United Neighbors for Reform Demolition/Development Resolution

November 1, 2014
To: All Portland Neighborhood Associations
From: United Neighborhoods for Reform

In response to the increasing trend in demolitions of single-family homes, a coalition of Portland neighborhoods, United Neighborhoods for Reform (UNR), has developed the attached resolution to be presented to the Portland City Council by mid-December 2014.

We seek your neighborhood association’s endorsement of this resolution.

This resolution is the result of several neighborhood summits representing 21 neighborhoods and many committee meetings to develop petition language. Discussion covered issues including demolition and the size of replacement houses, loss of affordable housing, impact of lot splitting on many neighborhoods, and exposure to asbestos and lead resulting from demolitions.

In addition to the summits, approximately 2,200 Portland-area residents have signed the online petition to limit demolitions. An online survey has been completed by 460 people. Of those responding, 84% oppose the current rate of demolitions and 91% support changes to city code and policies to limit demolitions and the size of replacement housing.

After collecting neighborhood association endorsements we will take this resolution to City Council as early as mid-December. We also ask you to be part of a huge turnout at the City Council meeting to support these changes (date to be announced).

Please discuss this resolution with your neighborhood association. Send an email reply by December 12, 2014, to tell us whether your association supports the resolution to:

State in your email response:

Yes, our neighborhood supports the UNR resolution regarding demolition and development in Portland.
No, our neighborhood does not support the UNR resolution regarding demolition and development in Portland.

Also in your email include:

Name and phone number of neighborhood association representative sending the email.

If you would like a UNR representative to present the resolution at your neighborhood association meeting, contact Margaret Davis by email at manaobooks(at sign) .

Thank you for your consideration and support,

United Neighborhoods for Reform
