Carriage Way Greenspace Clean-Up

The SOLVE event to clean up our greenspace along Carriage Way was a big success! Held on April 10th, 48 volunteers from SOLVE, West Linn, Beaverton and Portland worked together to clean up a big part of the mess created by the ice storm.  Teams spread out and a majority of the tree damage has been moved to piles for future chipping.  A heartfelt thank you goes to all who participated with a special mention going to the incredible group of people who made this day possible. Wendy Larlee, Roger and Eileen Wende, Andrew Calkins, Keith Kernes Evonne, Leonard and Margaret Sawchuk, Karen Art - thank you all for your invaluable planning and leadership. The April 10th SOLVE event made future clean-up events possible, and we will continue the work to restore the green space to safe and healthy conditions.  The next event will take place May 8th and we encourage you to come join us and be a part of the solution.

New Pool Ramp, (May, 2017)

Our HOA neighborhood pool has a ramp! The old stairs have been replaced with a ramp allowing for wheelchair and stroller access to the pool. The ramp also has a new picnic table for picnicking next to the pool. The pool also got some improvements, including a new hydrazzo polished finish (it will last much longer than traditional plaster) and new chaise lounges. In addition, sidewalks and walkways in front of the pool and tennis courts have also been repaired.    5369b09b0d5c2b089e2bb968a22c8301.jpg

Mail Thefts (December, 2016)

There have been a number of mail thefts in West Linn and also within our neighborhood. The West Linn police and Post Office are advising residents to pick up their mail every day. Mail should not be left for days in the box. If you are unable to collect your mail for a more than a day please have your mail held at the post office.

Jan 17, 2017 - Update One woman has been arrested for December mail thefts associated with our neighborhood. She has been arrested before and was released. She is also wanted in Washington. There will be a hearing at the Clackamas County Courthouse in Oregon City on February 24th at 8:30am. The sheriff’s office has provided the following link to a Victim Notification Network,, SID# 13290487, where her status can be tracked.

While one thief has been identified there may be others who still have copies of the West Linn master key. Please continue to be diligent about picking up your mail daily and having your mail held by the post office if you will be out of town. If you are a victim of mail theft, please report the incident to both the post office and the police.

Dec 5, 2016 - The following is being shared as a security alert/advisory from information received from HOA members...

Sunburst Terrace HOA has had two families in the Townhomes that have had all their mail stolen from our new boxes. Both talked with the Postmaster and the West Linn Police. Both the police and post office indicated that they are aware of other thefts and have received numerous reports from the Sunburst/Suncrest area. Similar reports have been received from all over West Linn and Lake Oswego within the past 1-2 months.

According to the West Linn Police the thieves may be popping open the boxes late at night. The thieves are also targeting the parcel boxes that are missing keys because they know there is something in the box. The police stated that there may be a special type of wrench that just pops the box open without damaging the box or that a master key may have been stolen. Both indicated that it is a major issue for them.

If your mail is stolen please contact the West Linn Police and the post office. Additionally, based on the above reports, I would also appreciate knowing if your mail is stolen so the association can keep everyone informed about what is happening and what is being done to secure our mail.
