Information from June Board Meeting


At the Annual Meeting there was a request for an earlier Gutter Cleaning:

  • Per CHOA’s budget there is only one cleaning a year,  For the winter 2019/2020  gutter cleaning will start in November and continue until all homes are completed.
  •  A flyer will be left on your door or gate, informing you that your home’s gutters have been cleaned
  • You as a homeowner will be responsible for any additional gutter cleanings.
  • Please contact Steve for a list of contractors that have been used in Charbonneau.  We cannot put the list on the website legally.

Irrigation Concerns:

  • At the start of the season, the irrigation system was off on several days, and so the irrigation system could not be tested for repairs/adjustments
  • Currently there are three full time irrigation people working to get all systems up and running
  • If you have a system that does not seem to be functioning properly, please contact Steve so that he can get the information to these three people
  • Be patient and know that work is being done.  You may need to hand water until all systems are up and running
Golf course side note: The golf course has recently spent over 100, 000 to upgrade the course sprinklers, this should result in better irrigation there too.

Hope to see you Saturday (6/15) at the REC HALL open house to celebrate our addition of a kitchen.  From 10:00 am to 3:00 pm 8298 SW Lafayette

Each of the question that brought up during our Open Forum were addressed at our board meeting on May 8th:

  • Concern about the speed of traffic on Fairway Dr and the safety of walkers especially
    • Many of the board members took the time to drive at different speeds on Fairway Dr and observe the speed limit in other parts of Charbonneau.  It was felt that the speed of 25 miles per hour was too fast for our small street, even though it is an accepted speed in Residential Areas.
    • Robin Shultz our new Ad Hoc member will work with Karen Lourie and the City of Wilsonville to solve the problem; hopefully new signage
  • Parking on the street and concern about the need for safety of emergency vehicles access
    • Robin Shultz and Steve Chinn will work with the City of Wilsonville to see if we can get more No Parking signs on our streets
  • The current gutter cleaning schedule, request to have it earlier.  Now scheduled for January and February
    • Steve Chinn will work with the contractor to see if we can move our one, per year, Gutter cleaning to November and December
  • Chimney’s in need of cleaning
    • Ron Reiter and Steve will do a drive through our neighborhoods to look at both Chimney’s and Roofs and then send letters to residents who need to clean the moss/mold from the External Chimney area or Roof area.  A suggested contract list will be provided with each letter.
    • External ascetic’s is important to maintain value of all our homes



Poker table/dining room table for Free

Large Poker table with a removal top that can be turned over to become a poker table

for Free

At the Rec Hall there is a Large wood table and 4 chairs that we would like to find a loving home for.

The table can be used as a dining room table or if you flip the top over it becomes a poker table.  Because the Rec Hall is a multi use area a large wood table that can not be folded up is not practical anymore.

We are willing to let the table go to a loving home for Free if someone is willing to come and take it.  You would need a pick up trunk and some strong lifters.

We need to get the table out of the Rec Hall (8298 SW Lafayette) by the end of Sunday 2/17.  Please contact Jan Landis at 503-550-7264.  Please leave a message and someone will get back to you.

Future Kitchen at the Rec Hall – Let us know what you think

The board has been investigating the costs and possibility of having a Kitchen at the Rec Hall on Lafayette St.  We now have a drawing (draft) and have some estimated costs that match our budget and feel it is a plausible endeavor

Now that we have more information, we wanted to inform our residents to make sure that a kitchen is something that would be of value to all and to capture any additional ideas.

Because our master cabinet maker, who did the drawings, is leaving in October, we need to get a final OK back to him soon, so any feedback needs to be given in the next week or two.

On  September 20th, Thursday afternoon at 2:00pm, we are having an informal meeting at the Rec Hall to discuss the Kitchen.  We will have the drawings there to view.

If you are interested in seeing the drawings or just would like to be part of the discussion, please let us know so that we can plan on your attendance

There is an Alligator in my pool (and now ants)

The Ducks have decided that some of our pools are new ponds for them to play in.  Ducks are fun, except when they leave reminders of their visit.

To help keep the pools clean of “debris” we  recently purchased an Articulating Alligator to see if this device would discourage the ducks.  The pool we chose to trial the alligator in was F&G pool.  Unfortunately, the Alligator was viewed as a toy and ended up in pieces in the surrounding yard.

Karen Siegel was able to reassemble the Alligator so that we can continue to use it.

Please if you see the Alligator in your pool, it is not a toy.

I know that for some the Alligator can be a temptation.  If you need to, you can remove the Alligator device while you are in the pool.  Ducks don’t usually land when people are present.  Just remember to put the Alligator back in before you leave.


Thanks for your help.

While we’re on the subject of keeping our pools clean………

Remember, there is no eating in the pool area.

We do have a service that helps keep our pools clean and usable.  That said, food debris attracts ants and other wildlife.  In addition to the regular pool cleaning service paid for out of your HOA dues, treatment for ants is an extra cost that should not be needed if food is only consumed in areas outside of the pool.
