No land use committee meeting in June 2024 (updates)

June 16, 2024 Comments Off on No land use committee meeting in June 2024 (updates)

The meeting previously scheduled for Tuesday, June 18 has been CANCELED. Please plan to attend our STNA Board Meeting at 7 p.m. on June 20 instead.


 No current land use proposals to discuss.

– Consider attending the SE Uplift Land Use and Transportation Committee meeting on Monday 6/17, either in person or online. Details here:

– Neighbor Tracy Schwartz let me know that the former church property at SE Brooklyn and 73rd is permitted for demolition ( As this is not a residential property, there aren’t the same noticing requirements, which is why STNA and immediate neighbors were not notified. Tracy’s going to see what she can learn, and I’ll post back.

– Join the STNA Board! If you enjoy engaging with land use, transportation, and urban planning topics, there are two related STNA board positions coming up for election — Land Use Chair and SE Uplift Land Use and Transportation Representative. (I’ve served as land use chair for the previous two terms, so can’t be nominated this time around.) There are also a couple other open seats on the board if you want to engage some other way. Attend our board meeting on June 20 for details and to nominate yourself.

– Powell-Division Safety Improvements Project. Below is the most recent update from TriMet (from 6/18/24):

Our project is progressing along as we are nearing 90% design. Staff from multiple departments are also reviewing and resolving comments from various City of Portland bureaus. We are also working on extending Intergovernmental Agreements with the City of Portland and City of Gresham.

– SE Uplift Land Use and Transportation Committee notes from 6/17 meeting:

  • Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District exploration continues in East Portland, including along 82nd Ave. with some extension westward a few blocks in on SE Division and SE Powell.
  • Portland Neighbors Welcome presented their Inner Eastside for All campaign to the committee. Voting members present (none from STNA) elected to recommend to the SEUL board that it sign on in support of the campaign.
  • Earthquake-ready Burnside Bridge Replacement project will have an online open house in July. Weigh in on design options.

– SE 59th Ave. and Woodward Visioning. No updates since April.

June updates from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability.

As a reminder, here’s our collection of land use and transportation resources.
