Earthquake Preparedness: Alita Ostapkovich, Washington County Emergency Management, will fill us in on what we need to know to be prepared for the predicted “big one.” Bring your questions!

This program provides free transportation options to older adults, Veterans, and people with disabilities in Washington, Multnomah, and Clackamas counties. Along with partner organizations they provide over half a million rides annually to people who otherwise may not be able to participate in their community.

Woodstove Exchange Program: Tim Davis will describe how the county’s program works to clear the air and provide safe, efficient heating to people who use woodstoves.

The meeting will be live-streamed on the CPO 1 Facebook page, and also available for viewing after the meeting.

Springville Road is currently a two- and three-lane urban arterial serving the rapidly growing North Bethany area. Road sections are not standardized, with narrow shoulders and multiple pedestrian-and-bicycle conflict areas. The project will widen Springville Road, between Kaiser Road and Joss Avenue, to three consistent lanes (one lane in each direction with a center turn lane). Bicycle lanes, sidewalks and street lighting will also be added.

The project is in the design phase. Construction is expected to begin in summer 2020, with completion anticipated by spring 2021. The $6.8 million project is funded through the North Bethany Service District.

The Washington County project team will be available to answer questions. No formal presentation is planned; stop by any time during open house hours.

For more information, visit the project webpage or contact Capital Project Services at 503-846-7800 or lutproj@co.washington.or.us. For a sign or spoken language interpreter, please call 503-846-7822 (or 7-1-1 for Telecommunications Relay Service) at least 48 hours prior to this event.
