We previously let you know about the family shelter, Lilac Meadows, that is opening at the Briarwood Motel on Powell. The Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association is forming a group to provide and serve meals to the families that will be staying at the shelter. We are hoping to start with once a month and work up from there.
Be a Welcoming Neighbor and Help Us Out!
If you’d like to get involved, please send an email to Jessica. There were a lot of interested folks at our July meeting. Unfortunately, the sign-up sheet to get involved never made it back to us, so please express your interest again! Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you SO MUCH for your help and support.
At this point, PP&R is looking for the surrounding community to provide some final guidance on any tweaks that could done to the design, including the planned public artwork, to ensure it aligns with the current desires of the neighborhood. This is where you come in! Please take this survey and provide your input to the process.
One of the key questions of the survey is “4. Thank you for participating in the redevelopment plan for Laurelwood Park. Your comments and experiences will help shape your new park. Is there anything else you would like us to know?” This is where we have an opportunity to impact that project with some fresh ideas!
For example, what about bringing a Portland LooTM to the park!? That would allow people to spend more time at the park and not have to worry about where to find restroom facilities (and not bother nearby businesses) and the Loos are easy to maintain and clean (and can’t get burnt and melted like what happened to the port-a-potty in Kern park recently).
