City Notes

CITY COUNCIL — The city council has pushed back its regular meeting time but will meet on the same day as it has in the past. Meetings will now usually be held at 7 p.m. Tuesdays at city hall, 380 A Ave.

PAPERLESS MEETINGS — The city council is gradually easing into going paperless. The tentative move toward paperless packets, meaning the council will review meeting materials electronically rather than print form, begins this month. The city will supply laptops or iPads to each council member, depending on his or her preference.

COMP PLAN — The city of Lake Oswego needs a 21- to 35-year-old person to serve on the city’s Comprehensive Plan Citizen Advisory Committee. The group provides recommendations to the planning commission and city council about the ongoing update of the city’s comprehensive plan, a long-term vision and set of planning policies that guides land use, transportation systems and utilities in Lake Oswego.

The 15-member committee, convened in 2010, meets one Thursday each month. Members are committed to serve through July 2013. More information about the committee and an application for the vacant position are available at www.ci.oswego.or.us/planning/long-range-planning-0. Applications must be submitted by Jan. 18.

PASSENGER RAIL — The Oregon Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting on the Oregon Passenger Rail project for Lake Oswego and Tualatin stakeholders from 5 to 7 p.m. today. The open house will take place at the Tualatin Police Department, 8650 SW Tualatin Road in Tualatin. For more information, visit oregonpassengerrail.org.

SELLWOOD BRIDGE — The bridge across the Willamette River north of Lake Oswego will be closed to traffic from 5 a.m. Jan. 17 to 7 a.m. Jan. 24 so construction crews can move the 1,100-foot truss span and install a detour bridge.

During the one-week closure, the detour route for motorists headed north is Highway 43 to the Ross Island Bridge to Highway 99 East. The southern detour is Highway 43 to Interstate 205 or Highway 43 over the Abernethy Bridge to Highway 99. If you travel on Highway 43 and would like to receive online traffic updates related to construction of the new Sellwood Bridge in Portland, click on the “Construction Updates” link at sellwoodbridge.org.
