Watch Out for Scam!

Neighbors,

We want to warn you there is a scam currently in our area. There is someone or multiple people who have been able to ‘spoof’ PGE’s number and are leaving messages telling people to pay their bill or their lights will be turned off. When you call back it is a number that is very similar to PGE’s and it will ask you to press 1 if you are a senior or 2 if you are not. Be advised this is not PGE. We have reported this scam to them and they are aware of it.

Autism – Wellness Wednesday!

As many families know, getting their children the supports that are needed in schools and elsewhere can be difficult. Next week on Monday February 5th, 2018 at 2-4pm the Autism Society of Oregon will be here to provide education on the Autism spectrum. They are also one of Oregon’s largest advocacy organizations, making this a great opportunity for families to provide feedback on their experiences and needs. We hope to see you there!

Additionally, we have several events next week, feel free to check out our events page or calendar on our website: rosewoodinitiative.org   #wellnesswednesday

Voice Out Your Transportation Issues!

Happy Transportation Tuesday! Rosewood is working with a number of community partners to ensure that your voices are heard on the many transportation issues facing our community. One of those issues is a potential bond measure that may be presented to regional voters in 2020 to fund important transportation projects. Please let us know what you want to see in a funding package and we will raise your voice. We will also update you as to other ways you can have a say in this process. We are dedicated to making sure that the region east of I 205 receives a fair share of the resources from such a bond measure.

Transportation Tuesday!

Good Morning! This is Transportation Tuesday!

Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is moving forward with its new authority to reduce speed limits from 25 mph to 20 mph on residential streets. Sadly, PBOT must still jump through a bunch of hoops with the state to reduce the speed limits on collectors and arterials. Rosewood will work with PBOT to make all roads safe for all users At the same time, please remember that almost every accident is preventable, as the article says. You can help by not speeding, drinking/diving, or being distracted. Also, please respect the fact that there are others using the roads and if you are a few minutes later, it will still be ok. http://portlandtribune.com/…/383815-272528-speed-limits-exp…
