Old Business:

There was a meeting to discuss the Troutdale Energy Center. The Troutdale Airport Manager is opposed to the site as it is a Troutdale airspace violation. The President of the pilots association is also in opposition. He stated that his concern was related to thermal plumes and the effect on low level air traffic. He said that there will be accidents if they build the energy center. Michael Long from Friends of the Columbia River Gorge discussed the adverse effects on air, water, fish and wildlife. He also feels that there would be an impact on tourism. PGE and the Public Utilities Commission have also rejected the project.

New Business:

The committee agreed to purchase and install a no dumping sign at the far west end of Interlachen Lane.
