Meeting Notice : Homestead Prepares!

Zoom monthly meeting for anyone on the second Tuesday of each month. 

This Month:   February 9, 2021 from 7pm to 8pm PST

A year ago the Homestead NET team actively started a block coordinator effort to get all the single family homes in Homestead surveyed around emergency preparedness and connected with neighbors on their  "blocks". After 40% completion, Covid hit making it impossible to complete the face-to-face interviews.  A few blocks have over 90% participation, but many others have not started yet.  To involve everyone we have started monthly Zoom meetings open to everyone in Homestead interested in their household emergency plans and their integration into a plan for our Homestead Community.

The Marquam Hill Connector  project is one of the components of the larger SW Corridor Plan.  The plan proposes a mechanized pedestrian and bicycle connection between a proposed light rail station in Lair Hill near SW Gibbs Street and the Marquam Hill medical campuses.  The Homestead Neighborhood Association Board endorses Barbur Boulevard versus Naito as the alignment for this project.

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
