No report was available.
Adjacent neighbors attended to provide updates regarding activity taking place at this property. An article written by Beth Slovic concerning Portland’s Bureau of Development Services (BDS) and the “house-church” aspect of the property will be appearing in the August 18, 2010 issue of Willamette Week. Those present at this evening’s meeting agreed that if the property is to continue functioning as a “house-church,” it may need a conditional-use permit and it must be brought into code compliance for things such as fire sprinklers and structural requirements for 80+ people in the 2nd floor meeting room at one time, handicap access requirements, adequate parking for large numbers of people, safe traffic patterns, preservation of old-growth sequoias, etc. Due to lack of a voting quorum, no official action was taken by the board at this time.
The event took place on August 3rd as scheduled with a great turn-out. Follow-up report by Stephanie and Eric was tabled until the September board meeting.
Respectfully submitted by: Becky Hartsfield, PHAN Recording Secretary
