This weekend

Tonight (Thursday, November 29th) there’s a community meeting about a public health assessment from Precision Castparts Corporation.

Here‘s more information on the report about the toxic threat from the manufacturer, and a story from Pamplin Media about how neighbors question the validity of the report.

When it comes to supporting independent media, community media outlets like Open Signal and Metro East provide much to the Portland area including training, equipment, studio space, and an opportunity to broadcast on local cable stations.

A proposed regulation change could eliminate local oversight and funding for this community service. Until December 14th, the Federal Communications Commission is taking comment on the issue.

Portland City Council held a town hall on the Oregon 2019 legislative session. We have video of the meeting here, and Portland Mercury‘s reporting is here. Much of their story focuses on the plan to transfer 82nd Ave from state to city management.
