In the Jan. 14 story titled “Under Siege” the Tidings incorrectly cited the reasons a Jan. 11 notice of violation of its conditions of approval was given to the Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership water pipeline project in West Linn. The worksite was found to be in violation of requirements to limit the length of the construction zone on Mapleton Drive and removing equipment on the roadway after work hours. It was also noted that the site’s trench surfacing was not in compliance with the city’s public works standards. According to the City of West Linn, the issues were corrected by the following day. The story incorrectly stated the nature of a lawsuit between LOT and water plant neighbors; LOT sued neighbors who refused to waive CC&Rs that would not allow industrial construction on residential property. In addition, a statement by longtime property owner Shanon Vroman was unclear: after living next to the water plant for more than two decades, Vroman moved from the Robinwood neighborhood in 2015 but maintains a rental property there. According to Vroman, one of LOT’s construction cranes was erected along the property line of the home she sold. Its arm did not swing directly over the property.

Also, in a Jan. 14 story titled “City voices support for park land acquisition” the amount needed to purchase nearly 6 acres adjacent to White Oak Savanna was unclear. Public donations of $500,000 have been raised; it is uncertain how much more is needed due to ongoing real estate negotiations.
