Rose Quarter Re-development?

There’s been a lot of discussion about the Rose Quarter Development lately – not only plans to tear down the Memorial Stadium and build a baseball stadium, but also the proposed creation of a new entertainment/restaurant district. Some say it will continue the revitalization of the area – and be a great spot for an outdoor music venue; others say it will empty the city’s wallet and doesn’t reflect Portland’s values.

If you’ve got something to say – or just want to listen – come to the public meeting here at Leftbank on April 14th from 6-8pm and grab Sam Adams or Randy Leonard by the ear. Reps from the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, the Trailblazers, and the Portland Development Commission will also be there.
