Join one of these fine organizations

Do you remember the property developer that came to Lyle about a year ago, wanting to build a row of mini-homes or a large trailer park at the far west end of Lyle? The residents came together and voiced their concerns, and it must have died in the planning because I didn’t hear any more about it—until now. I’ve received word of a “Notice of Public Hearing” announcing that the Klickitat County board of Adjustment will hold public hearings on Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. in the Klickitat County Courthouse, Commissioners Meeting Room, 205 S. Columbus, Goldendale. It seems there is a proposal for the development of 30 condominium units consisting of five individual structures, three stories in height with two units on each floor, yada yada yada. The site area is approx 2.1 acres, and the proposed project is located within a portion of Section 3, T2N, R12, Lyle. I’m not familiar with plots, parcels, or sections, but I’ll lay you odds this is the same piece of property as before. Yep, I just confirmed. So if you have comments or concerns, yeas or nays, take it to the board!

Okay, I’ve reminded you about the County Fair the last couple weeks, so I won’t bother you with it again. I won’t mention that it is coming this week, August 22-25, or what fun you would have, or even that it holds many diverse attractions, but I won’t. I could, but I won’t.

I will mention that there are various local organizations right here in Lyle that would be happy to have you join them. So many of their members are in their autumn (some even in their winter) years of life and would love to pass the torch to a younger more active generation. To mention a few: the Lion’s Club, the Twin Bridges Museum, Community Council, Lyle School, Fire Department, OLESS, and the Grange. Most of them meet only once a month for a couple hours. Would it devastate your life to pull away from the TV, computer, iPad, or whatever for that small amount of time, to help enhance your community? Each of these organizations is well known for giving back to society in so many ways. Volunteering is a great start at meeting new friends, visiting with old ones, and sharing the blessings God has granted you, by paying it forward.
