Commentary: Democracy and the Arts | Oregon ArtsWatch
Closing OCAC buries a history that goes back to 1907, when Julia Hoffman helped start it and soon became the face of the school—and the Arts and Crafts movement in Portland. Walk through any of Portland’s inner eastside neighborhoods: Those bungalows, cottages, Queen Annes and four-squares prized so highly now came out of that movement, inspired by Hoffman. The number of artists who taught or learned their craft at what became OCAC is enormous.

In Portland, a neighborhood designs its own solution to displacement - Curbed
Called Right 2 Root, the community-led design initiative released a report earlier this month that lays out a blueprint for creating community assets, housing, and commercial space throughout Albina. The brainchild of Cat Goughnour, an Oregon-born sociologist, policy expert, and housing and equity advocate, the report is a framework for community-led urbanism. Crafted with help from community members, as well as input from the Center for Public Interest Design, Portland State University, Salazar Architect, and other local design firms, it offers a holistic solution to housing and economic issues. In other words, Right 2 Root is about flipping the typical top-down planning process on its head.

Deconstruction Requirements | The City of Portland, Oregon
In Portland, more than 300 single-family homes are demolished each year. This produces thousands of tons of waste — a majority of which could be salvaged for reuse. From start to finish, deconstruction protects health, creates pathways to construction careers and generates affordable reusable building materials. Currently, less than 10 percent of houses that are removed use deconstruction. Approximately 33 percent of single-family demolitions will be subject to the deconstruction requirement. Increased deconstruction will:

Divert 8 million pounds (4,000 tons) of materials for reuse (annually).
Create job opportunities that act as a pathway for construction careers.
Increase the likelihood of discovering materials containing lead and asbestos for safe removal and disposal.

TriMet’s budget is an elaborate shell game – Andrew Riley – Medium
we need to drop the narrative that TriMet is fundamentally limited in how it can spend money, and that’s why the community doesn’t get what we demand. That’s absolute nonsense. We need to call out the reality: TriMet is run like a private business, and its constituents aren’t riders and workers, but rather the bond/credit-rating agencies and investors who benefit from bond sales and capital investments. Their Board and senior leadership choose to spend money on their own priorities, and they make a conscious choice not to invest in what the community and their workforce demands of them (better service, better working conditions).

ABOUT US | Inside Fashion Design
Inside Fashion Design is an intimate behind the scenes look into the world of apparel design. As two designers, with a collective forty years in the industry, we’ve had the privilege of working at and being part of the vibrant, innovative, culture of Nike, a little company founded on the principle of design. Later came Donna Karan, Tommy Hilfiger, and others. Throughout we mastered our craft, and upon feeling an entrepreneurial pull, opened our own consulting studio called Creative Capital Design four years ago.

Given that one of the most joyful aspects of our work is nurturing and mentoring new talent, we went searching for a platform to do this beyond our studio walls. And Inside Fashion Design was born. Our belief is that all who live for or have a curiosity for fashion design should have the opportunity to explore it. And so, we open the door to our library of expertise and resources, inviting you in to experience them. Design workshops, tutorials, trend talks and exclusive insider interviews. Here you can study the wide array of industry disciplines, including roles you may be unaware of but are integral to making the cogs of a company turn. There are so many possibilities for discovering pleasure in artistic fulfillment.

Police searching for Portland credit union robber dubbed ‘Lazy L - KPTV - FOX 12
Posted: Sep 29, 2017 6:07 PM PDT
Updated: Sep 29, 2017 6:07 PM PDT

Police are searching for a Portland credit union robber who investigators are calling the “Lazy Leprechaun.”

Officers responded to the Advantis Credit Union on the 3000 block of Southeast Belmont Street at 1:08 p.m. Friday.

Employees said a man presented a demand note and obtained an undisclosed amount of cash from a teller. No weapon was displayed.

Officers searched the area, but did not locate anyone matching the robber’s description.

The suspect is described as a white man, around 30 years old, 6 feet tall with a thin build, red facial hair and he was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt.

Police are calling him the “Lazy Leprechaun.” The same suspect is believed to have robbed the Unitus Credit Union on the 3300 block of North Williams Avenue on Wednesday evening.

During that robbery, a demand note was also used.

Multiple photos were released of the suspect from both cases Friday.

Three lessons from a simple new chart about Portland housing
A condo can be a relatively cheap path to homeownership. But condo building has become rare, in part due to a national shift toward renting (a shift that was involuntary for many of the households, disproportionately Latino and Black, whose wealth was wiped out in the housing bubble) and in part because construction defect lawsuits by condo residents against their buildings’ developers have tripled the cost of condo developers’ insurance.

Gentrification in America Report
In all, 58 percent of Portland’s lower-priced neighborhoods gentrified since 2000, the highest rate of any city reviewed. An initial wave started back in the early 1990s, and young professionals continue to flock to the city today. “Portland, in some ways, was at the forefront of the return to urban living,” said Lisa Bates, director of the Center for Urban Studies at Portland State University.

Funding Washington HS Community Center – The Southeast Examiner of Portland Oregon
In Jeff Cole’s commentary, he asked City Council for $60 million to begin building the community center. Cole states that with all the budget cuts to Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R), it must seem like asking for the Taj Mahal or the moon, but in reality, this is money the City of Portland should have considering the building boom going on right now.

“So why as Portland is booming and growing like crazy, are we cutting budgets, cutting services which means reduced livability?” Cole asks.

Even as apartments are going up everywhere and the population increases, it still fails to generate more resources to attend to the basic needs of the people like police and decent roads.

Cole believes that fix lies in a statewide ban on the real estate transfer tax and uses the example of the recent sale of Big Pink appraised at 1/3 of 1 billion dollars–$372.5 million.

Because of Measure #47/50 the City only received taxes on the 1995 value of Big Pink with a 3 percent increase per year or $1.4 million. If the property had been fairly reassessed when it sold last year we would have received $4 million in tax revenue off this property.

Oregon is the only state that does not reassess taxes when a property is sold and because of this Portland loses out.

Is hip Portland over? How the rent crisis is displacing the city's creative soul | Society | The Guardian
Apartment occupancy rates – now at 96.8% – are second only to New York City. But this may be understated because of lower occupancy rates in expensive downtown apartments. Occupancy rates in the once-affordable suburbs may be as high as 97.3%. If you’re not already in an apartment, it’s increasingly difficult to find one, and being in one offers no guarantees.

Was Portland's lead crisis preventable? | OregonLive.com
When the EPA tightened its lead rules in 1991, Portland officials balked.

City leaders didn't believe lead exposure was a major problem in water. Portland's Bull Run watershed was considered lead-free. The city's delivery system never included lead service lines.

But Portland's water was corrosive enough to leach lead from pipes and faucets. Testing from 10 percent of sampled high-risk homes revealed lead levels of at least 53 parts per billion; the EPA wanted it no higher than 15.

The EPA set a deadline to start treatment in 1997. By June 1994, city officials were laying the groundwork for "flexibility." They pitched regulators on a "better approach" that would target plumbing instead of injecting chemicals into everyone's water.

A weighty factor in Portland's hesitancy: the business community.

Officials didn't want to upset companies using city water to clean microchips or concoct microbrews. The estimated cost for Intel alone to treat its water would be $670,000 up front plus $310,000 a year, according to records from city archives.
