Oregonian Article on Cornelius Renovations...

Key Points, summary: "Cornelius had only ditches where most cities have sidewalks. That's not true anymore. Next week, city leaders will unveil a design plan for improving West Baseline Street, the eastbound portion of Tualatin Valley Highway. This will hopefully lead Metro councilors to name downtown Cornelius a "town center" -- a designation that brings greater clout for transportation projects. Residents say the change is transformative, proof that Cornelius can be better. Cornelius is starting to look like a new town. Richard Meyer, the city's development and operations manager, says "Before, a lot of people really didn't expect much from Cornelius. This is nothing short of transformational."

Cornelius Week Ends Today :(

Simon and Jolynn visit Cornelius on the last day of Cornelius Week. Thanks for coming by guys.

Door to Door Security System Salesmen - BEWARE!

Be on the lookout for Salesmen with "Platinum Protection". College aged guys (2) teaming up to instill fear and sell you on Home Protection. Free Equipment. Wait...they're not "Salesmen"...they're Marketing or Advertising. "All you guys would ever pay for is the connection to dispatch".

They're trying to sell you on a 3-5 year contact for $40-50/month. RESIDENTS BEWARE!

Alarm company’s sales practices raise concerns for customers, officials

Cornelius Week - KUPL 98.7FM - Spotlight

Lisa, who works the front-desk at the station of KUPL has the sweetest voice...she was here in Cornelius this week interviewing people at the local Starbucks. KUPL will be in town again today as a matter of fact, I'll see if I can't catch them.

I was listening this morning and heard about a Graffiti Abatement program in Portland here: It'd be nice if Cornelius had a similar program that would actively seek out graffiti and clean it up.
