Robinwood Neighborhood Association (RNA, RN to be used for Robinwood Neighborhood)
Monthly Meeting Minutes
Kevin Bryck called the meeting to order at 7:02 PM. The April 2006 meeting minutes could not be accepted as the RNA President was not present. The persons who attended recited the Pledge of Allegiance.
Police Activity Update
Officers McKean and Amendogara reported on the 80 police incidents in the RN for April 2006. They also mentioned the following actions that residents can take to ensure their personal safety and to adequately secure their personal documents:
Report suspicious behavior
Keep personal belongings out of plain view (in your car) or not in your car at all
Martin Nixon commented on a suspicious solicitor and the officers responded with a second set of prudent resident actions:
Ask solicitors to show ID and their business permit
Post No Solicitation sign (must use specific language and be a certain size)
Kevin Bryck commented that West Linn should distribute No Solicitation signs to residents or allow a sign to be printed off the Internet.
Officer Amendogara committed to detailing the parameters of a qualifying sign.
Resident Anne Beltman requested that a mobile speed control unit be placed on Southbound 43 as 43 enters West Linn.
Various residents commented that it would be prudent to move the bus stop on the West side of 43 near Thriftway closer to the existing crosswalk near Cedar Oak drive (this would alleviate riders of the bus walking to/from the bus stop and the Park&Ride at a non-crosswalk section of 43).
RNA Streetwalkers Update (last meeting with city, 5/8/06)
Streetwalkers Kevin Bryck and Anne Beltman reported that there were no substantive updates to discuss and they need assistance in working with the ODOT grant and Transportation Safety Plan.
Fireworks in West Linn
Mr. Ralston reported that there would be no city sponsored fireworks show in West Linn this year due to lack of funding.
Various residents commented that they were glad to see that the RN sign was up on 43.
The meeting adjourned at 7:55 PM. Next meeting will be on Tuesday, 6/13/06 at 7:00 PM.
