SHORT-TERM RENTALS SURVEY: City officials are conducting an online survey in an effort to understand Lake Oswego residents' opinions regarding short-term rentals (STRs). Among the issues: What concerns may arise if STRs are allowed but not properly regulated, and what opportunities might be lost if STRs continue to be prohibited? Responses will be used in the preparation of a draft ordinance for public review and a hearing by the Planning Commission in late 2018 or early 2019. To take the survey, go to www.ci.oswego.or.us/planning/short-term-rentals.
D AVENUE UPDATE: The first base layer of asphalt has been placed and D Avenue is now open between First and Tenth streets. Intermittent daytime closures will continue through the fall, however, as crews work on the final stages of the project. In late September, crews will rebuild new pedestrian curb ramps and repave the intersection at State Street and D Avenue; at that time, the outer southbound lane on State Street at the intersection of D Avenue will be closed 24/7 for about a week. For more information, go to www.d-ave.org.
HISTORIC RESOURCES ADVISORY BOARD (SEPT. 20): HRAB will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Shipley-Cooke Farm (18451 S.W. Stafford Road). Details: www.ci.oswego.or.us/boc_hrab/historic-resources-advisory-board-81.
FARMERS MARKET (SEPT. 22): The Lake Oswego Farmers Market returns to Millennium Plaza Park (200 First St.) on Saturday, with more than 80 vendors offering fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, cheeses, baked goods, hot foods, artisan products and nursery items. Hours are 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT (SEPT. 24): Running out of room on your couch? Head to Family Movie Night at 6 p.m. Monday and let the folks at the Lake Oswego Public Library (706 Fourth St.) provide the big screen, cozy blankets to sit on and snacks. The library is prohibited by its movie licensing agreement from using movie titles in publicity, but here's a hint: Think of an animated movie about an island where dogs were exiled and not everyone is happy about it.
PLANNING COMMISSION (SEPT. 24): The Planning Commission will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall (380 A Ave.). Details: www.ci.oswego.or.us/boc_pc/planning-commission-79.
