TONIGHT!! November 27
You have seen in the news that Mayor Adams has made it his mission to get City Council approval of annexation of WHI to allow for Port development before the current Council ends. While there is discussion on the merits of development, there is general agreement that this rush to rule and disregard for the process and the parties involved is wrong.
The Audubon Society has requested that you speak out at the hearing tonight in opposition to development and opposition to the process. This hearing may decide the future of North Portland and we are grateful for the position made by the North Portland Chairs Network and any position you as individual chairs or Neighborhood Associations can take.

This project will have irreparable damage to our environment our community, has been proven by the studies conducted to be economically nonviable and destructive to the community health and violates our principals of openness and fairness in governing. Please voice your position at this critical time.
For those who do not know what it looks like - here is a post from when I kayaked around the island
