Martinazzi Woods CIO Accomplishments
Tualatin Pedestrian Safety
Residents needed help crossing busy streets in the Martinazzi Woods CIO. Progress has been made with two flashing crosswalk signals on SW Boones Ferry Road, at SW Siletz and near SW Arapaho. A traffic light is currently being installed at the intersection of SW Martinazzi and SW Sagert.
National Night Out
The Martinazzi Woods CIO has contributed funding to neighborhood gatherings to mark National Night Out. This event is celebrated on the first Tuesday in August and promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood gathering. Our Police Chief Bill Steele and his officers make rounds to greet folks at each of the events. The CIO helps provide the paper products for these neighborhood gatherings.
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
Martinazzi Woods CIO supports the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). These volunteers have the training and focus to help neighbors in emergencies, such as power outages, floods and earthquakes. Each volunteer can help set up a command center, help with light search and rescue, provide basic first aid and communicate with City and County emergency response centers through HAM radios. Out of 163 CERTs, Martinazzi Woods has 37 members.
Keeping Our Neighborhood Clean
In response to complaints about dog waste on the sidewalks and in residential yards, the CIO purchased a garbage can and plastic bag dispenser unit to provide for waste disposal. It is maintained by the City and is located on SW Martinazzi between SW Avery and SW Iroquois Drive.
Emergency Supply Kits
Martinazzi Woods CIO has contributed grant funds to a community emergency supply kit. There is currently one supply hub located in Martinazzi Woods. It is available to CERTs in the event of an emergency. In an emergency, a Command Center will be set up at Byrom Elementary School – if school is not in session. Alternative location is a cul de sac at SW Pamlico Court.
