Report Illegal Fireworks

What can you do when you hear/see illegal fireworks?  REPORT IT by calling 503-823-BOOM (503-823-2666)!  

Brentwood-Darlington has a serious issue when it comes to illegal fireworks.  Last year two houses in our community were destroyed by fire due to illegal fireworks.  A few days ago, neighbors found this chunk of metal from a mortar (pictured below) smoldering in their yard. Luckily, no one was injured and no fires were started, this time.

Setting off fireworks before and after the 4th causes undue suffering and stress for children, animals, and veterans in our neighborhood.  Please report illegal fireworks and keep your own festivities safe and confined to the 4th of July. Looking for something fun to do?  Bring the family to the Brentwood-Darlington 4th of July Parade!

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.
