Prior Business

 

Church-House Property Located at 2646 / 2650 NE 102nd

Pete drafted a letter to City Commissioner Randy Leonard who oversees the Bureau of Development Services. When sent, it will be copied to Mayor Adams, the Fire Department, Willamette Week newspaper, and other concerned parties. The letter will note that the PHAN board’s goal is for the owners of the property to obtain a Conditional Use permit allowing the house to legitimately be used as a church meeting space.

 

Grants for NNO / Movie in the Park

Andi has applied for both grants. Further discussion will take place dependent on their approval.

Coffee Cart at Farmers’ Market – Jim / Stan Griffith

Jim and Stan presented a fundraising proposal for PHAN to operate a coffee cart at the Parkrose Farmers’ Market, which is open on weekends from 8am~3pm beginning the 1st Saturday in May through the last Sunday in October.
