No land use committee meeting in June 2022

June 9, 2022 Comments Off on No land use committee meeting in June 2022

We will not have a land use committee meeting in June. It had been scheduled for 6/14/22, but is now CANCELED. The STNA board meeting for 6/16/22 is still happening.

We have a couple of special guests joining us at our 6/16 board meeting:

  • Gina Roletto, assistant principal at Kellogg Middle School, will brainstorm with us ways the school community and neighbors can work together to keep the school ground clean. She’ll also talk about traffic flow issues.
  • Monica Avila, director of housing at Do Good Multnomah, will update us on the Findley Commons veterans supportive housing development and how residents there have been settling in to their new homes.

Updates. . .

  • Pedestrian crossings on Powell and Division. Here’s the testimony STNA delivered to TriMet at its 5/25/22 board meeting. TriMet’s general manager replied with the status of the project, which remains mostly unchanged since the last briefing we received on March 3, 2022. Namely, TriMet is still working out budget and plans for the crossing at SE 79th. They still need to secure funding for the new scope, resubmit plans, and so on. Since all the crossings and improvements will be bid as one project, delays at one crossing hold up the whole project. You can view the 5/25/22 TriMet board meeting here. (STNA testimony starts at 7:50. The GM addresses it in his report at 57:30.)
  • A permit was issued in January 2022 to install security gates at the vehicle entrance to the Powell Self Storage facility. The gates have not yet been installed. I have not yet followed up with Code Enforcement, but plan to do so soon.
  • Mt. Tabor Maintenance Yard project updates. The webpage hasn’t been updated in a while, but work continues.
  • June updates from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, including how to participate in the Lower Southeast Rising Area Plan online open house and survey. This planning project affects SE neighborhoods to the south of South Tabor.
  • As a reminder, here’s our collection of land use and transportation resources.

STNA is committed to holding open, public meetings where everyone is welcomed and respected. Please email us at if you have any questions, concerns, or need special accommodations to attend and participate in your neighborhood meetings.

Email if you have land use questions or suggestions for future meeting topics.
