The Hectorcampbell NDA meets the second Monday of every month at 6:30pm in the Community Room of the Public Safety Building: 3200 SE Harrison Street, Milwaukie, OR

Monday, May 25, 2009

Local garbage companies, the City of Milwaukie, Clackamas County, and Metro are hosting a joint Milwaukie and Overland Park clean-up event on Saturday, June 6, from 8 a.m. to 1p.m.
Sites for collection will be the former Southgate Theater lot at 9600 SE Main St. and at the Crosswhite Industrial Park at 64th & Johnson Creek Blvd.
The purpose of this event is to help residents get rid of “bulky” waste items--not household garbage or hazardous materials. There is no cost to drop off one load of waste, however you will need ID AND a coupon from the May Pilot.
Volunteers are needed to help people unload their stuff. After you drop-off your load, why not stay for a couple of hours and help out! Give Beth Ragel a call at (503) 786-7568 and get on the volunteer list.

May Meeting Highlights

Our May meeting had a small turnout, however we still managed to have a meeting that touched on many concerns and events, and we elected our new officers.

Wendy Hemmen Told us about her job as Milwaukie's Light Rail Design Coordinator; she updated us on the project and invited us to attend the monthly light rail meetings. Officer Glenn told us that crime-wise out neighborhood was pretty quiet; some neighbors asked him about the school zone on RR Avenue; we all wondered if a school zone was necessary on RR Ave. We talked about the Counties plan to redevelop the Hillside Park/ Hillside Manor in the South Ardenwald area; we decided it would be good to have someone from the Ardenwald come to one of our meetings to update us on the project as well as share their neighborhoods concerns about the project with us.

We voted on our neighborhood's leadership for the next year:
Chair Person: Mary Weaver
Vice Chair: Jeff Louden
Secretary: Linda Hedges
Treasurer: David Aschenbrenner

We entertained the idea of taking the summer off from meetings, however with Light Rail and the Hillside Manor/South Ardenwald re-development issues, we decided we best plan to meet every month. Our August meeting will be held the week of National Night Out, in Homewood Park.
