SJNA Pod Community Info Panel – Friday 11/2/18

For folks who haven’t heard yet, on Wednesday, a Willamette Week article confirmed that the City of Portland has decided to bring a pod community to St. Johns in an effort to address the ongoing houselessness crisis impacting our entire city.

In line with SJNA’s mission to provide a forum for community discussion, SJNA is bringing a panel of people together who are a part of this project so that we, the community, may hear and learn about this… direct from the source.

SJNA wants to include your voice. Click the link below to submit your feedback. As your panel moderator, I’ll bring your concerns to the panel next Friday.

Be there Friday November 2nd at 7pm at the St. Johns Community Center at 8427 N Central to learn what is really going on and how we can all be a part of this new upcoming project.

    This is proposed to be run by the same folks who run the Kenton Women’s Camp, which is quite successful and well integrated into the community. The lot is down well towards the river much closer to truck terminals than to schools or Pier Park. Fear-mongering is not helpful. This seems like an excellent idea to me.

    This is why a red wave you will see.
    You people are delusional.
    Such as the person above who states it isn’t close to Pier Park or schools. If fear-mongering isn’t helpful what is blatantly misstating information? It is very close to Pier Park (1,000-3,000ft depending on where in the very large park). Across the street from Harvest Homes (less than 500ft) which has a preschool inside. And another elementary school Sitton (2,000ft away). Even logistics makes this a horrible location. At the very end of an area which would filter activity in only one direction, towards downtown St. Johns. The location is not anymore near the river than all of one side of Lombard, whatever that even means being near the river. Now I could go on and I realize this will mostly fall on deaf ears, with only a few people speaking out and the others just putting a thumbs up or heart emoji. Most are scared to speak out. Go ahead and keep moving these people around and ignoring the real issues causing these symptoms, like the ‘money’ we all use, soon enough we can all join them. To just peddle misleading statements and call others fear mongering will get us nowhere.
