Chairman’s Report

Dan announced that Robert Dove resigned from the Board

Dan led a discussion on City sponsored art along Boones Ferry Road.  Lake Grove has just three street art installations compared to 47 in downtown Lake Oswego.  Trudy explained that LGNA is working with Waluga and Lake Forest to use our potential Neighborhood Enhancement Grants for street art along Boones Ferry.  Mike Buck wrote a letter to Eric Olson [City Planner]  indicating that Lake Grove needs a better deal.  In the Boones Ferry project three pads for art work were built plus additional pads at each intersection and these are wired for lighting.

We discussed having the City build a new sign saying “Welcome to Lake Grove Village” and paying for the sign with a Neighborhood Enhancement grant.  A motion was made for this and seconded.  Board members attending voted unanimously to approve the measure.

Dan talked on the recent Mayor/Board Chair meeting.  A new park has been approved for the Palisades, Lake Oswego’s largest neighborhood.  It will have extensive activity areas including a skate board park and pickle ball court.

Police Chief Dale Ferguson has hired four more police officers, mostly for the graveyard shift.  All new officers will undergo a psychological interview.  All LO police officers body cams.

Mayor Joe Buck announced Earth Day events.  Flower baskets along major streets will be back this year.  The demolition code will be made more strict.  Joe noted a Council concern that I-205 tolling could effect Lake Oswego traffic if it goes into effect.

Dan is considering inviting Eric Olson to our annual meeting to explain state law HB2001 to our neighbors with its major changes in neighborhood zoning allowing for duplex, triplex and quadplex housing where currently there are only single homes.

Director Reports    

Chuck Fisher, Treasurer

Chuck advised that Articles of Dissolution have been filed with the state ending our non-profit agency status and the $50 paid to the State Department of Justice.

Jerry Nierengarten, Urban Forest

Jerry reported on an April 23 tree ivy removal Arbor Day Project that Board members Jerry, Dan, Trudy and Mike would participate in as part of the the Oswego Lake Watershed Council.

Jerry reviewed tree cutting permits for 4456 Sunset, 3876 Lake Grove Avenue, 3850 Lake Grove Avenue and 15655  Twin Fir Road.  The first three are for builders to build new spec homes.  The Twin Fir site will be for a new home but it will be for the current owner, who is a landscape designer and maintained a beautiful yard over the years and loves trees.  On all these, we do not have leverage to block the tree removals.

Yoko Kinoshita

Yoko arranged with Starbucks [by LG Elementary] to provide us with free coffee and cookies for the April 24 Arbor Weekend Cleanup at Iron Mountain Park.  Mike Buck has arranged for a guest speaker for the event.

Yoko discussed another event at Iron Mountain Park for our neighbors on National Night Out. The City may help with the budget for this.  It was proposed and seconded that the Board provide $200 from our treasury account balance for the event.  Attending Board member unanimously approved the expenditure. 

The meeting adjourned at 8:00 pm

Dan welcomed neighbor Robert Hroinsky to the meeting.  He lives just down the street on Upper.

Dan advised us that going forward neighborhoods receiving Neighborhood Enhancement Grants would have to pay for the service or product their neighborhood was awarded and then request reimbursement from the City.  Dan talked to the City and was promised that reimbursement would be quick and likely take place in a day or two.

Dan advised that the City Parks and Rec will sponsor a Farmers Market event in Lake Grove on October 24.  Members commented that there was little publicity for this and there were concerns that attendance could suffer.

Dan noted an upcoming Pre-Ap PA 21-0101 for tax lot 4300 onNovember 4 at 1:15 pm.  This is the island property between Upper and Boones Ferry by the Pamplin property.  Dan will attend.
