The Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association recently proposed that the neighborhood become a historic district, largely with the intention to prevent new residents and avoid density. This has been controversial amongst homeowners in the neighborhood, as well as other Portlanders. If you own property in Eastmoreland, there’s still time to complete a form objecting to the change.
In an effort to limit density and new development in the neighborhood, the Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association has proposed changing the classification of the neighborhood to a historic district. The proposal will be considered by the State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation in February 2017, and then by the National Park Service (NPS) in May 2017. Action by the National Park Service is expected by July 2017.
