Get your party together for National Night Out
The City of Lake Oswego is participating in National Night Out Aug. 6.
The event is intended to encourage residents to get to know their neighbors, and the City believes the best way to do this is to hold a party. To further entice neighborhoods to participate the first 20 neighborhoods to register with the City will receive a visit by a fire truck or police squad car, maybe even a police K9. To make it even better, these firefighters and
police officers will come bearing gifts.
Neighborhood block parties can be big or small. Parties can be held at a park, in a front yard or driveway, or at the end of a cul-de-sac.
Normally if a block party will restrict a public street, a city permit is required, but for this night only, the City will waive the requirement for those who register. If you do need to fully close your street then a permit would still be necessary, but city staff may have ideas, so please give them a call.
To register go to lakeoswego.city/NationalNightOut.
Those with questions should call Bonnie Hirschberger at 503-675-3992.
