Ardenwald NDA to meet about Balfour House

NOTICE: Public Meeting to Discuss the Balfour Street Secure Residential Treatment Facility

Tuesday, November 11th at 6:30 pm in the Ardenwald Elementary School cafeteria (8950 SE 36th Ave).

· ColumbiaCare intends to build an 8,500 ft², 15 bed lock down facility at 2808 SE Balfour Street to house people from the Oregon State Hospital found guilty except for insanity of crimes such as assault, arson, child molestation, rape, and even murder.

· Jennifer Jones, Executive Asst. of ColumbiaCare will be in attendance to answer questions. This will be our best chance to make certain they understand the neighborhood’s objections to this complex. Your attendance is vitally important. Together we can protect our community!

· Clackamas Co Commissioner Peterson, Cindy Becker- DHS, Rep Carolyn Tomei, Mary Claire Buckley- PSRB, and several state officials will also be in attendance.

· This Q&A session will take place during the Ardenwald/Johnson Creek Neighborhood Association meeting Tuesday, November 11th at 6:30 pm in the Ardenwald Elementary School cafeteria (8950 SE 36th Ave).

· Visit www.Ardenwald.org/balfour.html for more information. Also, please visit www.ipetitions.com/petition/treatmentfacilities and sign the online petition.

While this proposed facility is not in the Hector Campbell Neighborhood, Milwaukie neighborhoods need to stand together on this important issue; the Ardenwald Neighborhood needs our help. Only by standing together will this fight be won!
