Citizens Seem to Support DRC Decision

To All COLA LO Members,

This week the LO Review was flooded with articles from citizens supporting the decision of the DRC on a 3-2 vote against the proposed Wizer development.     IT was an interesting show of support by a broad number of residents in the community.  

Several articles hit on key points including:

DRC Listened which asks where is our city going?

Council Should Listen  which says the council should follow the logic of the DRC.

City Going Rogue which says that the neighborhoods don't support the project.  

While at the same time at least one resident believes that the debate had lead to a Balanced Project.

While COLA has taken no position on the project its clear that members and a large group of residents have strong views of what needs to be done.    The debate has continued over the entire summer which tends to be a calm season in local politics within Lake Oswego.  

Its clear that citizens are deeply concerned about this project which requires $5 million+  in taxpayer funding to be completed.   The Funding will be through the LORA Urban Renewal District.  

Its now likely that the City Council will hear the appeal of the project in September-October just before the election of three new city councilors.    Stay tuned...

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends....
