Muz Afsal from SEUL, Southeast Uplift, leads off our meeting to talk about some workshops that might helpful to members of the community.  First up is a workshop on community conversations coming up later this month,  It is entitled “Exploring Power and Privilege with Courage, Creativity, and Compassion", with Ridhi D’Cruz on Monday, March 25th at 6 PM at Portland Metro Arts Center 9003 SE Stark St Portland, OR 97216. This program is hosted by SE Uplift in partnership with Montavilla Neighborhood Association and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
 

Jonathan Lewis along with Teri Poppino of Office of Community & Civic Life, will be speaking on the topic of Crime Prevention. Jonathan works with the City of Portland, Homelessness/Urban Camping Impact Reduction Program. While Jonathan has the responsibility to enforce no-camping ordinances, perhaps he can offer us an insider’s perspective on working with the homeless. The focus for the community meeting is on how best we can interact with situations that you might find yourself in; what rights do they have, what rights do we have? What do we do when problems or conflicts arise, or we feel unsafe?

The Montavilla Food Cooperative started in 2010 as a simple idea to bring the kind of food we wanted to buy year-round to the Montavilla neighborhood. Since that time, we have been building community support through memberships and engagement, and we are excited at the prospect of opening a cooperatively owned grocery store in Montavilla!  This month, representatives from the MFC Board will be presenting a brief overview of the organization and it's highlights from 2018 and plans for the coming year.

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.
