District clears land on Molalla Avenue

Konell Construction and Demolition Corp. is scheduled this week to raze the dilapidated single-family home and two sheds at the property at 314 Pleasant Ave. in Oregon City, which the Clackamas County Soil and Water Conservation District purchased earlier last year.

Also to remove trash, plant-debris piles and stumps on the one-acre property, the district will pay Konell $23,700. Although it could be Clackamas County’s conservation headquarters someday, the district renewed its office lease across the street for another five years while it works with “thoughtful intention to improve these two properties to become primary teaching tools.”

On Sept. 17, District Manager Tom Salzer also gave his governing board an informational update about recent Beavercreek farm preparations for winter. Borrowing $327,500 to purchase a 15-acre farm in Beavercreek in June, the district covered the other half of the purchase price through its Building Reserve Fund.

The board of directors will meet to discuss plans for the farm property in Beavercreek. That meeting is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the district’s office, 221 Molalla Ave., Suite 102, Oregon City.
