Calling all Sunnyside homeowners, renters, business owners – come get involved in the design of new buildings along Hawthorne and Belmont by participating in the Monday May 11th meeting from 7:30-9:30pm in the Southeast Uplift Building (3534 SE Main St).
Advocacy at the neighborhood level and directly at City meetings can be focused on neighborhood notification for proposed development and design standards that push for building façade surfaces with depth and other architectural features to avoid “box-like” buildings occupying almost an entire site.
Monday’s meeting agenda includes:
I) Design of 42nd & Belmont Project
II) Design of Belmont & Cesar Chavez Intersection
III) Division Design Initiative
Hope to see you there!
SNA Meeting and Board Elections
May 14th 7-9PM
SE Uplift – 3534 SE Main St
Our May meeting will feature a presentation by the Community Alliance of Tenants who will answer questions about their organization and present the comic book, Know Your Rights: Don’t Get Evicted which they recently published with Know Your City. SNA has purchased 5 copies which will be given away by raffle to renters in attendance.
Please help us spread the word to people who rent in Sunnyside. Renters make up 63% of our neighborhood and are historically underrepresented in Portland’s neighborhood association. Print and distribute our Renter Outreach Flyer in your apartment building or complex.
Also provided is a detailed agenda.
