MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
Hello Theodor. There are Requests for Proposals for the area of Memorial Coliseum. I hope to be part of a group making a proposal for the outside of the building to make cob structures, water-savings swales, possibly some tensile fabric shelters and plantings of useful flora. Our intent is to make the area attractive, in line with the Blazers idea of memorializing Jumptown, a jazz area which was leveled to build the Coliseum and to showcase Oregon plants and crafts. A proposal for inside is already on record: a market. The deadline has been moved out to January. You can find out about it by searching Jumptown Portland I think. Mary

government. Mark Lakemon, who began City Repair", has been addressing
this problem for quite a few years now. He actually came to our island,
Guemes several years back and gave a presentation which had an effect
Anyway, thank you for joining. We are hoping to have a festival up here
and maybe I can convince Mark to come up again. Portland is a ways,
but we are quite accessible by train and local bus. Of course, that is
if you are interested in any of this.
