        The Lake Township trustees have agreed to a request to rezone two parcels covering 2.3 acres along Woodville Road from R-2 residential to B-2 general commercial but included two stipulations.

        Jim Mlynek, who owns Woodville Road Nursery, sought the zoning change. He is using the parcels to temporarily store leaf piles before composting them at his nursery on the other side of Woodville Road.

        Oregon City Council on Monday accepted bids from three contractors for the 2018 Roadway Improvement Program. The three will share in the work, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman.

       Council approved the bids of Bowers Asphalt & Paving, Inc., Quinn Concrete Construction, and Henry W. Bergman, Inc. The total cost of the project is $1,293,508.

        Oregon City Council on Monday approved an agreement with Mannik & Smith Group, Inc., Maumee, to provide professional engineering services for the Urban Runoff Capture and Otter Creek Restoration Project.

        A Navarre-Dustin-Isaac Streets stakeholder’s meeting will be held on June 5 at 9 a.m. in Oregon Council Chambers to discuss projects along Navarre Avenue.

        •Navarre Avenue Safety Grant and possible future applications;

        •Public art in the downtown Oregon areas;

        •Food trucks at the Farmer’s Market.

        Although the meeting is public, City Administrator Mike Beazley said the city wants to get input from stakeholders along Navarre Avenue – those who would be impacted the most by the projects under discussion.
