The Molalla Community Planning Organization will be holding a special meeting on Wednesday. Nov. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Molalla Public Library. This meeting will be to discuss the proposed change in land use regulations included in ZDO-271: Marijuana Production License Limits. A public hearing before the Planning Commission will be held Nov. 26, and we would like to get input prior to that hearing.

Time permitting, we will also discuss the Clackamas County Vehicle Registration Fee. Clackamas County has scheduled a meeting on Monday, Nov. 19 at the Molalla Public Library for that discussion. There will be no regular business meeting at this time.


Once again, this year the Kiwanis Club of Molalla, along with ACE hardware, will be heading the Santa Letter project. All children in the Community are welcome to participate and ask Santa what they would enjoy seeing under their Christmas tree this year.

The program will start Monday, Nov. 26 and run through Dec. 20. Be sure to include a return address for Santa to answer back. He has so many letters that it is easier for him if he has the right return address.  There will be mail boxes posted at ACE Hardware. Be sure to drop them there in plenty of time for an answer. Kiwanis and Ace wish all a merry Christmas.
