ACC meal services temporarily relocated
Lake Oswego's Adult Community Center is scheduled to undergo a two-month renovation to replace its kitchen floor beginning later this month, which will disrupt lunch and Meals on Wheels services at the site.
Beginning Wednesday, Jan 17, meal services will be temporarily relocated to the municipal golf course at 17525 S.W. Stafford Road, which will also serve as the pick-up location for Meals on Wheels deliveries.
The meal program will continue on the regular Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule, and recipients can call 503-635-3758 to schedule reservations as usual. According to ACC manager Ann Adrian, transportation service to the golf course will be available.
All other ACC functions will continue at the regular site, Adrian said.
If the kitchen renovation goes as planned, Adrian said the work is expected to be completed by March 16, after which the meal program will move back to the ACC.

'Respond to Racism' schedules meeting
Organizers of Respond to Racism, a grassroots effort to gather the community for a discussion about racism and discrimination in Lake Oswego, have announced that they will hold the next in an ongoing series of meetings on Monday, Jan. 8.
Liberty Miller and Willie Poinsette organized the original event in July in response to a blog post about a racist road-rage incident in Lake Oswego. That and incidents in local schools prompted Miller to start a conversation on the social-networking site Nextdoor, which led her to Poinsette. The women then decided to invite the entire community to join them for a series of monthly meetings that have now attracted more than 100 people.
The next meeting is scheduled from 6-8:30 p.m. on Jan. 8 at the Lake Oswego United Church of Christ, 1111 Country Club Road. Refreshments will be served at 6 p.m.; the work begins at 6:30 p.m. For more information or to register, go to tinyurl.com/JanuaryRespond.
Crews to replace failed Dunthorpe culvert
A contractor working for Multnomah County was scheduled to start work this week to replace a failed culvert along the southeast shoulder of Southwest Military Road at the intersection with Southwest Military Court. The project will impact traffic on a short section of the residential street
in the Dunthorpe neighborhood just north of Lake Oswego.
Braun Construction was expected to begin work as soon as Tuesday on a project that should take about two weeks to complete, weather permitting. Work hours will typically be from 8 am to 5 pm.
The project will replace an open-bottom concrete culvert that carries stormwater. The base of the culvert has eroded, causing the ground to settle. The concrete culvert will be replaced with a 36-inch-diameter pipe. Water passing through the new pipe will drain into an armored ditch on the northeast side of Military Court.
Due to winter temperatures, asphalt will not be placed on top of the new culvert until summer 2018. Until then, a layer of crushed rock will cover the culvert. The total project is estimated to cost $60,000, using county road funds.
Southwest Military Road will remain open to traffic, although the southbound lane will be closed in the work zone. Flaggers will direct traffic during work days. For more information, visit www.multco.us/militaryroad.
Adults, teens sought for Traffic Safety Commission
Clackamas County is recruiting applicants to serve on the Traffic Safety Commission (TSC), a 12-member board of volunteers that establishes programs to reduce traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities throughout the county.
In addition to adults who serve for four years, the TSC is seeking up to three high school students willing to add their perspective for 3-12 months. Students will have the same voting rights on the TSC as the adult members, and will be offered the opportunity to apply to serve again.
The Clackamas County TSC is one of the most active in the state. Among its responsibilities: reviewing traffic safety, education and outreach and providing guidance to the county's traffic safety staff; developing and implementing the county's Transportation Safety Action Plan; and working on safety education, fielding public concerns, identifying safety projects, conducting community outreach on traffic safety and working with county traffic engineers to implement traffic safety measures.
