Agenda December 7, 2011

Hillsdale Neighborhood Association

December 7, 2011

Location: The Watershed


November Action Items



John Gould moved that the Hillsdale Neighborhood Association President write a letter to Greta Pass of Chase Bank stating that the membership supports a multi-story and/or multi-tenant building at the site the Bank is proposing to construct in the Town Center and that the building itself, without benefit of canopy, constitute at least 50% of the site.  The letter should request that Greta Pass forward it to Chase Bank senior management who have the authority to approve such a project and to request a meeting to agree upon a branch with the design as well as functional features which will make it mutually acceptable to Chase Bank, Hillsdale, Wardin Investments, and the City of Portland’s Town Center code. The motion passed unanimously.



Don Baack made a motion that Home Forward provide pedestrian connections along SW California and along SW 26th Avenue to make them connect.  Further, that Home Forward provide a curb to prevent storm water from flowing down to the wall of the housing units located well below the street; boulders demarcating the side of the street are not acceptable.  And further that Home Forward and the Bureau of Environmental Services work together to make the recently acquired headwaters area into an environment useable by residents of the Hillsdale Terrace for reflection and contact with nature, similar to the work which they did on the headwaters at the end of SW Texas Street.  The motion was seconded and passed 9 to 1.



Don Baack moved that unless identical signage is provided on Bertha Boulevard and Capitol Hill Road separately marking “Stephens Creek Natural Area” and the “Raz-Baack Crossing” that the HNA request that the word “Crossing” be dropped in re-naming Hillsdale Terrace “Stephens Creek Crossing.”  The motion was seconded and passed 10 to 4.
