WCC General Meeting November 11, 2015
Board member, Kathy Feely shared her experience with CERT (Community Emergency Response Training). CERT is a large scale emergency training for community members. There is no cost to attend. Trainings are 3-4 hours long and meet 2 nights a week for a month. There will be another training this winter. Kathy encouraged all residents of the community to attend in the event there is a large scale emergency in our area. Safety first!

Board Chair, Sam Hahn shared a lot of information about the proposed “Quiet Zone” project. Sam was invited to be on an advisory panel that consists of 12 Eugene area residents and business owners. 3-4 of which are staffed by the City of Eugene. Sam was initially the only Whiteaker community member invited to be a part of the panel. The panel has since invited Jeff Althouse, Owner/Founder of Oakshire Brewing located at 207 Madison Street in the Whiteaker. The advisory panel will have approximately 6 meetings in an effort to draft a proposal for the Quiet Zone project. The WCC had originally been approached by the City of Eugene about this project in 2006. At the time the WCC was given no real consideration in the Quiet Zone issue. Some key points of the Quiet Zone project:
