In following <br />years, the City studied how to fund the plan and formed <br />the Lake Grove Village Center Urban Renewal District. <br />Throughout design, the Project Advisory Committee (PAC), <br />made up of citizens and area stakeholders, has worked <br />with the City’s design team to make recommendations <br />for the project. The City Council continues to support this <br />project. Our open house on January 10 will highlight some <br />of the attractive treatments you will see on Boones Ferry <br />Road at intersections and on sidewalks to encourage more <br />pedestrian activity. <br />If you own or operate a business <br />We’ve visited many of the businesses in the project area and <br />will drop by again before construction. We hope to meet you! <br />We want to keep you informed during construction and learn <br />about any special access or delivery needs, events, or other <br />unique circumstances you may have. <br />During construction, signage will help your customers <br />navigate the area and access driveways safely. If you have <br />questions or concerns, please contact us. We are here to <br />work with you. <br />Hiring a contractor in 2019 <br />The City of Lake Oswego will hire a contractor through a <br />competitive proposal method. A er the proposals are in <br />and a contractor is hired, the contractor will work with <br />us to schedule and coordinate construction plans. Before <br />construction begins, we’ll invite you to meet the contractor’s <br />sta and our project team who will help keep everyone <br />informed during construction. You may notice preparation <br />activities starting in late spring 2019, with construction <br />expected to gear up in the summer. <br />Schedules are subject to change. <br />What to expect during construction <br />Some lanes of Boones Ferry Road will be closed, tra ic <br />will be shi ed, and flaggers may direct tra ic at times. <br />There will be delays and disruption, but Boones Ferry Road <br />will remain open. You’ll see large trucks and equipment <br />coming and going. Some equipment or materials may <br />be stored within the public right-of-way when not in use. <br />You might feel vibration or hear noise during work hours, <br />including the familiar beeping of trucks and excavators <br />backing up. Back-up alarms are required under federal <br />regulations for safety. Due to the complexity of the project, <br />work will likely take place both day and night. <br />Stay informed 1.
