Territorial Road needs four-way stops at spots

To the editor:

If the city wants to help the traffic situation on Northeast Territorial Road and make all the residents that live there happy, then don't change the speed limit down to 30 mph, but put two four-way stops at Maple and Redwood streets.

On a typical afternoon about 4 p.m., there will 12 to 15 cars go by in any five minute period.

Almost at any time during the day between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., there will be about 30-plus cars an hour. Sometimes when you go out across the street to get your mail it will take you five minutes or more. Okay, occasionally someone will stop when they see my gray hair and beard and wait for me to cross.

Livability coalition looking for help with cleaning projects

To the editor:

The Canby Livability Coalition would like to invite residents of all ages to our 11th annual Livability Day on Sunday, June 29, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Canby’s Livability Day focuses on cleaning up the downtown area, the “Welcome to Canby” signs and several park areas to make Canby clean and safe for summer visitors and residents. It is officially supported by the city of Canby by mayoral proclamation.

For a list of available cleanup projects, go to and click on Canby Livability Day projects. You may also design a project you’d like to do, and we’ll add it to the list. If Sunday doesn’t work for you, you can make arrangements to do a project earlier in the week.

Keeping Canby awesome takes a lot of volunteers, so grab a few friends, neighbors or co-workers and come to the Canby Art Park lot at the corner of Territorial Road and Holly Streets between 1 and 3 p.m. Sunday.

You can check out tools for your project and fill out a registration-liabilityform, as well as choose a last-minute project.

Sequoia Parkway improvement is good investment for city

To the editor:

I would like to thank the city of Canby for the new overpass on Sequoia Parkway that eliminates the bumpy and uncomfortable ride over the railroad tracks that used to be there.

While I’m sure there are some who will think the project a waste of money or that the effort could have been put elsewhere, as someone who drives that road a lot, I can definitely say it makes the drive far better and, I think, a little bit safer overall.

In my mind, this was a necessary and worthwhile project that makes one of the access points into Canby that much better. Well done.

Thanks offered for help with fundraiser sale

To the editor:

On behalf of Cascade Harmony Chorus and myself, I want to thank the construction crew, the city of Canby Public Works and my neighbors for making accommodations last weekend for the massive garage sale we held. This fundraiser helps the chorus with our many expenses.

See us Sept. 20 at our show here in Canby. Thank you, Canby
