OSCH Road Closure Update – June 24 - September 30

The San Jose Water Montevina pipe replacement project began June 24th. The first part of this project, locating the pipes, has been completed. They are currently in the next stage of the project which includes closing Old Santa Cruz Hwy.from Idylwild to Ogallala Warpath (lower park entrance) as they dig up the street and replace the pipes. The crew will be working  during the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for the next few weeks. OSCH will be opened at the end of each day, after construction.

Lower Comanche Roadwork (5/28)

Dear Residents of Chemeketa Park:

Construction to build the long-awaited retaining wall on Lower Comanche will begin next week. This is an important infrastructure project to keep that section of road from failing with more rain.

Equipment will be put in place this Monday, May 27th. The project should begin Tuesday, May 28 and take 6-8 days. 

Please be aware that there will be road closures in the area of Lower Comanche near Assinboine. As soon as there are more details about which roads will be blocked and the hours the work will be taking place, we will send another notice out. Please notify your neighbors if you live in this area of the park. We will also ask the POD Leaders to get the word out.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Trash drop-offs 5/18, 6/8, and 6/9

There are two upcoming events that help make it easy to get rid of trash. There is a trash drop off at Holy City on Saturday, May 18th, 8am till 11am, where e-waste, batteries and fluorescent bulbs along with large debris items will be accepted, but not Hazardous Household Waste (HHW). Second, we have the Chemeketa Park Dumpster Weekend June 8th and 9th (watch for more details in a few weeks). The dumpsters are for big debris items that do not fit in your waste bin, and are NOT e-waste or hazardous. Keeping our community tidy in one of many ways we can reduce fire danger along with keeping the forest healthy as well. 

Also, we are considering a Hazardous Household Waste pickup, but would like your input on our Poll (hosted on Nextdoor)
