A letter from Stephen Green, Portland Development Commission:
Dear Business & Property Owners,
The Portland Development Commission and the City of Portland recently amended the boundaries of the Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal Area (ICURA) to include 400 acres of commercial property in North and Northeast Portland. Three years in the making, and driven by local needs with the invaluable help of a Citizens Advisory Committee, the amendment now makes PDC resources available to businesses and property owners in the expanded area, which includes properties along Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Alberta and Killingsworth, Dekum, the south side of Lombard, and the St. Johns Town Center.
Of particular interest are job-generating investments that will help small businesses compete in today’s economic climate, and the redevelopment of properties owned by residents of long standing.
You are invited to join PDC staff at Classic Foods, 817 NE Madrona Street, on Wednesday, August 31, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm to hear from past recipients of PDC financing and assistance and learn more about the PDC programs and tools now available to businesses and property owners in the expanded ICURA.
