"Cover Story" piece on Portland's Waterfront Development and Master Plan Committ
"Cover Story" piece on Portland's Waterfront Development and Master Plan Committee, which is to include 26 people representing city, neighborhood, waterfront, and business interests. Portland Mayor Cheryl Leeman announced during her June 5 inaugural address that she is creating the committee and a subcommittee of the larger group called the Facility Building Committee. This smaller, eight-member committee made up of waterfront interests would be responsible for overseeing the design and construction of the new ferry terminal, funded through a $9 million state bond that was approved by voters last fall. It is this second committee that worries neighboring property owners because it will be controlled by the waterfront's primary commercial interests, many of whom stand to gain directly from its creation. With a brief history of Portland's Waterfront Committees One and Two, and what Three will look like.
