7:10 (35 min): 5415 SE Powell Blvd., Findley Commons at St. Mark’s Church site. Read Stapleton, Planning Group Managerat DOWL, will talk about the proposed development of housing for veterans at the St. Mark’s Church site. Development would be in what is now the northern half of the church parking lot. Project would include 35 units (20 one-bedroom units and 15 single rooms). About 33 parking spaces would be shared between the new building and the church. This meeting is a chance for neighbors to discuss the proposal with the developer, share information, and identify any concerns.
