Lake Grove Neighborhood Association

Chairman Dan Anderson opened the meeting at 7:00 pm

Attending: Dan Anderson, Trudy Corrigan, Audrey Block, Yoko Kinoshita, Chuck Fisher, Jerry Nierengarten

No guests or neighbors in attendance

Minutes Approved, Treasury Balance  “0”

Chair report

Dan advised us of the progress on the Lanewood Pathwood.  No dates for implementation as yet.  There were twelve neighbors at the meeting with the City on the pathway and two consultants. The consultants laid out maps for Lanewood and the south side of Douglas Circle to show where the pathway would be located.  Neighbors general liked the idea however one was concerned that he would lose a bit of his front for the path.  However, that piece may already be deeded as City right away.

Director Reports

Chuck reported that he has successfully brought our Treasury balance to zero with the balance being donated to Lake Oswego Watershed.  Our association is now inactive with the State of Oregon.  Prior to zeroing it out Yoko was given $200 for the Neighborhood summer gathering as voted on and approved in the April meeting for an August acre cream social for the neighborhood.

Yoko told us she received an extension on the grant from Portland State so that she can continue to receive payments for helping our neighborhood with various projects and events for another year.

There were no neighbors in attendance at the meeting and no other input.

The meeting adjourned at 7:50

Lake Grove Neighborhood Association

Chairman Dan Anderson opened the meeting at 7:04 pm

Attending: Dan Anderson, Trudy Corrigan, Audrey Block,Yoko Kinoshita, Chuck Fisher, Jerry Nierengarten

No guests or neighbors in attendance

Minutes Approved

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
