The Board of the Southwest Hills Neighborhood Association is encouraging all Eugene resident to meet your surrounding neighbors and make plans for mutual support in the event of a natural disaster such as the Cascadia Subduction Earthquake or a major forest fire affecting Eugene.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training program has much useful information, if members of your block or area wish to take that training. Each family needs to make a plan, since normal communications, such as cell phone may not be working, emergency responders may be overwhelmed, and services we depend on like electricity, being able to drive from place to place, grocery stores being open, and so on may not be functioning or accessible.
The Cascadia Earthquake has the potential to be the worst natural disaster in US history. Many things we rely on under “normal” conditions may not be available. It is better to think about taking care of ourselves under emergency conditions, before rather than when normal conditions are overturned.
Workshop Info: June 18th, 2019 at the Salem Convention Center in Salem, OR from 8:30am – 4:30pm. See flier for Registration Info.
The monthly meeting of the Neighborhood Leadership Council committee on Housing and Homelessness will continue looking at sanitation concerns surrounding homelessness. A member of the Whitaker board will share their experiences with placing several Porta-potties around the neighborhood in an attempt to improve sanitation. We will draw on similar experiences in other cities.
Meeting on Thursday June 27th, 12:00 – 1:00pm at the McNail-Riley House – 601 W 13th Ave in Eugene.
On Saturday June 15th from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
SHiNA is sponsoring a work party to build a bike rack in the parking lot at Wayne Morse Family Farm at 595 Crest Drive.
The Work will involve cutting 6 holes through the asphalt, mixing and pouring concrete around the bottom portions of three hoop-type, powder-coated bike racks.
The Party will consist of a social gathering where free ice cream, cookies, and juice will be served. This is an opportunity for you to come by bicycle or by other means, bring children, and dogs on leashes (except in the dog park where they can run free). The Southwest Hills Neighborhood Association has received a City of Eugene Neighborhood Matching Grant to purchase the materials for the project. The neighborhood association is supplying the labor for the work and the social gathering. This is a Saturday outing for individuals, families, and dogs in the beautiful park setting of the former family home of U.S. Senator Wayne Morse. We hope to see you there. Come to work or socialize!
Water Wise Homes talk at the Eugene Public Library on June 20th 6:00 – 7:30pm.
