City Council
Transportation Plan, Neighborhood Grants, and more! 

The City Council will hold its next regular meeting tonight - Tuesday, July 29; the meeting will begin with an executive session at 4:30 p.m. Open session is expected to start at 6:30 p.m.
At this meeting, the Council will continue deliberation on the Transportation System Plan (TSP). The Council held a public hearing on the TSP on July 1 and, after hearing a presentation from staff and taking public testimony, requested additional edits. These edits will be discussed at this meeting. If approved, the amended TSP will become part of the recently updated Comprehensive Plan. Final adoption is tentatively scheduled for September 2.
In addition, Council will consider several public improvement contracts:
  • A public improvement contract with Kerr Contractors Oregon, Inc., in the amount of $167,336 for the move of a waterline for the Kerr Parkway Rehabilitation Project.
  • An amendment to the current personal service contract with Kennedy/Jenks Consultants, Inc. in the amount of $664,303 for pipeline design services resulting from alternative “Around the Lake” alignment and new storm drainage improvements on ‘B’ Avenue for the Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership project.
  • A public improvement contract with Pacific Excavation, Inc., in the amount of $322,070 for the Lake Bay Court Wastewater Rehabilitation project.

Also at this meeting, City Council will conduct two public hearings:
  • A public hearing on proposed amendments to sections of the Lake Oswego Code other than the Community Development Code (LOC Ch. 50). These revisions are part of the annual code maintenance, an on-going effort to update the code and make regulations more usable for residents and City staff. The proposed revisions affect the Fire Code, Building Code, Tree Code, and Streets.
  • A public hearing to consider vacating a portion of Rosewood Street and allowing a new alignment of the roadway to intersect with Boones Ferry Road.
Additional agenda items include approval of an Explanatory Statement for the November 4, 2014, General Election Voters’ Pamphlet regarding the Charter amendment ballot measure relating to elections authorizing construction or expansion of roads; awarding 14 Neighborhood Enhancement Program grants; a resolution approving the re-appointment of Ronald Matthews and appointment of Deborah Shimkus to the 50+ Advisory Board with Madalyn Seye as an alternate; a resolution establishing an Advisory Committee for the Southwest Employment Area Plan Project and appointing members; and presentation of a Distinguished Service Award to Tom Brennan for his service on the 50+ Advisory Board.
Also at this meeting, Council will hold a study session to receive an update and provide direction on revisions to the Sensitive Lands Program.

Free Child Safety Seat Clinic
Saturday, August 2

The Lake Oswego Fire Department and the Lake Oswego Police Department will hold their quarterly safety seat clinic from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Main Fire Station, 300 B Avenue. Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will check for correct installation, damage, recalls, and size and age appropriateness. Each seat takes about 30 minutes to check.

Vehicle crashes remain the number one killer of children ages 3-14 in the United States. Child safety seats, booster seats and seat belts are the best occupant protection. According to the CDC, placing children in age- and size-appropriate car seats and booster seats reduce serious and fatal injuries by more than half.
