If you have an upcoming home remodel or other improvement project that will create waste from the construction site, you’ll want to know about steps you can take to protect your health and reduce your exposure to asbestos. You’ll also want to make sure your materials don’t contain asbestos, and if they do, you’ll want to know how to handle and dispose of them properly.

St Philips the Deacon
120 NE Knott St
Place yourself at the corner of NE 7th and NE Broadway. What businesses do you remember seeing there? A few weeks ago, I would have said, “A mattress store, a few bars, restaurants, and the Les Schwab tire dealership.”
Much has been made of the Eliot historic conservation district rezoning proposal. Most of residential Eliot is being down-zoned from R2 to R2.5 which is more reflective of what is currently on the ground and slightly limits what can be built after tearing down an existing house. (The corridors are mostly getting up-zoned slightly and a new mixed use zone instead of the RX or EX designation they had before.) See the Map App for detailed information.
“Just call me Darcelle,” says the new Guinness Book of World Records holder as we get started with our interview. Darcelle, born Walter Cole, has brought fame to our Eliot neighborhood and the city of Portland in the form of a world record for being the world’s oldest, still performing Drag Queen. However, before he was Darcelle XV, Cole was an entrepreneur. His business ventures survived urban renewal multiple times in rapidly changing city.
It all started at Cascade Head at the mouth of the Salmon River. It is quite tricky to get to the three rocks past the spit on the other side of the river, but this is where Kipp Baratoff and Duncan Berry were sitting in 2012 when they came up with the idea for their business venture. They were sitting on those rocks talking about the ocean, the fish and how sad they were with some of the complexities of the seafood industry. They wished the industry could connect better with consumers. There in the “original boardroom” the idea for Fishpeople was born to transform the consumer’s relationship with the sea.

52-Unit Apartment Building to Bring New Life on Monroe and MLK
Eliot is experiencing a sustained building boom that is slowly replacing housing that was lost by original residents, the majority being African Americans. With the new Cascadia campus on MLK and Monroe, the neighborhood has a chance to revitalize and provide some housing relief for families that have been forced to leave as the neighborhood transitioned.
