Hi Everyone – This is Cora.
 
This is 1 of 2 of Land Use cases that are active right now.
 
TriMet is now actively working on their Powell Garage improvements and have requested a Type II land-use adjustment for the required buffer area on the south end of the Powell Garage property. They would like to decrease a portion of the buffer from 25 feet in depth to 17 feet in depth to accommodate the overhang /rooflines of their reconstructed fueling and washing stations. To mitigate, they are proposing to add more intensive landscape screening that includes a berm that is between four and six feet in height.
 
Here’s a link to the land-use case document:
 
And here is a link to a draft response letter the Land Use committee is considering submitting:

LU 18-150004 AD – LNA Land Use Committee

 

If you would like to provide feedback on this land-use case, please contact Cora by emailing lentsneighborhood at gmail.com.

And let them know that we have childcare and interpretation available upon request, as part of our effort to make our meetings more inclusive and eliminate barriers to engagement.

Survey for Our Upcoming Public Safety Forum

All Lents Residents! Please take this survey to tell the LNA your concerns about public safety in our neighborhood.

Share the survey with your Lents-based friends & contacts. Mark the date on your calendars. Stay tuned for details here on our Web Site or the Lents Neighborhood Association Facebook Page.

Special Board Meeting January 13, 2018

The LNA Board is holding a Special Board Meeting to address recent LNA members’ grievances. Our goal is to discuss the grievances with those filed them, decide on whether there was a violation of our bylaws, decide on the best course of action (if applicable), and, finally, take a formal vote on our decisions.

This meeting is open to the public and the media. However, the Board may go into Executive Session before taking a formal vote.

After the meeting, the LNA Board will share a written report of our findings and final decisions with the LNA general membership.

The meeting will be held in the Community Room at NAYA Generations, 8510 SE Steele St, Portland, OR 97266.
