The City of Portland is proposing to move the Right 2 Dream Too camp from Burnside to under the Broadway Bridge. We have provided links below to articles which summarize the story. Below those links is a letter opposing this proposal on the grounds that there has been no public process (deliberately, we learned) and the institutionalization of camping violates both the Portland Development Commission’s mission and several City and State codes and zoning laws. We encourage you to respond to this matter if you feel compelled, but remember that the issue is not about property values, it’s about the City’s violation of our trust and its own integrity.
