Planning meeting dates for your calendar

Even if you can't get to all the meetings you would like, try to pick a couple of issues, or just one, and write to the committee in charge, to the appropriate board or commission, or to the city council with your opinions.  

We all need to help one another - no one wants to think they are shouldering the load by themselves - the burden is too great.  Our community operates best when many people share the responsibilities of government, and it is up to the people who want to be our leaders to make sure this happens.

These 4 planning projects have the potential to improve or disturb the character of Lake Oswego neighborhoods and change how the city functions.  The Stakeholder Advisory Cimmittees represent only a few parties and their own interests.  If you wanted to be on a committee and didn't know that it existed until it was too late, or the committee was selected by staff and you never had a chance, will your opinion matter now?

Do these Advisory Committees represent YOU?
How do you know?
