My name is Karla McGrath and I joined the CERT Program because I wanted to contribute to the community beyond what I do as a staff person at City Hall. What I learned from the training will allow me to do that, but it also taught me how to be prepared for an emergency myself. The program emphasizes putting your family first before responding to a disaster in your City. I also appreciated learning how the program manages leadership communication – how they make sure that instructions are given clearly and understood well up and down a chain of command. It was fascinating and encouraging.
The Adair Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) includes Adair residents: Becky Currier, Delores Jean Pollard, Alan Rowe, Kevin Armstrong, Karen Ross; and Adair staff, Karla McGrath. We have put together a video linked below that highlights what we want our community to know about CERT. The Adair CERT team of volunteers will continue training monthly so that we will be ready to serve our community when the City requests it.
We hope that you will consider your own emergency response readiness and perhaps consider joining the next training course set to begin in September 2020. The course is taught by lead teacher, Jerry Jackson, who has a wealth of knowledge and experiences that make him an outstanding teacher and resource for participants. His co-teachers include Phil Harkins, retired firefighter; Chuck Harris, retired ARFD Fire Chief; and Peggy Pearson, CERT Instructor. For More information contact Jerry Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-745-5507.

Adair Village Land Use Development Code AMENDMENTS
The City of Adair Village adopted its Transportation Systems Plan (TSP) in 2019. OAR 660-012-0045 requires each local government to amend its land use regulations to implement the TSP and to adopt land use regulations consistent with state and federal requirements “to protect transportation facilities, corridors and sites for their identified functions.” These requirements are achieved through a variety of measures, including access control standards, robust pedestrian and bicycle circulation and connectivity provisions, standards to protect future road operations of roads, and expanded notice requirements and coordinated review procedures for land use applications.
Measures in OAR 660-012-0060 address plan and land use regulation amendments to ensure that proposed land uses are consistent with the identified function and capacity of existing and planned transportation facilities. It includes criteria for identifying significant effects of plan or land use regulation amendments on transportation facilities, actions to be taken when a significant effect would occur, identification of planned facilities, and coordination with transportation facility providers.
The modifications include text that is being added or deleted within the current Development Code. Because of the mixture of text being added, some of the text colors remained different. However, all new text will be underlined and all text being deleted will have a strike-through. The language will need to be incorporated into the Development Code via an amending ordinance. Changes have already been made to the Comprehensive Plan that support and implement the proposed Development Code recommendations.
