When are the pools opening?

When are the CHOA Pools Opening?

As you may know, the Governor has limited the use of all public pools in the state during the Phase 1 of the reopening of Oregon. Clackamas County (including Charbonneau) is currently in Phase 1. It is anticipated that Clackamas County will reach Phase 2 in mid to late June. When that milestone is reached, we believe we will be able to open the Pools with new social distancing and sanitary rules.

We will continue to monitor this situation and keep you informed as we know more.

The CHOA Board

Please Return Your Ballots If You Haven’t Done So!

Please note that starting Wednesday morning May 13th at about 9:00 am (subject to change due to weather or work schedules) Garron Grounds will have a limited supply of  hanging flower baskets available for $25 each at the E pool area on Winchester. Make your choice and place your check made out to Garron Grounds in the lock box.

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.

Irrigation water system down until Monday

Please note that CHOA received the following note from the Golf Course/Water Company:

“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

PGA General Manager

Charbonneau Golf Club / Charbonneau Water Co.”

Charbonneau Ladies Niners Golf Club commends neighbors

Please see the following message from the Charbonneau Ladies Golf Club:

“Congratulations to all the Charbonneau residents participating in the Easter Sunday event to say Thank You to our Local First Responders and Medical Personnel.

The city of Wilsonville Police Department and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue Department provided manpower and vehicles with lights and sirens ablazin’, to drive through the area.

The photographer for the Villager and the Easter Bunny (thanks Nancy Larsen) toured many of the homes on side streets in the area – especially those that notified us of having special displays.  While the Fire and Police weren’t able to get down every street in the neighborhood, they expressed how touched and appreciative they were with the rousing response from all our neighborhoods.  Watch for future editions of the Villager to see some of the many photos taken.

So, FANTASTIC JOB, Charbonneau residents!   Once again, you’ve shown what great neighbors you are.

Special thanks also to Dominoes Pizza, Wilsonville, for their generous donation of pizzas to both TVFR Station 52 and the Wilsonville Police Dept.”
