Meeting Location: City Hall, West Linn, OR
John A. Miller
1. Meeting called to order at 7:00
2. Minutes from the BHT NA meeting held on 05/24/05 were read and approved.
3. Lengthy discussion regarding installation of Traffic Calming Devices:
a. Need for Traffic Calming Devices is created by already existing increased traffic levels and expected increases due to Parker Road developments
b. Sue Jones met with developer (Parker Crest and Maxfield) and the following points were discussed:
i. Connector road between Parker Road and Beacon Hill Lane will not be a straight line, but more circuitous to discourage usage of Barrington Drive as a short-cut.
ii. Construction trucks will not use Barrington Drive during construction because existing barrier on Beacon Hill Lane will remain in place until construction is complete
iii. Developer pledged $6,000 for installation of traffic calming devices in BHT NA environs. This is expected to cover 3 “islands” at around $2,000 per island including irrigation, but not including vegetation and maintenance.
c. In a separate meeting Sue Jones met with developer and city representatives to review preliminary locations for traffic calming devices.
i. The above mentioned $2000 per island estimate was confirmed and a preliminary location map was drawn-up.
ii. City representative indicated that the City will oversee and manage installation and construction of islands at no cost to BHT NA if funds for basic construction cost are obtained.
d. Anticipated sources for additional funds for additional islands deemed necessary: BHT NA funds, Barrington Heights Homeowner’s Association, and possibly individuals acting on their own.
4. Motion made and passed:
a. “To authorize that the balance of monies remaining in the BHT NA 2005/2006 Neighborhood Fund be forwarded to West Linn Finance Director, Elizabeth Carlson, as partial payment toward the future installation of traffic calming islands along Beacon Hill Drive.”

6. Motion made and passed:
