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

Please Read – Important information on increase of Rodents and Possible Water problems

Please help CHOA maintain our livability.  RATS have been seen and confirmed around (and in some cases below) some houses

We believe this is due to residents feeding the wildlife.

There is only one birdseed that can be used that will not attract Rodents

Janet MCGarrigle did some research to find out what to do:

 I called Backyard Bird Shop where we have been purchasing bird seed for quite a while.  We have only had trouble with one bold squirrel which we have been turning the hose on to scare off.  We have been diligent about cleaning off any spilled seed from our deck surface.  However, we agree that we now need to take further steps.  I learned today  there is a birdseed available that squirrels, rats, skunks, raccoons, and other mammals will not eat – but birds love it.  It’s called:

“HOT MEATS” may be found at:

Backyard Bird Shop

22000 Willamette Drive

West Linn, Or

We do not want Rodents to overtake CHOA, please store your birdseed, that you may already own, in heavy duty containers with lids, clean any left over seed off of decks, etc.

***Golf information:   The golf course is putting in updated irrigation controllers, this MAY cause a disruption in the irrigation around your house.  Have Patience, it will come back on.  In the interim call Steve (see info below) and plan on hand watering until the system is fully upgraded

Another break-in this time on Lake Point Ct

I’m sorry to report that there was another break-in Monday night on Lake Point Ct.  Again a garage door opener was taken from a car parked in the driveway.  The garage was then open and a small bag of tools was taken, some keys, one to the truck parked inside the garage.  This was an attached garage but the house was not entered.

The sheriff and Charbonneau security have been notified.

The Sheriff informed the residents that they believe this is one person operating in Wilsonville.  The same MO if taking the Garage door opener, and breaking-in.  The Sheriff’s department has photos of the truck and the robber, but no face picture as yet as they are always wearing a hoodie.  They are aware and working on catching this person.

The message from the Sheriff’s department, is either don’t leave your garage door opener in the car or make sure it is not visible.  If a garage door opener is spotted, this is a reason to break into the car.  Also, if you have an attached garage, lock the door to the inside of your home.

Also a good idea, even during the day to not leave your garage open – so someone could take inventory of what is in there

HOPEFULLY this is my last post on this subject – Jan

Break in on Fairway Dr, Please be cautious

A car was broken into on Fairway drive on Sunday about 8:30.

Small amount of cash, from the glove box car registration and Insurance and most importantly the garage door opener.

Be sure to lock you car and your garage.  Perhaps think about each night taking your garage door opener into the house, especially if you garage is attached to your house.

The Country Club Security has been notified and the Police are aware.
