Dang. This is way late but the public hearing for SK Northwest is today at 1:30 at the Bureau of Development Services (1900 SW 4th Ave, 3rd floor).
To refresh your memory, SK Northwest is the company that is in escrow on a property just south of OMSI on the riverfront. They want to be exempt from allowing public trail access across their property. The city of Portland denied their application (in part after receiving 125 letters in opposition from the public). SK Northwest then appealed the decision.
The public hearing today will hear from both sides and I imagine there will plenty of lawyers in attendance. If you’re downtown and can sneak away, it might be interesting.
