Suit of Armor at WineUp
One of the most recent additions to North Williams Avenue, WineUp on Williams opened this fall in Eliot’s historic Rinehart Building. Recently, I stopped by to take advantage of the bar’s “Tightwad Tuesday” deals and to chat with co-owner Wayne Oppenheimer.

Barred Owl in Eliot
The spotted owl has been a flash point for forest management in Oregon for decades, but how many of us have actually seen one, or its nemesis, the barred owl? I haven’t, and I grew up in a logging community.

The annual Irvington Auction is coming soon! This year, we will be celebrating with TOTALLY AWESOME 80s. The fun event will be held nearby at the Left Bank Annex, across from the Rose Garden, on Friday, March 14 at 5:30 p.m. The evening begins with the silent auction, where patrons will have the chance to browse through a wide variety of silent auction items from massages to wine to language lessons. Once the silent auction closes, attendees will enjoy a lovely dinner and exciting live auction featuring trips, unique local experiences and one-of-a-kind student classroom art pieces. It will be a TOTALLY AWESOME night to remember.
The Comprehensive Plan process continues. The second round of plan comments ended December 31. The Comp Plan, as it is called, is a 20-year blueprint for how the City of Portland envisions its growth and development in the upcoming two decades. It will affect how all of Portland’s neighborhoods and streets evolve, especially close in neighborhoods like Eliot. Some of the plan’s outlines were already agreed upon in the NE Quadrant Plan that was covered in the Eliot News previously. That two year effort proposed a number of changes to zoning along Broadway and into Eliot and west of Williams south of Russell.
Eliot in First Quarter 2014 is an exciting, energized and rapidly changing neighborhood. During my time serving on the Eliot Neighborhood Association (ENA) Board, many events and neighborhood highlights have held my interest and spurred me towards further involvement, gaining more opportunities to experience and help Eliot thrive.

Newly Planted Street Tree
For the past four years, Portland Parks and Recreation (PP&R) has sponsored street tree inventories in neighborhoods across Portland as a way to assess the condition of the urban forest and build community around this shared resource. Thus far, the project has collected information about the location, species, health, and size of nearly 70,000 trees in 17 neighborhoods.
The current Comprehensive Planning process provides city planners with a once every 20-year opportunity to rethink planning processes and tools. It is evaluating two tools that are important to Eliot as part of that process; the Ex zone and “institutional” (hospitals and colleges) land uses and users.
Sign Caps from around Portland
The Beauty and Livability Committee was formed in 2012 to implement the Neighborhood Livability Partnership. This one-of-a-kind Partnership between the Lloyd Community Association, Eliot neighborhood, and the Portland Arena Management (Trail Blazers) is a unique opportunity for political support, collaboration and physical investments. The focus of improvement is the area between Weidler and Russell from south to north and between NE 7th to the river, an area plagued by sports-related traffic and parking issues. In April of 2013, the Eliot Board of Directors voted to accept funding from the Neighborhood Livability Partnership for two projects. The Board approved the funds for planting 14 street trees and the Intersection Repair, a painting on Tillamook and Rodney Avenue, completed by over 50 volunteers who designed and completed the project in June 2013. Unused funding from 2013 will roll forward since the funding from the Trail Blazers offers three-consecutive years at $5,000 per year for improvements. The Beauty team is hoping that they will be able to partner with landowners for matching funds to implement larger projects.
