Today, Mayor Adams announced that he will put the NW Parking Plan before City Council on Thursday, December 6, at 3 pm. More information and supporting documents are available at http://www.portlandonline.com/mayor/index.cfm?c=52616.

NWDA voted to support the Mayor’s plan in January 2012. NWDA supports the concept of a TMA but has not developed a formal position on the terms of the TMA that was made available today.

Elms Update – 11/29/12

Comments Off on Elms Update – 11/29/12

Despite the agreed upon efforts to save the elm trees at NW Johnson and 19th, the developer and City Forester have informed NWDA that the two western-most elm trees must be removed. According the City Forester, “a permit is being issued for removal of the two western-most elm trees at this location. This is due to the extensive root and crown reduction these trees will incur during the project, making their survival untenable. Retention of these trees would create a significant public safety hazard.”

The developer’s arborist prepared a report detailing the findings and conclusions. We will post the report as soon as possible.

Mill Creek will proceed according the agreed upon plan with NWDA. They will continue to try to save the two easternmost elms. The two elms that are to be removed will be reclaimed and used locally. Specific plans are not yet available.

NW Neighborhood Tree Group Forming Now!

Comments Off on NW Neighborhood Tree Group Forming Now!

The results of the 2012 NW Portland Street Tree Inventory detailed the benefits of the neighborhood’s extensive tree canopy (http://www.northwestdistrictassociation.org/?p=4709). However, the study also exposed specific weaknesses that will ultimately affect the health of the community. What can be done to overcome these deficiencies? How does a neighborhood insure a healthy street tree canopy for future generations?

A NW Neighborhood Tree Group is forming now to develop short term and long term strategies and to turn those strategies into actions.

The group’s first meeting will be Thursday, November 29, 10-11:30am at Friendly House. If you are interested in trees and would like to help with this effort, please join us. Everyone is welcome. To learn more and get involved, please contact Mary Ann Pastene, maryann.pastene@gmail.com.
