CHOA to participate in the Great Shakeout Drill Thursday October 17th

On Thursday, 10/17, at 10:17AM, CHOA and all of Charbonneau will be participating in the Great Oregon ShakeOut drill!  Why is it important to do a Drop, Cover, and Hold On drill? The Oregon Office of Emergency Management reminds us: “To react quickly you must practice often. You may only have seconds to protect yourself in an earthquake, before strong shaking knocks you down–or drops something on you. Practicing helps you be ready to respond.

Homeowner Associations participating in the drill will hand out free raffle tickets to residents taking part! Each HOA will have prizes to award!   REMEMBER: In any disaster, your most immediate source of help are the people living around you!   Additional information is available in the clubhouse.

Your CHOA Emergency Preparedness Team will be bringing around materials for our participation and we hope EVERYONE will be involved!

 

 

September 21st 10:00 am Neighborhood watch training

Officer Sara McClurg will present information and training on how to set up a Neighborhood watch with your closest neighbors (ideally 5 residents)

When: Saturday September 21st at 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Where: Rec Hall C on Lafaeyette

Please talk with your neighbors and plan to attend as a group.

We will need to confirm who will be attending so that Sara can bring the right amount of training materials.

Please let us know in the comments if you plan to attend

I sent email reminders to all of those who committed to come.  There is room for more

 

This will be a 90 minute presentation where you will learn how to set up a phone tree and email group to notify your neighbors of any suspicious activities.  This is a good way to get to know your neighbors better.

 

 

Information from the September 11th Board meeting

Request that the pools remain open longer

  • Based on the weather on Monday 9/16 all pools except A pool (Boones Bend Pool) will close.
    • This decision was based on the fact that cooler temperatures during the evening hours increase the cost of heating the pools for day time use
      • Note: Pool A is located off of Boones Bend on Boones Bend RD/Street/cul-de-sac
    • Pool A (on Boones Bend Rd)was chosen to stay open until 9/27 because it has a hot tub and the most parking available

Winter use of the Springridge pool is available to all Charbonneau residents:

      • Adult  Open Swim 6:00 am to 7:00 am
      • Water Aerobics Class information Contact Helen Heestand for class information at 503-694-2192
        • Note: Robin Shultz called and Helen Heestand states that the pool will be closed starting September 23 for several weeks due to a new roof being put on

Update on safety efforts to address speed on our roads

  •  At the October Board Meeting (10/9 at 6:00 pm)  we have a representative from the City of Wilsonville who is attending our board meeting to discuss what can be done
  • We encourage residents to attend so that the City can see that this is an important safety issue for our community
  •  We will have more documented information at that time from the city on the traffic and speed on the two main streets in CHOA

Reminder- September is Emergency Preparedness Month


Please don’t throw away your copy of the September Boones Ferry Messenger from the City of Wilsonville.  All of page 5 contains important information from FEMA and other sources about getting your home ready for an emergency.  Everything in those articles complements what your own CHOA Emergency Preparedness Team is developing to help in the event of an emergency that leaves Charbonneau isolated for a day or more.  Doing some preparation will ready us for the state-wide practice drill, The Great Oregon Shakeout, which takes place October 17, 2019, at 10-17 in the morning.  Let’s all “be prepared.”    

Reminder- Feeding of Wild birds or animals except Hummingbirds is Prohibited in CHOA

As you know, we have seen an increase in the number of wild animals in Charbonneau- there have been recent reports and sightings of a Cougar, Coyotes, Skunks, Racoons, Rats and Mice.

In order to try to stem this trend, we want to help eliminate as much of their food sources as possible.  Therefore, we are asking that each CHOA neighbor refrain from feeding any animals and/or birds anywhere in CHOA or around your home except for Hummingbirds.  This includes inside your courtyard also.

In addition, please feed your pets indoors only and don’t leave them unsupervised outside.

Thanks in advance for your help here to make CHOA a safer neighborhood.

Slow Down signs on Boones Bend and Fairway Dr

Slow Down Signs for two of our busiest streets.

In CHOA we have two roads that are used more frequently than other roads; Fairway Dr and Boones Bend.  These roads are used by residents, contractors and guests.  In addition to vehicle traffic, most of our roads are used by residents as walking and biking paths. 

For some time CHOA has been concerned with the legal speed of 25 mph.   25mph is too fast when cars are parked illegally, contractors are parked while unloading, and there are walkers or bikers too.

In July CHOA did a speed study on Fairway Dr. The result, almost all drivers were traveling at 25 mph or lower.

 We are asking CHOA residents to drive at a speed closer to 15-20 mph.  We ask walkers and bikers to take responsibility for their own safety by staying close to the side of the street.

We are working with the city to monitor the speed and possible solutions to protect the safety of all of our residents.

Please note new additions to CHOA Emergency Preparedness Team
