From Portland Bureau of Transportation:
Throughout the month of May, PBOT collected petitions of support for the Errol Heights LID, held meetings in the neighborhood with property owners, and answered a variety of questions and concerns about proposed changes in the neighborhood.
Errol Heights property owners have turned in 57 petitions supporting the LID. Waivered properties plus non-waivered supporters reached 62% (properties with waivers of remonstrance are counted as automatic supporters of the LID). Even if we didn’t count waivered properties as automatic yes votes, the LID still received close to 50% support (currently at about 48%).
While this level of support sends a strong signal to City Council that the neighborhood is behind the project, more petitions are always better. It’s not too late for your support to be counted. Petitions can still be mailed in using the prepaid envelope from the packet. Contact us if you need any help.
The date for the LID Formation Hearing at City Council is still pending but will likely occur in August or September. We plan on sending a followup email in July with more information.
