MESSAGE FROM FRIENDS OF SELLWOOD COMMUNITY CENTERSellwood Community Center has again been slated for closure by PP&R (as well as Hillside, Fulton Park, and Laurelhurst and about a 10% PPR staff layoff). Though this threat has come up many times, this time is much more dire in light of the $6M Parks deficit. Friends of Sellwood Community Center is asking for any any all community help over the coming weeks to mobilize and stand up for our Community Center. Options for anyone who'd like to get involved include attending a FSLCC meeting Tuesdays @ 7PM at the CC or dropping an email to one or more of the following individuals:Mayor Wheeler (MayorWheeler@PortlandOregon.g
ov)Parks Director Adena Long (director.long@portlandoregon. gov)Commissioner Nick Fish (Nick@PortlandOregon.gov)Commissioner Amanda Fritz (Amanda@PortlandOregon.gov)Commissioner Chloe Eudaly (Chloe@PortlandOregon.gov)Commissioner JoAnn Hardesty (JoAnn@PortlandOregon.gov)We are especially looking for folks willing to attend the Townhall Budget Forum on TUESDAY APRIL 2nd 6:30-8:30 at IRCO Main Office – Gym, 10301 NE Glisan Street. This is the ONLY SCHEDULED opportunity for public comment. Public comment will be done by lottery, so please grab a lottery ticket (available starting at 5:30) even if you do not want to speak--if we pool our numbers we have a better chance of getting our spokespeople called. Feel free to join the FB group Save Our Centers PDX to stay involved or reach out to us on email FriendsofSellwoodCC@ gmail.com.
