If you have already responded by email that’s great.  If you would rather just respond as a comment online, this is just another way to respond.

The purpose of this post and the letter is to hear from our 228 residents about their desire to investigate changing or maintaining the current CC&Rs related to the Alarm System monitoring.  

 

The current step is to gather a tally Yay/Nay responses

Questions or Next steps should be addressed in an email to Jan Landis, not on the website.

We will give a report after two weeks of Yay/Nay responses received.

Information:  If you have a landline, you may be connected to the Alarm monitoring system that is managed by Wilsonville Lock and Security, they could not tell me who was or was not.

Irrigation Issues

 

Please note that the irrigation water is filled with algae and debris, which is clogging our filters and sprinklers. It’s taking up most of the time of our Irrigation Specialist just keeping the sprinklers running. Until this condition clears up we may not be able to respond to regular irrigation requests in a timely manner.

We ask that the residents please hand water if they have plants in danger.  

We appreciate your patience as we work thru this problem.

Please contact Steve Chinn at schinno@gmail.com or 503-682-0234 if you have any questions and/or need more information.

New Poolside Chair Lift in Charbonneau

Please see note below from the Charbonneau Country Club regarding the new Poolside Chair Lift:

“Charbonneau County Club (CCC) recently installed a poolside motorized chair lift at the swimming pool located on the corner of French Prairie Road  and Arbor Lake Drive near the east entrance to Charbonneau.  This was in response to a request from a homeowner whose granddaughter uses a wheelchair.    As far as CCC knows, this is the only pool in Charbonneau, with the exception of SpringRidge.

CCC would like to offer the use of this pool to those residents with need who would enjoy the benefit of thi amenity.  If you have a homeowner who cannot use your neighborhood pool because a disability requires a motorized pool lift, please contact CCC office and we will make arrangements for use of the pool at the east entrance.

Please have interested residents contact Susie at Susie@charbonneaucountryclub.com for more information.

Thank you,

Tony Holt, CCC President”

RV Lot to be repaved next week

Please note that the RV lot is getting repaved next week, starting Sunday July 16th.  All RVs will need to be removed from the RV lot during that time.

In addition to the sewer line construction, we will also all need to be more tolerant and patient with our neighbors, especially those who have RVs that may need to use some of our Guest parking spaces while the RV lot is closed.

It is nice to see the continuation of improvements to our neighborhood and appreciate your understanding during these disruptions to our normal routines.

CHOA now has an AED (automated external defibrillator) at Pool C on Lafayette Dr.

 

Please note that CHOA now has an AED (automated external defibrillator) at Pool C located on Lafayette Dr  right off the Red Course #5 Fairway.  You should be able to use your Pool key to enter the pool area

What is an AED?

According to the Red Cross website:

“An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock can potentially stop an irregular heart beat (arrhythmia) and allow a normal rhythm to resume following sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA occurs when the heart malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly. If not treated within minutes, it quickly leads to death. Most SCAs result from ventricular fibrillation (VF). VF is a rapid and unsynchronized heart rhythm that originates in the heart’s lower chambers (the ventricles). The heart must be “defibrillated” quickly, because a victim’s chance of surviving drops by seven to 10 percent for every minute a normal heartbeat isn’t restored.

Why are AEDs important?

AEDs make it possible for more people to respond to a medical emergency where defibrillation is required. Because AEDs are portable, they can be used by nonmedical people (lay-rescuers). They can be made part of emergency response programs that also include rapid use of 9-1-1 and prompt delivery of cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). All three of these activities are vital to improving survival from SCA.

 How does an AED work?

A built-in computer checks a victim’s heart rhythm through adhesive electrodes. The computer calculates whether defibrillation is needed. If it is, a recorded voice prompts the rescuer to press the shock button on the AED. This shock momentarily stuns the heart and stops all activity. It gives the heart the chance to resume beating effectively. Audible prompts guide the user through the process. AEDs advise a shock only for ventricular fibrillation or another life-threatening condition called pulseless ventricular tachycardia.

Who can use an AED?

Non-medical personnel such as police, fire service personnel, flight attendants, security guards and other lay rescuers who have been trained in CPR can use AEDs. Although formal training in the use of an AED is not required, it is recommended to help the rescuer increase their comfort and level of confidence. However, AEDs are intended for use by the general public. Most AEDs use audible voice prompts to guide the user through the process.

Are AEDs safe to use?

AEDs are safe to use by anyone.”
