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.

On Wednesday, March 30th at 6pm, the City is hosting a public safety discussion at Matt Dishman Community center on NE Knott street. The public is invited to attend
Community Safety Listening & Strategy Session
The City of Portland’s Division of Community Safety and Commissioner JoAnn Hardesty’s Office are holding a Community Safety Listening & Strategy Session at Matt Dishman Community Center on Wednesday, March 30th.
The Eliot neighborhood, a vibrant area with a rich history, has suffered from the steep increase in gun violence in Portland over the last two years. Come share how you have been impacted by safety issues in your neighborhood and meet other neighbors looking for solutions.
What is Happening?
The Community Safety Listening & Strategy Session has three intended outcomes:
1. Assemble community members concerned about safety in the neighborhood
2. Build a shared understanding of problems impacting community safety, as well as a shared vision
3. Identify resources within the community to address problems and build toward the vision
The City of Portland recognizes that the Eliot neighborhood is of vital importance to Black Portlanders who formed a strong community here due to Portland’s racist red-lining policies in the early to mid-1900s. The City also recognizes that this community has experienced multiple layers of displacement and trauma due to policies that destroyed homes and caused rising property costs that forced residents out of the area. This event needs the perspective of long-standing Eliot residents who experienced these events, and the session will not be successful without your voice. AllEliot residents who want to build a safer community are welcome. Broad representation from a diverse group of residents, businesses, and other community organizations is essential to achieving this event’s intended outcomes.
Join us at Matt Dishman Community Center on Wednesday, March 30 from 6:00 p.m. -7:30 p.m.

Dear community member, The City of Portland’s Charter Commission has embarked on this once-in-a-decade opportunity to review and revise the City of Portland’s Charter (the City’s constitution) and recommend amendments for Portlanders to vote on.
Amendments to the City’s Charter can change City policies and processes that have the potential to respond to community priorities, shape our City, and address the most pressing issues facing our city. The Charter Commission is hosting virtual Community Listening Sessions in January— we hope you join us! Our Community Listening Sessions are part of a two-part series of listening sessions. The upcoming sessions are an opportunity for community members to learn from Commissioners about charter review, options of reform for our government and elections, and join small breakout rooms to have a discussion with Commissioners on these options! Community members are invited to attend either of the Part II Community Listening Sessions. The sessions will have the same content just offered on different days to accommodate more community member. Learn more about Charter and register here: Tinyurl.com/CharterListeningSessions Tuesday, January 11th from 6-8pm Saturday, January 22nd from 12-2pm. In November, the Charter Commission hosted part I of the Community Listening Sessions and participants learned about the charter review process and the issues currently being researched by the Charter Commission. Joining part I is not a requirement to join Part II. Watch the recording of Part I here! We hope you join us!

The summer heat brought some challenges to the Grove this year and many plants were defeated by the Heat Dome event. Our Oregon White Oak in the meadow gave up the ghost, but we were able to reserve another from Friends of Trees that we will plant sometime this fall. (The remains of the old oak are being transformed into a piece of art inspired by an epic dream in the hands of resident Healing Artist, Andrine de la Rocha.)
All of the remaining trees have survived so far and in their third year seem to be flourishing, despite the heat. Some of our less established shrubs did not fare as well and we will likely replace them during the wet season to give them a good head start on next year.
