LORA The Lake Oswego Redevelopment Agency is tentatively set to meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday for an executive session at city hall, 380 A Ave., to discuss real property. LORA is comprised of the Lake Oswego City Council and mayor.

CITY COUNCIL — After the LORA board meets on Tuesday, the council is scheduled to convene at about 7 p.m. for a regular meeting. The agenda includes adoption of an illegal fireworks ordinance, withdrawal of downtown redevelopment district parking standards, a contract change of $355,970 for design services for a finished water pipeline and various presentations and proclamations. Study sessions are also planned to discuss retail uses in employment zones and comprehensive plan amendments, and an executive session is scheduled to discuss real property, potential litigation and documents exempt from public disclosure.

Residents can check out the emergency mobile water treatment trailer and a street sweeper at the event, which takes place at Millennium Plaza Park.

DEVELOPMENT REVIEW — The Lake Oswego Development Review Commission last week delayed making a decision on a proposed retail and office development at 4591 Carman Drive.

The request, by Kruse Village LLC, is for a 64,000-square-foot development including six single-story buildings. Code variances are needed to allow for building canopies on Carman Drive and Meadows Road, and the project would remove 128 trees.

The DRC will continue discussing the project at 7 p.m. Monday at city hall, 380 A Ave.

At the same meeting, the commission will consider a proposal to partition property at 15955 and 15987 Boones Ferry Road into two parcels and construct a 4,430-square-foot building for a bank on one of those parcels.

It also is scheduled to review two separate requests to remove trees to make way for new homes. One proposal would remove six trees at 5502 Koderra Ave. and the other would remove four trees at 881 C Ave.
