Clackamas County installs, opens new automated gate at Oak Grove Blvd. on Willamette River

Clackamas County has installed a new motorized gate at the boat ramp into the Willamette River that is now operational at the west end of Oak Grove Boulevard. The gate’s timer will be set to open one hour before sunrise and close one hour after sunset.

The Clackamas County Department of Transportation and Development provided funding for the new gate, which cost approximately $10,500. North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District installed the gate and will monitor its timing and functionality while also maintaining the natural area in the road right-of-way between the gate and river.

This is great news for our citizens,” said Clackamas County Commissioner Paul Savas. “I’m pleased that, with the addition of this valuable piece of equipment, we’re able to keep the boat launch open and maintain the area for people to enjoy.”

Installation of the new gate is part of an agreement reached between the County and community members to keep the boat ramp open to the public for legitimate use and not become a safety hazard or a dumping location. Community members are responsible for the boat ramp, which was built years ago by Oak Grove residents without permission from the County before it became a place where people often dumped old cars and other junk into the river.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office will monitor the boat ramp area, cite parking violations, and conduct dive training once a year to determine if any vehicles have been dumped into the river.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is now partnering with Las Vegas-based AlertID -- a private company that provides up-to-date information about crime, predatory sex offenders and other public-safety issues affecting local neighborhoods.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is the first law-enforcement agency in Oregon to make AlertID available to the community it serves.

Residents and Sheriff's Office members can sign up for this free service online at www.alertid.com/clackamas.

ABOUT ALERTID

This service provides another channel for residents to connect with the Sheriff's Office, as well as state and federal authorities.

AlertID takes data from the Sheriff's Office internal dispatch and reporting system and makes it available through a web-based interface, accessible on computers, tablets and smartphones.

After registering with AlertID, users can see a map of their community with markers that indicate the location and type of crimes that have recently been reported.

In addition to providing Clackamas County residents with current information about criminal activity, registered sex offenders, terrorism, natural disasters, severe weather and other threats to public safety, AlertID includes a secure social network that allows its users to share ideas and information with neighbors to address these shared concerns.

AlertID also includes a feature, called "My Family Wallet," that allows users to store photographs and vital statistics about their children or other loved ones that can be immediately transmitted to authorities in the event they become lost or separated.


WAYS TO GET THE PUBLIC INVOLVED

The AlertID network grows stronger and more effective as more members join the service. Sheriff's Office employees interacting with the public are encouraged to tell citizens concerned about crime trends in their area to sign up for the service at alertid.com/clackamas. Apartment managers curious about crimes occurring in their complexes may also find AlertID useful.

Again, you can learn more and sign up at alertid.com/clackamas.
