Northwood wants to increase appeal of outparcel
Written by Kelly Kaczala

Northwood’s Economic Development Committee is looking into making an outparcel off Curtis Road more attractive for future economic development.

“It’s been there a long time,” said Councilman Dave Gallaher, chairman of the committee. He brought up the matter at a council meeting on Jan. 4.

“It’s a nice location. You have to ask why it isn’t being developed, in spite of the economy. Is there something we can do to help that process along?” said Gallaher after the meeting.

The parcel is between Appleby’s Restaurant and I-280 on Curtis Road.

 
Damaged irrigation systems not Oregon’s fault

The cold and icy weather last month caused some snow plows in Oregon to damage some irrigation systems in the city right-of-way, which angered some residents, according to Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian.

“We had a couple of people complain that city snow plows have hit irrigation systems just off the curb and they are fairly angry, thinking the city is responsible for that,” said Seferian at a council meeting last month.

One of the complaints was from a resident located in the Sweetwater addition, on the west side of Pearson Metropark.

Residents’ anger is misdirected, however, said Seferian, because the city is not at fault. Residents who put in the irrigation systems are responsible for their repair.

“Irrigation systems are not a permitted use in the public right-of-way, and that’s where these have been damaged,” he said.

A formal recommendation to close the Rocky Ridge Elementary School building is expected to be presented this week to the Benton-Carroll-Salem Board of Education.

Superintendent Diane Kershaw, who recommended the closing to the board at its Dec. 15 special meeting, said declining enrollment is the primary reason for the facility and finance committees to decide closing the school is the best option for the district.

The board is scheduled to meet Jan. 11.

“Due to declining enrollment, we have an opportunity to combine our elementary buildings which will lead to additional operational efficiencies,” she said in a prepared statement.
