  • Mike Buck asks anyone who has comments or thoughts with respect to
    amending the Tree or Development Cost, to please pass those along to

  • Robert Hrdinsky, presented three topics and followed up with an email. He
    requested anyone with questions and/or recommendations, please pass them
    along to him. From his email dated 01/20/2023
    o Speed Limits: “A new state law allows Oregon cities to apply for the
    authority to designate speed limits on their roads. In the past, a city
    dealing with speeding or accidents on their roads had to get permission
    from the state to change the speed limit, even if the street was owned
    and maintained by the city..”. (House Bill 3055)
    o Group Email: looking options if it’d be beneficial to have a group mail-list
    like where we can simply send to alias [LGNA] and all Members/Directors
    would get the mail plus keeps an archive through-out the years, Google
    Groups is one common option
    o Neighborhood Contact: having the ability for our neighbors to contact us,
    looks like we already own so we can have an
    email alias like that forwards to a
    designated email, ideally a group email like above (goal is to not advertise
    our personal email). Also was mentioned about possibly having some
    presence on Nextdoor (I’m off social media so not sure how it’d fully
    work). With the main purpose for us to be able to be a resource and guide
    neighbors to the right contact/department (e.g. questions around Speed
    Bumps), and hopefully to have more community connection / impactful

    Proposed Developments
  • House at 16112 Reese (LU 22-0065), Short discussion of the proposed
    project. Appears at first to be lot-line adjustment but does include
    teardown of an existing dwelling.
  • Cancelled West Lake Grove development of a private school at 16710
    Boones Ferry Rd, (LU 22-0090). The issue leading to the withdrawal of
    the application for the school in the WLG district was due to the
    application of design standards specific to WLG. (LOC
