SK Northwest, the company that wants to develop a parcel on the Willamette River and not allow public trail access through their property, has appealed the recent denial of their development permit.
According to Kate Green of the City of Portland Bureau of Development Services, a public hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday, July 12 at 1:30 PM (location TBA).
125 of you wrote letters opposing their initial application and we need to continue to show strong and well-informed opposition (see comments). We are up against some major firepower and some deep pockets, so please mark your calendars and consider attending this very important public hearing.
I have asked Kate Green for a copy of the appeal and I’ll keep you posted with any developments. Thanks to the 10 or so readers who have called and/or emailed me about this in the last few minutes! I really appreciate the help. Stay tuned.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
