NOW AVAILABLE! THE CITY OF PORTLAND STAFF REPORTS FOR MACADAM RIDGE
This is more than NIMBY--5 out of the 6 City of Portland Bureaus are not in favor at this time. Click the following link to view the Staff Report: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B354E2rq2N_SYXNTbGlQdTVlZ1U Conclusions begin on Page 38. Those not recommending currently are the:
- Bureau of Development Services (BDS)
- Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT)
- City of Portland Environmental Services
- City of Portland Fire Prevention Services
- Portland Parks & Recreation Urban Forestry
This does not bode well for the development plan, but it does not mean that this proposal is dead. **WE STILL NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO DEFEAT THIS PLAN! THIS REPORT IS NOT A DECISION.** The review body for this case is the Hearings Officer who will make the decision on this case. Please continue writing letters if any of the issues outlined by the Bureaus concerns you and deliver them by Oct. 16.

How to be Involved in Your Neighborhood
South Burlingame Neighborhood Association is involved in many events. Some neighbors like to organize events like picnics and block parties. Others prefer to work around environmental issues, where neighbors participate in park cleanups and stream restorations, while other neighborhoods are involved in land use issues, carefully monitoring livability concerns. All activities make a difference and there is bound to be something that appeals to everyone, find out how you can get involved. Please contact our Chair.
