Neighborhood Watch – Volunteers Needed!

Please note that CHOA is considering creating a Neighborhood Watch program.  Several HOAs in Charbonneau already have them.  Since we have volunteers for the Board and the Emergency Preparedness program, we are seeking volunteers to lead a Neighborhood Watch program if there is enough interest in our community.

 If you are interested in leading or volunteering as a member of a Neighborhood Watch Committee, please let us know by the end of August.

 If interested, please contact Barry Hendrix at hbconsulting@gmail.com or 503-754-0322.

 Thanks!

Karen Siegel – CHOA Landscape Chair

I am happy to let you know that once again we will be spreading bark dust along the street frontages in CHOA.  Rexius will begin the project the week of July 20.  They will be blowing dark hemlock bark in planting areas along the street fronts.

If you  have questions, please contact me or Steve Chinn.

RV Yard entrance blocked for Sewer Project

The Project Manager for the sewer project provided an update that the RV Yard entrance will not be blocked the rest of this week or next week. If there are short, periodic blocks, vehicles will still be able to pass through.

However, from Monday, July 6th through the end of the day on Tuesday, July 7th, the entrance will be blocked.

We will pass along any information we receive as it pertains to this situation.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

thank you ~

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  Skunks, Raccoons, Rats and Mice.  Also, the local Squirrel population is getting larger.  They like to chew on the sprinkler heads which can destroy them and then we have to spend CHOA funds to replace the sprinkler heads.

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.

Reminder- CHOA homeowners: Please return your Primary Election ballots

Residents of the CHOA are reminded that they should return their mail-in ballots for the Tuesday, May 19 primary election as soon as possible.  Ballots must be received by the elections office no later than 8:00 pm on election.   This is made easy since all registered voters are provided a stamped self-addressed envelope in which to return their ballot.

This election is particularly important because it includes Measure 3-556 which, if approved, would limit the number of terms that Wilsonville’s mayor and city councilors could serve.  And it would be retroactive.  Whatever you decide on this measure and on other contests, make your vote count by returning your ballot soon.

“I am sorry to have to send you all this notice.  We have unfortunately run into a major issue with the pumps and must do immediate repairs.  So, as of today the pumps and we will not be able to supply irrigation water till Monday.

Thanks and again sorry for the inconvenience,

Chris Bensel
