As you may know, the most recent Library Bond included a redesign of the Albina Library at 216 NE Knott St (property extends to Russell St). The Albina Library redesign process has been going on for over a year and their next meeting is September 8th at 6:00pm Zoom meeting (link).
You can see the slides they presented last Monday at the ENA Board meeting below.
PBOT Lloyd Event Parking District Presentation – Kathryn Doherty-Chapman
During games/concerts/big conventions – how can we encourage people not to park on the streets?
Lloyd focused but touches Eliot.
Once PBOT goes before City Council on this, they will seek to start the rate increase during events at $3/hr.
This rate will theoretically increase yearly as part of PBOT’s budget assuming capacity is being met.
PBOT is continuing to focus on the parking study in Northeast/Boise/Eliot over the coming years.
Equity: Transportation Wallet for Lloyd District residents.
Rate increase during games and events in the evening/some day time event
Annual rate changes based on data
LUTC agreeing to write a letter of support of the Lloyd Event Parking District Plan as long as it dovetails into productive results in the future with the North Portland Parking Management Plan. Eliot doesn’t want to get stuck with vehicles moving north to avoid the meters and no other benefit to the Eliot Neighborhood.

During the pandemic, I have been doing a lot of reading about the history of my neighborhood, Eliot. I came across a number of plans from the 1960’s and 1970’s that affected inner North Portland. Joseph Cortright put together a 3-part series on how the Oregon Department of Transportation destroyed Albina, the biggest cultural center for Black Portlanders at the time. At the same time, Emanuel Hospital was expanded intentionally into the area between N Williams and N Kerby all the way to I-5/I-405. This was presaged by a short study called the Central Albina Study which recommended most of what is now the Eliot Neighborhood be demolished for Industry. Warehouses were recommended west of MLK Jr Blvd and South of N Fremont. This was later amended to west of N Williams avenue.
In order to have more productive and transparent conversations with developers and the city, Eliot Neighborhood Association’s Land Use and Transportation Committee drafted the Development Feedback Framework.
For many years, The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has been planning to do a major widening of I-5 through the “Rose Quarter” (underneath the Flint, Broadway, Weidler, Williams, and Vancouver bridges). This project will be at least $800 Million and cause severe disruption to the southern Eliot Neighborhood if built. Recently,
The City of Portland initiated the Residential Infill Project (RIP) to enable the development of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and Air B-and-B type units on properties zoned “exclusively” for single-family homes. The logic was that this zoning was intentionally discriminatory. Although it does prevent the development of duplexes and other multi-unit buildings, it is arguable that it was specifically to discriminate against residents without the means to own or rent a single-family home on a single lot.
