LO Citizens Debate Social Issues in Articles & Comment

To All COLA LO Members,

Last week several citizens submitted opinion articles on a variety of social issues which are the foundation of the efforts of the current administration.   The discussion and points made provide an interesting insight into the debates and views within the community. 

The first article addresses the Foothills development and the social agenda it proposes for "affordable housing".   In it the author indicates that affordable or subsidized housing doesn't have to be vinyl Affordable Housing.    In a second article a citizen suggests that affordable housing is required for Diversity and challenges the view of one city councilor that Lake Oswego should be a community that people aspire to or work hard to earn. 

A third article in Letters to the editor says that the ongoing discussions between residents shows there is a diversity of views and promotes a new indoor tennis center project which will likely be on property which is brought into the urban growth boundary by the city LO prepares.

All of these views and issues will certainly become part of the discussion citizens have with candidates prior to the election.    Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
