Abstract

Portland mayor Tom Kane is proposing a land bank that would create an inventory of the city's undeveloped acreage, a list establishing which parcels are most important and a fund of about $200,000 to help the city maintain them. If the city had created such a program sooner, Kane said, it might have been able to save the land on which the U.S. Postal Service plans to build a new distribution center. Kane hopes the city council will approve such a plan sometime this spring.
