Oswego Lake Access:
Y0u may or may not be keeping up with all the goings on regarding access to Oswego Lake. Oswego Lake is a private lake. This is an important piece of knowledge if you plan on relocating to Lake Oswego with the intention of enjoying the lake itself. Only shareholders and easement members have access to the lake. If you have questions about this or where you should look for a home with access, please let us know. Even if you don’t decide to purchase one of the Lake Oswego waterfront homes for sale, there are easements associated with some of the Lake Oswego neighborhoods. Not all neighborhoods have easements and some neighborhoods have multiple easements. There are some details that are important to know about.
Lake Oswego Corporation released this statement to the press yesterday morning:
” We are pleased with the court’s decision. The court decided that the claims had no merit and neither our city nor State can be compelled to provide public access to Oswego Lake. The lawsuit did nothing to change the City’s regulations for the safe use of its parks, or the restrictions on access to and the private status of Lakewood Bay and Oswego Lake. We hope this decision will end the needless litigation and allow our City to devote its resources to priorities other than defending itself in court. The Lake Oswego Corporation remains committed to supporting the court’s decision. “
There are some interesting upcoming events at the Lake Oswego Public Library this month.
The library is located in Lake Oswego’s First Addition neighborhood and is quite an asset to our community!

Home Swapping: Of particular interest and note to me is the fascinating idea of home swapping by Sara Tetreault. At first, I was thinking it was a new way to buy a house, but it is actually a quite brilliant way to go on vacation. According to the write up on Ms. Tetreault, she has complated 10 home exchanges in 9 years! That is crafty! She is speaking at the library about home swapping basics and providing information about using home swapping as a way of travel.

Third Tuesday Author Series
Alan Corson: Tuesday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m.
Why should you attend this presentation? Take it from the back cover of Corson’s book: “Think about where you are right now. How well would you and your family fare if today, right now, you were suddenly faced with an enormous disaster – a massive earthquake, a sudden flood, a horrific hurricane, tornado, super storm, or other catastrophic event?”
In an interactive presentation and demonstration with plenty of time for questions, Corson will discuss shelter, fire, safe drinking water, and the myths and facts of emergency survival. He will bring a “Bug Out Bag” to show what the critical items every person and every household should have on hand in the event of an emergency. He will also discuss what a person needs to carry in their car whenever they leave home (always).
Corson served as a drill sergeant in the US military, instructing new soldiers in basic combat training. After earning a master’s degree in judicial administration from Sangamon State University in Illinois, he spent 25 years with the Oregon State Police. As an OSP detective, Corson was responsible for successfully investigating several high-profile homicides. He served on the Oregon State Police SWAT Team as the team sniper for eight years. He currently lives with his wife in Tualatin.
All of these special events are free and presented largely in part because of the Friends of the Lake Oswego Library. If you want to support them, then please visit their used book store on the corner of Boones Ferry and Mercantile in Lake Grove or visit them online at www.friendslol.org.
