Neighborhood Watch message from Charbonneau Country Club

Please note that CHOA received the following message from the Country Club:

“Charbonneau Residents:

In the last couple of weeks,  we have seen increased reports of auto theft and auto break-ins in Charbonneau.  This is typically something we only see during the Christmas season. Our Charbonneau security officers are aware of this situation and are patrolling our neighborhoods every night. If you see something or someone that seems out of place in the evenings, please call First Response at 503-207-5300.   If you see a crime in progress, dial 911.  As always, remember to lock your cars and don’t leave valuables in your car.

Jim Meierotto

CCC General Manager”

 

 

 

WHAT YOUR LANDSCAPE COMPANY IS DOING ABOUT COVID-19

Please note that CHOA received the following letter from Garron Grounds:

“WHAT IS YOUR LANDSCAPE COMPANY DOING ABOUT COVID-19

To Our Valued Customers:

A week ago, we brought in a crew to power wash and spray sanitize all vehicles, trailers, and equipment being used on your property.  It was a major effort.

Employees are being screened for any signs of flu or virus and being told to stay home if they or anyone in their family is sick.

They also have been told not to approach any customers or vendors and to keep a six-foot distance.

We have a supply of sanitizing wipes, gloves, N-95 masks, and disinfectant for our equipment.

It is our intent to continue providing services to our clients while providing safeguards to everyone’s health and safety.

Regular sanitizing of our equipment and facilities will continue as well as promoting personal hygiene of our employees.

You have the best regards from your grounds crew.

Ken Bartus, Owner and General Manager”

For your own safety, please stay off the golf course unless golfing

Please note that CHOA received the following note from the Golf Club:

Dear HOA Presidents:

I need your help to correct a very dangerous situation.  A couple of years ago as part of the TWCDI campaign we allowed walking on certain 9’s at certain hours.  That policy was wonderful and worked for a short time until we experienced daily cases of people walking at all times while golfers were playing, which made for one very dangerous situation after another.  Once that dangerous situation became the norm, I asked the CGC Board of Directors to restrict walking completely.  This has been and continues to be Charbonneau Golf Course official policy.

Over the last four months or so there has a been large increase in residents walking, jogging, biking and walking their dogs or allowing their dogs to run on the golf course.  Even though the Red nine is closed for winter, the policy of not walking on the golf course remains the same.

I am asking if you could send an email out on the CGC’s behalf to your residents asking them to abide by this very crucial policy.  We are trying to protect everyone involved with this policy and keep everyone safe.

***We will be working with CCC to evaluate the policy as soon as practical.  Policy updates will be announced as appropriate.  Until then, the current policy stands.

As the signs state around the entrances of the golf course property:

FOR EVERYONE’S SAFETY, PLEASE….

NO WALKING

NO JOGGING

NO BICYCLES

NO DOGS

ON THE GOLF COURSE

…..THANK YOU

 

INSTACART HOME DELIVERY- Information from the CCC Emergency Preparedness/Public Safety Committee

In our area, Instacart handles home deliveries from the following stores: Fred Meyer, Safeway, Costco, Target, New Seasons and Petco.  Instacart is an independent contractor that allows you to shop at these stores online, then sends a “personal shopper” to fulfill and deliver your order. This personal shopper goes to the store, picks up everything on your list, and then drives it to you in their own car. How to begin:

  • Go to https://www.instacart.com/ The opening page may be for a particular store, like Fred Meyer. To the left of your screen, click on a drop-down menu “STORES” and select the store you want.
  • You will need to sign-up with Instacart, the process is very straight forward.
  • Select the store you want and begin shopping Understand that Instacart has nothing to do with how the prices are set. Typically, you might have to pay a little more for most items through Instacart than if you were shopping in real life. NOTE: Some folks have found shopping on the Fred Meyer website (rather than on Instacart’s) is more user friendly. Instacart will still be delivering your items, the order is just done on the FM website.
  • Instacart shoppers are shopping at the same stores as the rest of the American public. Which means, right now, lots of products may not be available. The app and website usually does a good job to warn you if something is low or out of stock, but know that you might not receive everything you request in your order. (Your total price will be corrected to accurately reflect what you did receive.)
  • Delivery costs are typically about $10.00
  • You can opt to have items left at your door
  • You can choose a delivery day and time window
  • ABOUT TIPPING:Tips are strongly encouraged. $5 or 20 percent of the total bill is typical but with everything going on right now, you may want to consider even more, if you are in the position to do so. Most people don’t want to leave their houses right now and your Instacart shopper might be taking this job because the money is desperately needed. Please, do what you can to support them.

Pros:

Very convenient,

Thorough online selection, close to what you’d find in-store

Ability to order from stores beyond supermarkets

Access to Costco even without a membership

Friendly personal shoppers and an easy ordering experience; shoppers are communicative if there are any issues or substitutions

Cons:

Can’t be too choosy particularly right now when some supplies are low

Prices vary from actual in-store prices, which means you could pay a premium (but not always).

Experience:

Reports from residents who have used Instacart are favorable. Personal shoppers seem to communicate very well via text.
