  • The architects for a proposed 34-unit apartment building between 11th and 12th north of SW Gibbs will present information and answer questions. The plans currently provide off-street parking for all units.

 

Following committee reports, a "work-session" will be held to discuss the current Area Permit Parking Program (APPP).

Proposed Trails on un-built Rights of Way

Aaron Clemons, Trails Committee Chair, prepared some excellent maps of some potential trail connectors.  These will involve further discussion.  The suggested trails are

Whitaker ROW:  Multiple sections that lead from Barbur up to Terwilliger through and beyond OHSU Campus.

Curry Trail:  Part of the segment between Veterans Hospital Road and 10th.  Other possible Curry segments are 11th to 12th and 13th to Marquam Hill Road.

 Improve the “demand trail” in existence from the end of Bancroft up to Terwilliger to meet at the stairs on the west side.

Possibly building a trail on the easterly side of the guardrail going up Condor Lane up to Terwilliger.

Condor to Eagle Point Park via Lowell

Nominations are still being taken.  If you would like to suggest an unbuilt R.O.W. for a trail, would like to provide information to this group, or are interested in joining, contact us at homestead@swni.org.  For nominations, please be as specific as possible concerning the location of the unbuilt R.O.W. and feel free to indicate any additional information that might help convey your ideas.
