Lowering of the Lake

A successful boating season is drawing to a close. It is that time of year again for the lake to go down.

Starting on Oct 3rd, the level will decrease slowly over a two week period with the gates fully open and water at winter depth by October 14th.

SAVE THE DATE: Please mark your calendars to attend our Annual All-Members meeting, November 3, 7:00 p.m. at Fairview City Hall. It is time to review the health of the lake, approve next year’s budget, select new board members and hear an update on Lakeshore Park and Levee Ready Columbia.

URGENT – Meeting on Planned Development at Interlachen Lane and Fairview Lake Way

Attached are a letter and photos of a planned development of the farm land at the corner of Interlachen Lane and Fairview Lake Way, leading up to Marine Drive. It is proposed to build a huge distribution warehouse (372,000 square feet) and parking areas for 257 autos and 57 trailer parking spaces. This affects all the residents who use Interlachen Lane to Marine Drive. It will change the nature of our quiet, country-like neighborhood.

Trammel Crow Company is holding a community “informational meeting” September 12th at Round Table Pizza ( 750 NE 181st) at 6PM. We encourage all residents to attend the company’s presentation.

Before we meet with the company, we will have a meeting of local residents to discuss the proposed development and its impact on all of us. We have reserved the Council Chamber Room at Fairview City Hall, 1300 NE Village Street on Thursday, Sept. 1st, from 7 to 9 P.M. We urge you to attend this important meeting.

At the Sept. 1st meeting, we will poll our neighbors and develop a unified position to discuss the development of the proposed Blue Lake Corporate Park. We are coordinating with Blue Heron Shores 1 and 2, FLPOA, and Interlachen Homeowners Association to brainstorm. All neighbors are invited. We will discuss the issues and what alternatives may be available. We are very concerned about the potential impact of another huge warehouse distribution center in the area; this one right next to our quiet residential community.

Some potential issues:

• Environmental Impact:
• Removal of wetlands and diminished wildlife
• Potential toxic runoff (leaking gas and oil from trucks and other materials)
• Poor air quality from the diesel trucks, heavy truck traffic, and vehicular air pollution
• Construction noise and dust
• Impact of continuous overhead lighting on parking area
• Impact of increased traffic (57 trailer trucks and 257 cars)
• Noise of trucks in the complex
• Diesel fumes
• Additional truck traffic that will compromise the safety of entering and exiting Marine Drive
• Our local streets are not designed for 18-wheelers
• More congestion of traffic at 185th
• Proposing “emergency” access onto Interlachen Lane will endanger our residents as well as bikers at Blue Lake Park
• Possibility of workers trying to avoid Marine Drive by driving through our neighborhood before and after their shift
• Endangerment of our children and residents from increased traffic
• An industrial complex this close to our houses will affect our property values

Please contact Bob Dolphin 503 666-8621 (Bob_Dolphin@msn.com) or Roger Keast 503-735-5813 (rogerk2@yahoo.com) if you need further information.

Please put both dates – Sept 1st and Sept. 12th – on your calendar and plan to attend.

Under my dock I have a tire with a Styrofoam Center with the embedded letters TOPPER.  Not sure if from someone’s floating dock or something I should dispose of.  It is really heavy and I’m not sure how to dispose of it.
My address is 20306 NE Interlachen Lane.
