FIREWORKS — Police and firefighters issued four citations for illegal use of fireworks around the Fourth of July, according to the city. Overall, complaints were down this year in comparison to past seasons; the city received 15 complaint calls during the holiday, compared to last year’s 25, the city reported. Lake Oswego enacted a new ordinance this year to give police and fire department employees the ability to issue local citations.

URBAN RENEWAL — The Lake Oswego Redevelopment Agency board is scheduled to consider a development agreement for the Wizer block downtown at a meeting on Tuesday. The public hearing will begin at 5:30 p.m. at city hall, 380 A Ave.

The next step would be an Aug. 13 meeting to review a proposed design development plan.

SENSITIVE LANDS — The city council recently held a study session related to ongoing efforts to overhaul a program aiming to protect environmentally sensitive lands. The work plan includes notifying owners of private properties with streams, wetlands or tree groves proposed for restrictions in 2008 that their properties are no longer being considered for a sensitive lands designation; developing a free map correction process to help remove existing sensitive lands districts; and researching how other governments in the Metro region comply with certain environmental protection requirements. City staff members are also tasked with preparing an alternative program, despite recent concerns and questions from Metro.
