, and Michelle Shocked. Along his musical journey, he has added Celtic, Cajun, and klezmer fiddle, classical guitar, and original compositions to his repertoire. MEXICO’S AZTEC EAGLES: HEROES OF WORLD WAR II WITH SIG UNANDER Saturday, September 16, 2 to 3 p.m. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, join speaker Sig Unander for this illuminating presentation about the Aztec Eagle fighter pilots of World War II! The legendary Aztec Eagle fighter pilots were the only Mexican military unit to serve in combat outside of Mexico. This elite unit of volunteer aviators and support personnel helped American forces drive the Japanese from the Philippines during World War II. However, the Eagles’ exploits were largely forgotten after the war. Through the research of historians such as Sig Unander, their powerful story is coming to light again. For more information, please call or email Todd Feinman at 503-675-2535 or tfeinman@lakeoswego.city.

Register at https://bit.ly/EVwebinar-921. ELECTRIC HOME AND VEHICLE FAIR SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, FROM 10 A.M. TO 2:00 P.M.

Exhibits and speakers will cover a range of topics including rooftop solar panels, heat pumps for space and water heating, induction cooktops, the financial incentive available for home electrification, designing a whole solar-electric home, electric vehicles, and more. Admission is free; no tickets are required. The LOSN is a community-based, non-profit organization run by volunteers with the purpose of promoting sustainability in Lake Oswego. FOOD DONATION OPPORTUNITY The Adult Community Center is putting together 150 Emergency Food Boxes for Lake Oswego's Meals on Wheels participants. Please consider donating food items for our most vulnerable citizens. You can drop off non-perishable food items at the Adult Community Center, 505 G Avenue, through Friday, September 29. For more information including a list of needed food items, go to www.lakeoswego.city/acc/ emergency-food-boxes-needed. LO Meals on Wheels provides healthy meals, a helping hand, and a link to the community for homebound seniors and disabled adults. METRO LOCAL SHARE DOLLARS LAST CHANCE TO HELP PRIORITIZE FUNDING Parks & Recreation has access to $2,083,297 in funding for local parks and nature projects from the Metro Regional Government Local Share Program. This is the last chance to weigh in and help prioritize the list of projects that meet the program requirements. To learn more about the projects and take the online survey, visit www.lakeoswego.city/parksrec/local-share-metro-parks-and-nature-bond or scan the QR code. The survey closes on October 2. FISH ON THE RUN, IRRIGATION DONE For the fifth year in a row, Lake Oswego and the Clackamas River Water Providers are asking our customers to help keep water in the Clackamas River by participating in our “Fish On the Run, Irrigation Done!” annual summer watering campaign. The Clackamas River provides high-quality drinking water to more than 300,000 people - including Lake Oswego customers - and is home to migrating salmon year-round. While we haven’t had an overly hot summer, we haven’t had significant rainfall for months, and the river levels are very low. You are the key to reducing how much water we take out of the river! Whether you use a hose or have an underground watering system to water your yard and garden, let’s make sure there is enough water for the fall fish runs by shutting off outdoor watering by early September. The more water we can conserve, the easier the journey will be for threatened and endangered salmon species. Visit www.clackamasproviders.org/fish-on-the-run to learn more and take the pledge to receive a free yard sign letting neighbors know what you are doing to keep water in the Clackamas River for fish. EV CHARGING SURVEY SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS! As a part of the our community transportation electrification goals, the City is exploring options to invest in Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. Before that work begins, we want to hear from you! Where should EV charging stations be located? What challenges are there for accessing EV charging? Are you considering moving towards an electric vehicle in the next 5 years? Complete the EV survey by September 25 at www.lakeoswego.city/sustainabililty
