Neighborhood Meeting - September 17th
The Port of Portland’s new Deicing Program and how it could affect us
Crime Prevention Issues with Havilah Ferschweiler
(Crime Prevention Program Coordinator-North Portland) and Officer Steve Jacquot
Discuss the Fall Clean-up/possible Tree Planting Day – October 25
Reminder—there will be a Tree Celebration scheduled on September 21 at 7 PM
Thoughts from Leslie Sawyer, chairman, BNA
With mitigation from losing trees, we have an opportunity to start making Bridgeton into “Portland’s Other Waterfront”. Plans are in place to widen the levee near the school which will allow us the chance to build a great little park. We also want to put up a neighborhood entry of some kind at Gantenbein and Bridgeton and work on the Bridgeton Trail and our streetscape plans. We probably will not have time to discuss this at this meeting but would love to get creative design input and funding ideas. Send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org
Sam Rodriguez of Trammell Crow Residential just called to say that they are finishing their Planning Commission presentation for an apartment complex west of Bridgeton Road. They will want to meet with us soon, but will not be ready by the 17th.
Columbia School 716 NE Marine Dr 7 PM to 9 PM

Goodbye to the Cottonwood :-(
On days when its cotton is in my food, mouth, and eyes....I go yuck! [or went yuck]
But on the many more other days - when it was alive with birds and their singing - well that made up for eating cotton...
But after today - no more. It's a tree I have a view of from my house - it will be odd to look out and not see it and I can only hope that what seems like millions of birds - find new homes.
And as a cynic who has no trust in an administration that disses real science - I ask - what if as soon as next year when we have real scientists back in the administration of government agencies [you know the ones who don't alter finding of their subordinates] - what if they then decide that old trees on levees are a good thing?
Addendum - beware - if you walk near the tree - a chorus of tree cutting idiots will wonder aloud what would happen if a tree limb were to fall on you...I walked by with my dog [the road is blocked off at the other end so the tree direction was about it for dog walking] and we were way outside the orange cones. A bicyclist also went by with his 2 kids. We all got called stupid and we were all wished damage done to us by falling tree limbs... [nice people]
I went back with my camcorder and they were silent- easier to be stupid when there is no video around!
