Thanks to Victoria Purvine, President of NEMCCA for the below notes.


May Safety Meeting May 6, 2020
Information was submitted, no meeting was held

Friends of the Sandy River Delta: At this time Friends of the Sandy River Delta and Oregon Equestrian Trails are not allowed to work in the Sandy River Delta. Even before the lock down the SRD was experiencing a flood of visitors and frantic efforts to get a parking spot. The closure of Jordan Road parking intensified the struggle. Hopefully the Forest Service working with the volunteers will figure out some ways of mitigating that tense situation.
We are hoping to get in and do some trail maintenance when we get the word from the CRGNSA. I am on three volunteer committees that are meeting by teleconferencing. In May we will try that for my OET chapter and the OET State Board meeting as well.
Victoria and I are teaming with other volunteers and agencies to support invasive weed efforts against Garlic Mustard. The County is spraying some of the roads with heavy infestations. We need to get all of the plants before they go to seed. There are some dedicated volunteers who clean the roads they live on. Some roads, with not many people and A LOT of GM, such as Kniereim, need to be sprayed
According to wikipedia GM is one of the oldest spices used in Europe and even today is used for sauces and in salads. Check it out, there's a lot more information available.

Oregon Parks and Recreation Department: No hard dates yet to reopen.

We are prioritizing day use reopening first, similar to Washington State Parks. Reopening will be on a park-by-park basis, and coordinated with partners. Ideally, we will reopen several parks and trails to disperse folks, as well as keep local communities safe. We will keep everyone posted as best we can, however, all of us may receive late notice.

We would like to sincerely thank all of you for great work during this challenging time. ODOT closing the HCRH for staff, public and community safety. MCSO and Corbett Fire for always being there. Multnomah County Roads for closing roads (Alex Barr and Palmer Mill) to keep staff, the public and community safe. USFS for coordinating and working in concert with all of us and that will lead to better reopening strategies. County Commissioner Lori Stegmann and staff Nathan Clark for their great work and support throughout this time.

ODOT:
Things are pretty quiet on our end with the closure of the Historic Highway and State Trail.
Below are things we’re working on:
- Our sign folks are working on a comprehensive plan to replace signage for the entire drivable Historic Highway corridor (Corbett to Ainsworth) for the speed limit reduction and length limits – we wanted a coordinated plan to replace the signage because there are a few changes coming all at once. Once the signage is up, the reduced length limits and speed limits will be in effect.
- We’ll be looking to hold a virtual Historic Highway Advisory Committee meeting at the end of May – there will be a newsletter emailed two weeks in advance, and the agenda will be on the website one week in advance. Our website will have updated information once we have a date and time nailed down: www.historichighway.org. Meetings are open to the public, and we’re working to set up an online meeting platform that allows for public comment. Folks will be able to email or call me to submit public comment as well if they have anything they’d like me to share with the committee at the meeting. We’ll also take comments during the meeting.
- As Clay mentioned, we are working with our partners at Multnomah County, U.S. Forest Service and OPRD (including MCSO and OSP) to ensure that we’re coordinated when things start to open up. We’re having conversations about what the congestion and safety mitigation strategies might be once restrictions start to ease, though we’re relying on guidance from the Governor’s office on the timing. Our staff are talking at least every week to ensure we’re all coordinating appropriately.

Multnomah County Roads and Transportation: Currently at Transportation DCS; Roads we are still observing the mandates of social distancing as prescribed by the Governor and the chair. Part of that observation requires that we operate at a limited capacity to slow the spread and discourage close contact. We are driving one person to a vehicle and reporting to work in separate locations. We are essential personnel. So, we are primarily focused on Street Painting, vegetation management for sight visibility issues, Signs, Drainage, Sweeping, and Tractor work. These are essential services, some are mandated at the federal level and they are also tasks we can conduct with relatively small crews.
Please continue to forward your requests and questions.

MCSO: I’m not speaking for all of MCSO, but from my lone-deputy perspective, our call load has definitely gone down but Corbett has more than its share of “creepy crawlers” driving around the area. This week was actually very slow, but we had a lot of this kind of activity the two weeks prior. I posted all of the suspicious vehicles that citizens or deputies encountered on the Citizen Patrol website: www.mcsocp.com. There are currently seven on that list.

Now that the Old Hwy is blocked at the base of Larch Mt., citizen complaints have greatly increased re: the increased traffic going up Larch Mt.. Some signs and tape were placed at Brower and Palmer Mill to prevent tourists from going downhill to the Old Hwy.. However, we’ve had reports of some people still moving the signs and driving around anyhow. We’ve also had citizen complaints about people that violate “social distancing” outside the Women’s Forum, Lewis and Clark and other areas. We’ve had deputies fill weekend overtime shifts to help ensure enforcement with this issue in the Gorge.

We’ve had an uptick with speeding motorcycle complaints on nice days. One crashed two days ago at Smith and the Old Hwy.. Another crashed today at 257/Stark. Another was seen today on Ogden going about 100 mph. as reported by a citizen. Those are just the ones I know about. I’m sure there are others.

Although our Citizen Patrol volunteers have been pulled off line with the Pandemic, we’ve been doing weekly radio check-in exercises and sharing information in this manner. So it’s a nice way for the volunteers to stay in the loop.
Visitors to the Gorge can drive, bike, and hike on the Historic Columbia River Highway between Troutdale and The Dalles.

Thanks to Victoria Purvine, President of NEMCCA for the below notes.


The April Safety Meeting was done by asking the agencies to write in a report for us to present. I would like to say Thank You to the agencies that responded to our request.

MultCo Roads: Road Maintenance is focusing on essential work, that is--signs associated with 'Ball Banking' results, drainage. to ward off emergencies, and vac sweeping. This is due to the social distancing priority and the staggered reporting we are currently acknowledging. Pavement repairs, are on hold until further notice.

As for the Planning and Development group - we are continuing to review land use applications if/when they come in and continuing to issue right of way permits over the phone and email. Several planning activities are continuing to move forward, albeit more slowly.

ODOT.
- Prior to the State Parks and US Forest Service closure order, ODOT placed no parking barricades up and down the Historic Highway as people were parking on both sides of the road and creating safety hazards for through traffic while trying to hike at Angel’s Rest. This is in the section just west of the current closure (at Bridal Veil). I’ve attached ODOT’s press release for folks who haven’t already heard.
- Additionally, to support our partners at the US Forest Service, we’ve closed the I-84 exit at Multnomah Falls (Exit 31).
- Maintenance crews have also added no parking signage and no parking sandwich boards along the I-84 ramp on the north side of the highway just west of the entrance to Sandy River Delta due to the parking overflow, and to keep people from parking there and walking into the closed park.
- This week we removed hazard trees alongside the Historic Highway near Horsetail Falls
- Kent and his crew is taking this opportunity to do some brushing along the Historic Highway while it is closed

No update on the length limit restrictions at this time, still waiting to hear when our sign crews will be out switching up the signs. I have not had anyone contact me regarding needing a permit for an over length vehicle. If you could remind folks, that would be great.
The Historic Highway Advisory Committee meeting on 3/26 has been cancelled, we’ll reevaluate shortly and see if we can do a virtual meeting or not.
The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) open house scheduled for 4/6 in Cascade Locks has been cancelled, but there is an online open house, available until April 10th. The STIP is how we (ODOT) distribute/program our federal transportation funds, and the cycle is every 4 years. The projects on this list would occur in 2021-2024.

Depending on the Pandemic situation, the monthly Corbett Crime Log may be delayed or temporarily suspended depending on sickness or call load. We're all in this together- Deputy Joe "Rocky" G.

See the crime reports below attached in blue and next to the small green paperclip icon.

* If you have problems opening the Crime Log, Adobe Reader may not be installed on your computer.  To download Adobe Reader, go to http://get.adobe.com/reader/ and click "download".


The Corbett Crime Log has been in existence since 2008 when the Corbett Community Resource Officer position was created. The Crime Log only listed incidents in which a police report was written. The vast majority of "lesser" incidents, however, have never been listed. Beginning with this Crime Log, we'll now begin listing all of the incidents, excluding traffic stops (there were 79 traffic stops conducted in our area in January).   This will give a more accurate portrayal of all law enforcement related activity in the Corbett community.

An "incident" may list anything from a severe crime to a deputy getting "flagged down" regarding a loose horse on the roadway. Due to space constraints, some information such as the assigned deputy on the call and the column that indicated if a report was written are not included.
A serious assault incident occurred on Chamberlain Rd by an adult son to his elderly parents. The parents both sustained injuries requiring hospitalization. Deputies had arrived to arrest the resistive suspect just as he was trying to leave.

NEW added Zumba classes - Free of Charge & Full of Fun!

Many people have told me they would like 1/2 hour Zumba classes.  Others haven't been able to come to the ones I do at 5 pm because it's too late.

So I'm adding 1/2 hour classes every morning at 7:30 am - Monday through Friday (the Thursday morning one will be a pre-recorded one).
I'm also adding a 1/2 hour class at 4:00 pm Monday through Friday (Thursday pre-recorded) in addition to the 5 pm classes
And a 9:30 am class on Saturday mornings in addition to the 1 pm class.

All times are Pacific Standard Time.

I hope you give it a try. I got cool disco lights and the music is great.
If you don't want to dance, you can do something else. My husband rides the stationary bike while I dance. Or you can sit there and laugh if you want! No one can see or hear you if you turn your camera off and mute yourself, so no need to feel self-conscious.

If you join, please go at your own pace. Don't do any move that hurts. When I got my license to teach Zumba, I had to take a CPR class, but it would be pretty hard for me to save anyone over Zoom! 😃  Take breaks, drink water, and just have fun.

Please PM me your email address if you want to be on my mailing list for announcements and to be notified when a class gets cancelled.
Please share with anyone you know who would be interested! I love it when people join the class--it makes me more energetic and motivated.

If you haven't noticed it - you likely haven't been looking. It is all across the area right now. Garlic Mustard is a problem and we need your diligence.

".... we are encouraging anyone with a garlic mustard infestation on their property to take advantage of the extra time at home to pull and bag the plants located on your own property. You can dispose of bagged garlic mustard at the dumpster provided by EMSWCD, located at the old ball field at the top of Corbett Hill Road. Please be sure to sanitize your hands before and after touching the door to the dumpster.

We’ve made a lot of progress in the last ten years, and this year more than ever we need your help so that we don’t lose ground in our fight against garlic mustard. "

If you aren’t sure that what you’ve got is garlic mustard, go ahead and take a picture to send to our invasive weeds staff. Our garlic mustard experts are standing by to support you – email Chris at chris@emswcd.org.

https://emswcd.org/garlic-mustard-update-2020/


"Garlic mustard is a very invasive weed.  The roots exude a chemical that is inhibit other plants from growing, and it can grow in full sun or full shade, making it a threat to a wide variety of our native plants and habitats. Each plant can produce up to 5000 seeds which remain viable in the soil for five years or more. All of these traits allow garlic mustard, once established in an area, to rapidly reproduce and spread, excluding native and landscaping plants while spreading quickly across the landscape.

forest floor covered with invasive garlic mustard
Garlic mustard can completely smother native plants on the forest floor.

Unfortunately, Multnomah County has the worst infestation of garlic mustard in the state. With garlic mustard already well established in many areas, early detection and eradication of satellite populations has been identified as our primary goal. Imagine your favorite wildflower hike in the Columbia River Gorge or your back yard destroyed by this plant and you can understand the urgent need for control.
