Minutes from the most recent ANA Board Meeting

November 23, 2015 Alameda Neighborhood Association Meeting Minutes

Attending: Scott Rider, Mariah, Dave Johansen, Wendi, Charles, Gene (who was wearing long pants!), Jim

Kathy with the Hollywood Star News
Adam PSU Student, taking an ‘inclusive engagement’ class

(1) Duplex at 16th and Failing was built that does not appear to meet the intent of ‘compatible’ (33.110)

26th and Going has a duplex that “fits in perfectly”

Short discussion on who it is that approves a particular building, and by what criteria

Jim, Jim, and Dave will go see

Scott suggested we partner with Sabin, Jim will give it a try

(2) What would it take to make a Planned District.  Dave is looking into it
If the RIP (Residential Infill Project) works out well, there would be no need for a Planned District.

(3) Forward looking: Teal house on NE29th and Mason is falling apart.  Built in ~1908, designed by the woman who lived in it (I think).  It is falling into disrepair.

(4) Long term plan is for all the land around the airport to be developed, zoning was or is now compatible with commercial buildings.  Several other areas have been rezoned to allow development like the several blocks on Williams just south of Fremont.

Change to the 17 Bus Line- Proposed route change-
It used to go downtown, new route will go down 24th to SE
Marya will post something to the facebook page asking people to comment
