JumpTown–A New Vision for the Rose Quarter

memorial coliseumCharlie Burr of public relations firm Edelman, will present the new JumpTown concept for revitalizing the Rose Quarter at our next meeting on November 18th. The November meeting was delayed a week due to the Veterans Day holiday. Edelman represents the Trail Blazers and Portland Arena Management on development plans for the Memorial Coliseum and vicinity. The JumpTown name conjures the jazz history of the area prior to its bulldozing in the wake of urban renewal. Once a thriving neighborhood and now a sea of concrete, much attention has been paid as of late as to how to breathe life back into the district.

Jumptown Rose Quarter

Come next Wednesday and see if this is the right idea and if it can benefit the residents of NE Portland.


Vanport Project Advisory Committee to Meet

Find out what is going on with negotiations to complete development of the Vanport Project on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard between Alberta and Killingsworth.  The heart of the King Neighborhood and the key to a vibrant commercial center, the Vanport Project has seen many false starts over the years and has struggled to land an anchor tenant to begin construction at the Alberta Corner.  If you can’t make the meeting, the Association has our own representative on the committee who can give us an update at the Association’s meeting.
