I'd be interested in hearing what other ideas people have for occupancy or development of this site that would be preferable to Home Despot or Lowes.

While it's important to point out the disadvantages of citing a big box store there, it helps to come to the table with viable alternative suggestions.

north portlander-- there IS an alternative on the table 02.Dec.2004 20:08

land use guy for activism

besides home depot and lowes as the two big box proposals, there is another that includes more environmental design, small local businesses and green energy occupants including a wind energy company.

at this meeting we have the ability to voice our support for such an alternative. but we need to register our comments or PDC will think Portland wants a home despot.

go to the meetings and see the alternatives on the table.

voice your opinion.

activism.

Land Use Guy -- Are these proposals in writing? Where can one go to either see one or order one to become better informed before the meeting?
