Below are the preliminary plans, as presented to the Errol Heights Park Citizen Advisory Committee. Want to know more or ask about these plans? Come to the BDNA All-Committees meeting on Tuesday, August 21, 7:00-9:00PM, at the Brentwood-Darlington Community Center (7211 SE 62nd Ave, 97206) and talk to the Portland Parks and Recreation project staff in person! Portland Bureau of Transportation will also be present to discuss how their Errol Heights projects affect the park.
Join the Errol Heights Park Community Advisory Committee at their second meeting on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, 6:30-9:30PM at Smile Station in Sellwood.
At this meeting, landscape design consultants will use the expertise and knowledge of the committee to refine plans to compliment everyday use of the site. Additionally, the committee members will walk through a group exercise to explore site layout and types of park activities. Using mapped information and the Master Plan, the land scape design consultants will then develop design concept(s) to be reviewed by PP&R, the advisory committee members, and the general public at an upcoming open house in the fall.
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.
