Pools Remaining open – NEW DATE!

Pools A, B and C  will now remain open through November 1st.  Enjoy the last of our sunshine for another couple of weeks.  Thank you.


Guest Parking Signs

Please note that in our continued effort to keep our Neighborhood safe and organized, we will be installing Guest Parking signs in all the common area parking spaces.  As part of this effort, we will also be restriping the lines in the Guest Parking areas to make clear where the spaces are.  As homeowners know, we do have parking rules and encourage all neighbors to comply with these rules.  The Guest Parking is for our Guests.  Homeowners have their own designated parking areas.

Please contact Steve Chinn with questions.

Thank you

Pools to Open!!

The Governor has just given the approval to open the pools on Monday.  Please practice social distancing and wearing masks unless in the water.  If you are experiencing any of the Covid-19 symptoms, please stay home to keep everyone safe.  The water fountain will be closed and there can be only one person in the bathroom at any time.

Please contact Steve Chinn with specific questions.  He can be reached at his office:  503-682-0234 or his Cell: 503-312-0927.


Garron Grounds Owner and General Manager Passes Away


Your CHOA Board is sad to inform you that Ken Bartus, owner of Garron Grounds, passed away in his sleep at home on Monday night.  Ken was dedicated to serving our community as he has done for many years.  That dedication was further evidenced by Ken putting into place, through his will and management documents, instructions for the continuation of his business.

CHOA’s property manager, Steve Chinn, and Landscape Chair, Karen Siegel, have met with Garron Staff.  We have been assured that Garron’s general landscape and irrigation maintenance service to our Community will continue and that Garron will have staff available for any emergencies.  We ask that any special requests for landscape and/or irrigation issues be directed to Steve Chinn or Karen Siegel who will work directly with Garron staff.

Thank you


Our current Architectural Chair, Doug Parker, has recently purchased a new home that is not located in the CHOA association (but is still in Charbonneau so we aren’t losing him entirely to our larger community) so will be resigning his position effective October 1, 2020.  We will miss his expertise and leadership on the board.

We are seeking a new Board member, ideally someone with some legal background.  This is not a requirement. This is a great opportunity to have input on what happens in your neighborhood.

If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Barry Hendrix at 503-754-0322

Neighborhood Watch – Volunteers Needed!

Please note that CHOA is considering creating a Neighborhood Watch program.  Several HOAs in Charbonneau already have them.  Since we have volunteers for the Board and the Emergency Preparedness program, we are seeking volunteers to lead a Neighborhood Watch program if there is enough interest in our community.

 If you are interested in leading or volunteering as a member of a Neighborhood Watch Committee, please let us know by the end of August.

 If interested, please contact Barry Hendrix at hbconsulting@gmail.com or 503-754-0322.

New Statewide Rules on Get-togethers and Face Coverings


From OHA (Oregon Health Authority): New statewide rules on get-togethers and face coverings

The governor has announced these two new rules as a result of a frank assessment of COVID-19 in our state:

  • Oregon reported more cases in the past week than we did in the entire month of May.
  • The last time we had fewer than 100 cases in a single day was more than a month ago.

The first rule is a statewide ban on indoor social get-togethers of more than 10 people. This includes gatherings such as dinner parties, birthday parties, potlucks and book clubs taking place indoors. It does not affect restaurants, churches, event venues and other organizations at this time. Businesses and other organizations that have been following the guidance about face coverings, distancing and sanitation have not currently been identified as sources of significant transmission. Effective July 15

The second new rule is that face coverings are mandated in outdoor spaces where distance of 6 feet or more from people outside your household cannot be maintained. This might come up at a crowded trailhead, on sidewalks while awaiting entry to a business or at an outdoor event. Effective July 15

This virus is extremely contagious, and many people don’t show symptoms for days. In that time, you can interact with dozens or, if you’re not careful, hundreds of other people in your social circle and community.
That’s why the three W’s continue to be so important:

  • Wear a face covering.
  • Watch your distance.
  • Wash your hands.

In addition to the new measures announced today, these are other actions we can all take to slow the spread of COVID-19.

  • If you can move activities outside, do so. The disease spreads less easily outdoors, and you can enjoy more of the Oregon summer.
  • If you run a business and can serve customers outside – do it.
  • Avoid groups of more than 10. And if you’re unexpectedly in a group of 10 or more, think hard about whether that’s a good choice, stay outside, keep 6 feet apart, and cover your face.

New Bark Dust Coming Your Way!


Karen Siegel – CHOA Landscape Chair

If you  have questions, please contact me or Steve Chinn.

Contact Tracing and Safe Walking Tips


What is contact tracing and why does it matter?
Contact tracing means calling people who may have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 to provide guidance and support. It’s a key tool for preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In Oregon, local public health authorities use contact tracing to prevent the spread of many types of diseases, like measles.
OHA has developed a webpage with fact sheets and other downloadable resources about contact tracing that will help you know what to expect if you or someone in your household gets a call, click on this link to access the website:
What happens on a contact tracing call?
With COVID-19 cases increasing in Oregon over the past several weeks, answering the call from a contact tracer is an important way we can work together to help stop the spread of the virus. Contact tracers reach out to anyone who may have been exposed to COVID-19 to provide information and support. If you don’t answer calls from phone numbers you don’t recognize, don’t worry, contact tracers will leave a message asking you to call them back.
If you have been exposed to the virus, you will be asked to quarantine for 14 days after you were near someone with COVID-19, even if you don’t feel sick. This is because you can spread the virus, even if you don’t have symptoms.
When walking, wear BRIGHT clothes, be BRIGHT mentally!

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reminds us “because walking is such a routine part of everyday life, many people do not consider the safety aspects of walking. For instance, most injuries to walkers happen when a vehicle hits them because the driver could not see the walker or the walker and driver were not paying close enough attention.”
See and Be Seen!! It is a good idea when walking, especially at dawn, dusk, and other low-light conditions, (such as our shaded Charbonneau streets) to wear light colors or bright clothing so that you can be easily seen. Fluorescent colors such as blaze orange, hot pink, and day-glow green are ideal in daytime. When walking at night, use a flashlight to make yourself more visible to drivers and to help light your path. It’s also a good idea to wear reflective or retroreflective materials, which give off light when headlights shine on them and can be seen by drivers three times farther than white.
The NHTSA has an excellent website with information geared to senior walkers, click on the link for more important safety tips:
