***** Chair report ****
Dan told the Board our annual meeting will be held on October 22. Eric from City Planning will gives a presentation on the affect of State Measure H2001 Low Income Housing on Lake Oswego. The measure will allow duplex, triplex and quadplex on lots zoned for only single family homes.
EcoHome has also been invited to make a presentation. The volunteer ecology group has been invited to talk to us before but has had difficulty lining up a speaker for our group.
The Habitat for Humanity affordable home project at Upper and Boones Ferry has been moving forward meetings with the City. A neighborhood meeting will be held on Monday August 7. Ken Sandblast and representatives from Humanity for Humanity will be there for presentation and questions. There is going to be a left turn-lane added on south-bound Boones Ferry to allow additional access to the property in addition to the right-turn access on Boones Ferry. Trees in the median will have to be removes for the new left-turn lane.
***** Neighbor input – Walt *****
Walt commented that traffic seems a bit lighter after the completion of the Boone Ferry Project. He noted some neighborhood signs are missing that directed folks to Lake Grove Presbyterian and to KinderCare.

Mike reported on meetings of Lake Grove Businessmen and the City. Jim Bateman from the City indicated that Holiday lighting was already expensive and took three weeks to install. Lake Grove Businesses will continue to solicit the city for more help and funding for decorations. LG businesses voted to approve the purchase of about $80 worth of red and gold ribbons to hang from 48 lampposts along Boones Ferry.
