GUEST PRESENTATION • Dennis Wright, City of West Linn Engineering Manager. The discussions centered around the various issues in the Falls View Street area. Specifically:

1. Make Falls View a one-way street: action for City council

2. Install “No Parking” signs on Falls View: could be done immediately

3. Street sweeping: difficult to do with all the cars

4. Dumpster unsightly- should be relocated: city to work with trash hauler and apartment complex owner.

5. Install a “Local Traffic Only” sign: on Hemlock to reduce the volume of traffic.

6. Repaving Falls View – it was suggested sealants be put down instead - in view of costs involved.

7. Trimming trees: on slope of apartment complex on NW side of Falls View: resident working with apartment complex owner.

8. Water runoff: concerns where raised controlling the flow in area.

In addition to the follow up indicated above, the city will send out a letter and a map to the affected residents who live on Hemlock, Falls View, and Pine informing them of the concerns expressed, as well as the actions under consideration. If there are no adverse repercussions, the city will proceed accordingly. Otherwise, these issues will be re-visited at the next regularly scheduled SNA meeting on January 19.


With no further business before the SNA, the President adjourned the meeting at 7:38pm. **Next meeting will be Tuesday, January 19, 2010 @ 7pm.** Respectfully submitted by Doreen Vokes, Secretary of the SNA.
