Timeline for Connected Community Progress

Connected Community Open House
The purpose of the community summits/open houses are to discuss and receive guidance from Lake Oswego community members on goals and policies associated with each action area. An open house covering the Connected Community action area (along with the Economic Vitality action area) took place on April 12, 2012 at the City of Lake Oswego’s West End Building.  Below are materials from the April 12th open house:
