City council adopts
disaster mitigation plan
The above map shows natural disaster possibilities in the city of Cottage Grove and be found on the city's website
by searching "Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan" and scrolling to the "supporting documents" link.
Mayor Jeff Gowing declared the week of April 9 to April 15 "Public Safety Telecommunicators Week." A represen-
tative of the Cottage Grove Police
Department as well as CG Police
Chief Scott Shepherd were present
Meet the DJ/Program Host
to accept the proclamation.
I was born in Eugene and grew up in
Cottage Grove, graduating from CGHS
in 1968 -- go Lions! I studied radio at
Lane Community College in the 1970s,
graduating with a degree in both radio
broadcasting and television design. I
subsequently moved my studies to the
University of Oregon, graduating with a
B.S. in Communications. I worked my way
through school, fi rst in the plywood plant
at the Cottage Grove Weyerhaeuser mill,
and later while working in radio. I took
classes as I could aff ord them. It was a slow
process. I graduated from the UO at the ripe old age of 39. While working at the mill,
I had the good fortune to meet Don Work who had a popular Saturday Oldies request
show on KNND. He asked me to help him pull records for his show. Th at experience
hooked me on radio and I changed my LCC major from Business to Radio Broadcasting
and began interning at KNND in late-1971. In six months, I joined the KNND team as a
full-time employee working 36 hours a week on the air and other assignments (that’s code
for cleaning the bathroom and hauling out trash!). I eventually worked in all capacities:
air talent, production, music director, program director. By 1973, I was also working
at KEED in Eugene on the weekends. I don’t recall having a day off from radio for a
couple of years. I left KNND in 1976 and worked my way into a full-time position at Keed
where I had a terrifi c run on the air and as music director. While I was still at KNND, I
assisted Keed in developing a new record library when they changed their music format
from Top-40 to County. In return, KNND received all their old Top-40 record library!
Old-timers will remember”K-double-E-D”! What a great radio station. Much of what I
learned at Keed helped me as the KNND music director, program director, and mid-day
air talent. And I was ecstatic to be able to add all the Keed oldies from the 1950s and ‘60s
to our increasingly popular music rotation! It is that music that I play exclusively today:
the music of the ‘50s and ‘60s, “the greatest musical era”, right here on KNND on Mondays
from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. I hope you’ll join me.

The Cottage Grove City Council approved an update to the city's natural
hazards mitigation plan during its Monday, April 10 meeting.
"It is a basic requirement to be eligible for FEMA funds," new community
development and planning departmen head Faye Stewart informed the com-
In the event of a natural disaster, Cottage Grove must have a
mitigation plan in place to be considered eligible for recovery funds
from the federal government. And, according to the mitigation
plan, Cottage Grove is at risk for several potential natural disasters.
In the order of most severity, Stewart noted that the city is most
at risk from fl ooding in the ravine, followed by severe weather, an
earthquake, fl oods from a dam failure and fi nally, wildfi res.
While resident Dylan Man noted that the mitigation plan did
not include citizen groups such as the amateur radio club, Cottage
Grove City Manager Richard Meyers explained the group was al-
ready involved in emergecy plans for the city.
"This is mitigation," he said. "Emergency response is different.
There are a lot of different plans and they all go into action at dif-
The city's mitigation plan is meant to map out ways to reduce the
cost of life and property in the event of a natural disaster before the
However, the city does have an emergency response plan in place
BUILDING MATERIALS that is aimed at rallying resouces in the event of a natural disas-
ter and assessing the damages. Meyers noted that the radio groups
were included in the city's emergency response plan.
In 2005, the city adopted its fi rst resolution regarding mitiga-
tion and in 2012, adopted a revised version. Statute notes that plans
should be adopted every fi ve years.
