New Date: Thursday, March 22 at 6:30 PM
East End Community School
A special meeting for residents of the Munjoy Hill Community as well as the general public. In conjunction with the Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization to discuss possible options to address concerns about demolition and how to encourage new construction that enhances the characteristics of the neighborhood that draw people to Munjoy Hill.
Julie Larry, Directory of Advocacy, will give a brief presentation on Landmarks recent research and architectural survey. The presentation will include information on the Hill’s buildings and the stories of some of the people that have called Munjoy Hill home over the last century and a half.
Landmarks also will present information on the potential for historic designation of buildings on Munjoy Hill and how designation is one of several planning tools that could address some of the neighborhood concerns that led to the current moratorium. Spurred by several recent demolitions, a number of residents have expressed concern about the loss of neighborhood character and new construction that does not relate well to the context of the neighborhood.
Following the presentation there will be time for an open discussion and opportunities for attendees to share their opinion in smaller groups or individually. We want to hear input from many voices and encourage you to share your vision or concerns about the future of Munjoy Hill.
Landmarks has prepared information on the history of Munjoy Hill as a resource for the community to learn about the historic buildings that survive in the neighborhood, and help explore ideas to manage change as development pressure increases on Portland's penninsula.
This meeting will also serve as the quarterly meeting for members of the Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization.
