Public Comment Period for Apartment Building Proposed on Woodstock

Public Comment Period for Apartment Building Proposed on Woodstock NOW OPEN! RAISE YOUR VOICE!

Developers plan to build a four-story apartment building that fills The Joinery block in Woodstock. It will have 195 units, 116 parking spaces, a central courtyard, and commercial space on Woodstock Blvd.

The proposed building contrasts sharply with the moderate height and volume of Woodstock’s other commercial buildings.  It will add hundreds of cars to the existing congestion.  The building will be built, but massive public outcry can influence its form and impact.

Please take a moment to call for humane construction and design in Woodstock.  You may register your views during a public comment period that ends on July 5th at 5:00PM.  Send comments to city staffer Andrew Gulizia at Andrew.Gulizia@portlandoregon.gov.  Include Case File Number LU 19-163863 AD.

To be most effective, your comments should be based on:

(1)  Specific city policies, which can be found under “Policies to Guide New Development” at https://keepwoodstockwonderful.wordpress.com; or

(2)  Approval criteria listed in the city’s notice, which can be found under “Actions Needed Now!” at https://keepwoodstockwonderful.wordpress.com.

What happens in Woodstock will shape the future in Woodstock and adjoining neighborhoods.  Please weigh in!  Our collective future depends on our raised voices.  To follow this project closely, visit Keep Woodstock Wonderful.

Precision Castparts Spill Update

On Wednesday, May 15, at around 12:40 p.m. local time, a truck carrying a Nitric and Hydrofluoric acid mixture leaked onto the ground at Precision Castparts’ facility in Milwaukie. Employees were evacuated and Clackamas Fire and Portland and Gresham HazMat teams were on scene. No injuries have been reported.

DEQ has been assessing the site. There are no issues with air quality. There was some release to Precision Castparts’ stormwater system, which discharges to Johnson Creek. Precision Castparts treated and recirculated the water with caustic to bring the pH up. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife conducted spot checks on margins and backwaters along Johnson Creek, but no dead fish were observed. DEQ instructed Precision Castparts to collect samples of the discharge water at the outfall and we expect results within a week or two.

On Thursday, May 16, a DEQ Water Quality specialist conducted a site inspection and evaluated the stormwater system at Precision Castparts. He determined there should be no environmental harm, as long as staff followed the established stormwater pollution control plan. He is waiting on an official report from Precision Castparts to understand exactly how they responded to the incident.

The release was apparently the result of a failure on a sampling port on a chamber in the tanker, but investigation into the cause is ongoing.
