The next Colwood strategy meeting is Tuesday, August 12th from 7pm to 8:30pm at Central Northeast Neighbors, 4415 NE 87th Avenue. Please join us!
Colwood is scheduled to go before City Council on Wednesday, September 17th. To ensure success at the Council we need to make new connections, maintain connections, and reconnect where needed with individuals and organizations who support keeping Colwood green. We need a critical mass of testimony and support being provided to the Mayor and Commissioners. If you support keeping Colwood green, be sure to contact them!
- The Port of Portland has tabled its plans for a third runway for the foreseeable future. This removes much of the Port’s drive for supporting the rezoning.
- The Sierra Club has taken an official stand opposing the rezoning. They join a long list of organizations and individuals opposed to the rezoning of Colwood.
- The City of Portland continues to meet with the land owners to discussion purchasing Colwood as a permanent public space. Despite what some proponents of the rezone have stated publicly, the City has always had and continues to express a strong interest in this property.
