The NET Officers have told us not to intervene ourselves. They tell us to get enough information and to call.

That is the correct course of action, Catherine.

We can do help with that messaging.

On the BOEC website, https://www.portland.gov/911, there are links which tell when to call 911 and when to call non-emergency.

Does the fire levy include a new fire station?
Chris Fast (nwna)
01:03:01
I also noticed that we can “text” 911. I know from working in conjunction with call centers that an agent can handle one call at a time, but can handle 2 or sometimes 3 active chat/text contacts at once.
Catherine Nicewood
01:03:14
Is the general updating of the fire stations included in the general budget?

• Wildfire Risk Map Released: Last week, the state released an interactive map on wildfire risk that outlines areas of none, low, moderate, high, and extreme levels of risk. The map, which was a requirement of SB 762 (2022), additionally defines the wildlife-urban interface, which highlights areas of vegetation prone to fire. Properties determined as high or extreme risk are subject to building codes for new construction, effective 2023. Owners have 60 days to appeal their appointed risk.

Speeding is still an issue in our neighborhood.
Mary Edmeades

We are also very interested in the tree canopy conversations.

I have a link for a petition to sign to get put on a traffic study for speeding if you don't have it

It was the 'city attorney/s suggestion for the coordination committee because it is in the 'city 'charter.
Mary Edmeades

Lastly - thank you again everyone for the work on the Preservation of Shaull Woods. Based on the last couple of days, it would be hard to see this plot of land that wasn't lush and green. Have a wonderful evening everyone. Thank you everyone for your great work. Thank you Nina for all the hard work.
