Abstract

"City" piece on the Midtown Community Policing Center in Portland, which could be forced to move out because the funding that pays the rent for the space it occupies will end on Feb. 28. The $1,250-a-month rent has been paid for since March 1999 by a grant from the Libra Foundation. According to city officials, the police department has enough money in its budget to pay for the space through August. But Deputy Police Chief William Ridge said it's unlikely the department will be able to afford the space after that. The department also has three other community centers located in the city's Munjoy Hill, Parkside and West End neighborhoods.
