Citizen Requests Council Not to Create a "Lame Duck" Legacy

To All COLA LO members,

This past week a resident published an article in the LO review regarding the efforts of the current city council.    In the article the resident asks the administration not to create a lame duck legacy during their remaining days in office, before the January 8th swearing in of new council members and a mayor. 

In the article the citizen states: 

"Current Lake Oswego Mayor Jack Hoffman and his city council are moving forward in setting up an urban renewal district for Foothills when such a proposed development does not map with the wishes of the newly elected mayor and council. Nor has it been reviewed in detail with voters. "

The article as goes on to state:

"There are situations where moving forward on urban renewal districts (such as Lake View Village) are appropriate. This Foothill district proposal is not such a case. This proposal is in the same vein of “moving forward” that occurred with the West End Building that continues to plague our town. "

It provides interesting reading and the article can be found at Lame Duck Legacy?

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
