Please be aware that Paid signature gatherers are in Charbonneau

Hello, everyone,

It has been called to our attention that paid signature gatherers are circulating today in the neighborhood attempting to persuade charbonneau residents to sign a petition that would place a measure on the ballot that would limit terms on the wilsonville city council.  Further, at least one of the paid gatherers is representing herself as working for the Wilsonville City Council.  No matter what your feelings/beliefs about term limits, I am sure you will agree that such representation is both unethical and inappropriate.  The City Council is not advocating anything of the sort.
But as for term limits, I would submit that we already have them in place.  They are called elections. For the City Council, they occur every two years when either two or three councilors are elected.  Artificial term limits, such as those being proposed, are nothing more than attempts to deprive us of much needed expertise, skills, and experience provided by those who have served us for several years.  Please respond as you see fit to these paid signature gatherers.
Bob Harland

Gutters:

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

Fraud Alert-Fake E-Mail from the “Country Club”. Do not open!

Please note that some of our Neighbors have received an email to Charbonneau residents that appears to be from the Charbonneau Country Club with the Subject: Charbonneau Golf Club Members Notice.

It is being sent from another email address and is fraud. Don’t open any of the attachments and delete this email.

This is a great reminder to always check who the sender of an email is and verify it is coming from a legitimate email address. If you inadvertently opened the attachment, please contact an IT expert to help you learn what to do after clicking on a suspicious link.

Thank you,

Jim Meierotto, General Manager- Charbonneau Country Club

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.

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
