Sponsorship Opportunity: Concerts In The Park 2016

Sponsorship Opportunity: Concerts In The Park 2016 GABA members — It’s that time again, when the Hazelwood Neighborhood Association seeks sponsorships for the annual East Portland Concerts at Ventura Park. Assuming we can raise enough money, we’ve tentatively scheduled the concerts for the first four Wednesday evenings in August. We’re starting to select the bands, but we can’t book them until we’ve raised the funds. For your convenience, I’ve attached the pledge form, which includes information about the various sponsorship levels, and the benefits of each. Note that the deadline to receive full benefit has been extended to March 17. Pledges can be made after that date, but sponsors will receive benefits as available. Thanks so much for your sponsorship over the past several years. We hope you are able to be a sponsor of our concert series, again this year. — Linda SFFA16_NeighborhoodConcerts...

March 10th Meeting Details – PDC & City of Portland Join us for Updates!

March 10th Meeting Details – PDC & City of Portland Join us for Updates! Susan Kuhn from the Portland Development Commission and Christine Scarzello from the City of Portland will be updating Gateway Area Business Association members about the Gateway Urban Renewal Area (URA) and the City’s Comprehensive Plan at our March 10th lunchtime meeting. Susan will talk about the Gateway Urban Renewal Area (URA) will sunset in June 2022. The Gateway Five-Year Action Plan has been drafted to focus PDC’s  limited URA resources and coordinate efforts with partner City bureaus to address the challenges that have prevented Gateway from achieving the same degree of success that other areas  in the Portland region have achieved in the past few years. The Action Plan also focuses on building partnerships, supporting local community organizations, and working with private sector partners to deliver on community goals and aspirations.  PDC will present the draft plan  and would like to get your feedback and  input. Chris will also provide updates on the zoning projects that will update zone maps and regulations to comply with the Comprehensive Plan, such as the Mixed Use Zoning Project, the Employment Zoning Project, and the Miscellaneous Zoning Amendments package (which may have some changes to the Gateway Plan District regulations). Use this important opportunity to provide feedback to the PDC and the City – does the plan reflect community goals and interests in Gateway? Where do you see Halsey/Weidler or Gateway in 5 years? Should anything be emphasized more? Did they miss anything? Susan Kuhn is a Sr. Project/Program Manager with the Portland Development Commission. Susan has focused efforts in the Halsey/Weidler Commercial District since 2013 working with business and property owners to...
