Land Use and Transportation Committee Meeting

Land Use and Transportation Committee Meeting

Where: Portland Metro Arts, 9003 SE Stark St.

At our October meeting, we’re talking historic resources!

Brandon Spencer-Hartle, Historic Resources Program Manager at the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, will share exciting news about possible City funding for a historic resources survey of the Montavilla main street area.

In March, MNA asked City Council to prioritize Montavilla for the long-awaited update to the citywide Historic Resources Inventory. In response, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability has identified resources to document potential historic resources in Montavilla in early 2019.

Brandon will talk about the survey and inventory process, what it means for Montavilla, and how the neighborhood can engage in the project. Brandon will also talk about upcoming amendments to the historic resources chapters of the zoning code.
