The biggest issue facing Lake Oswego at the moment is the building of a tram which will make it easier for the middle class and other undesirables to freely move in and out of the city. And that convenience is feared will lead to some one making less than 50K a year to find a place to live there, which will mean raising the already falsely inflated "market value" that the city is so famous for.
The city is also known for its bizarre, unwritten driving laws and its citizens sense of entitlement.
Lake Oswego is the perfect place to observe the absurd. You are guaranteed a hilarious time people watching there. Just go into the Starbucks at the Safeway on A Street and you can experience the worst of the so-called "upper classes" whilst enjoying a mocha.
Lake Oswego is proof that money does not necessarily mean "class."

And do not be alarmed when you see aforementioned botoxed old men trying to pick up young girls at the High School in their Hummers or Austin Martins: Orange, is a perfectly normal skin color in Lake Oswego.

A place where if you spend over $30,000 on a car, you never have to worry about paying for speeding tickets or even getting pulled over since the most common job in town is being a lawyer.
A place where people call the cops if you leave your front door open for more than five minutes, assuming that terrorists are attacking the neighborhood.
A place that can breed such a cynical person as myself.
