Sept. 25, 2007

  • Advocates of taming traffic through Terrebonne on Highway 97 received good news this week when the Oregon Department of Transportation agreed to lower speeds entering, and in the middle of, town. The change will be slight -- from 50 mph to 45 on the outskirts, from 40 mph to 35 inside -- but future road improvements such as sidewalks are hoped to increase pedestrian safety.
  • A dedication will be held for Stack Park Saturday, Sept. 29, at 10 a.m. Privately held and maintained for years by Dr. Roger Stack, the park has been donated to the city by the family. The park is located at the corners of Northwest Canyon Road and Kingwood.
  • Redmond's Art/Walk/Explore third Friday event will take a breather for the winter after Nov. 15. Organizers plan on bringing the downtown event back when weather improves, hoping to add improvements to the art walk as well.
