With inflation, the city of Lake Oswego figured it had to offer more than a penny to get at its citizens’ thoughts.
So as part of its upcoming Community Health and Public Safety and Healthy Ecosystems Fair on Saturday, August 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., citizens are invited to complete an online questionnaire between August 24 and September 14 to become eligible to win one of five boxes of fresh veggies grown at Luscher Farm and donated by 47th Avenue Farms.
The questionnaire has to do with citizens’ views on public safety and facilities, energy and climate change, natural hazards, solid waste, open space, local food options, natural resources and areas, wetlands, and community health. It’s all part of the City’s effort to update its Comprehensive Plan, its road map for policy and planning.
Citizens can offer their viewpoints in person too at the fair. Interactive booths and displays will give them an opportunity to learn more about:
●How to prepare yourself and your neighbors for emergencies
●How to sort your trash to minimize waste
●Non-toxic household products
There is incentive for little citizens-in-training too. Kids who get a Fair passport stamped at each booth will be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate from Frog Pond Toys in Lakeview Village. And the Fire Department’s 1923 GMC Fire Engine will be on hand for exploring.
