Here’s another cool animated image— this time to celebrate Pride— from Michael B.


Portland City Hall’s push for “safe resting camps” has raised a lot of questions. Commissioner Dan Ryan said neighborhood groups are onboard for the new service, but how will they look in practice?

And also: Where will they be located? Who will staff them? And my newest question: Is this just a reason to push unhoused folks out of downtown and into neighborhoods?

Willamette Week has done a good job tracking this issue, and their most recent story on the issue is here.

One important development: Ryan will be a guest at the Lents Neighborhood Livability Association meeting on June 10, so it’s likely more details will be shared then.

Lents farmers market opens

The Lents International Farmers Market opens this Sunday! It’s a great medium sized market with plenty of fresh goods and room to social distance.

If you missed our video from last year, Michael B can repeat the tour due to the magic of video. Farmers markets are a great way to support farmers, budding food entrepreneurs, and meet your neighbors.
