    - David Porter, Exec. Dir. of the Leach Botanical Gardens located at SE 122nd Ave. and Foster spoke about the gardens are about to embark on new work and upgrading facilities. Also commented that the Gardens have many activities besides just visiting the garden and walking around.

    - Reason for being at the EPAP/CE meetingworking to connect with the community to hear ideas from the community about what the community wants. Working to put the word out to the community through newspaper distributions and community meeting input. Their goal is make the Garden a destination like the Japanese Garden.

    - EPAP/CE decided to put this item on the next meetings agenda to hopefully come up with some ideas to contribute; Garden will be accepting ideas April June 2015.

    3Civic Engagement Displacement Prevention Tools: What are Specific civic engagement tools that may be used to prevent displacement?

    - Galina Nekrasova had spoken with her community, representing the Slavic Community here in Portland/E. Portland. Galina brought up many good points that were issues her community expressed. These issues were not altogether seen as specific displacement causing issues or tools seen more as livability issues and tools.

    o Displacement being defined as one can no longer afford to live in a certain place.

    - Issues brought up:

  • 15

    o Work places are far away o Schools are not as good o Moms want to work, not enough child care o Desire good neighbors o Want to feel safe

    - Items brought up as tools o Community engagement/involvement o How to find work o How to work with the police

    lore mentioned there is actually a meeting being organized by David Douglas, taking place Wed. Feb. 11th, 9-10:30am

    meeting is inviting all pastors in E. PDX o Galina feels not all pastors especially

    within the Slavic Community will meet with each other. Maybe will meet with all communities of faith

    Crime prevention Religious support Neighborhood watch

    - Other items discussed o A land trust could be seen as a displacement tool

    One could own equity in their house but not own the property

    This enables selling prices for the next home buyer to be affordable

    o Civic Engagement Grants could be seen as a tool Could help communities hold meetings/events to become

    better informed of civic engagement; overall possibility to strengthen communities

  • 16

    o Information from organizations such as Community Tenants Alliance They can provide information to renters about rights and

    resources o Supporting Transit Oriented Development housing

    - Suggested to continue movie in the park o Further investigation needed as to how this can be support

    financially For example, instead of 15 movies, provide 10 and make

    more money available per movie - Bring back E. PDX Expo event

    o Mark White was the founder and coordinator of this event for 3 years

    o The model of this event was not sustainable Committee discussed ideas on how to bring this back

    8Finalize the meaning of word cultural for Civic Engagement Grant. Establish new language for the EPAP Civic Engagement Grant that better represents what Civic Engagement Subcommittee intends by culture. Patrik suggested that we change to racially/ethnically/linguistically marginalized communities.

    - Not all words in Patriks suggestion were understood by everyone - Suggestions:

    o keeping racially/ethnically o adding language specifics o adding not normally included

    Additional discussion:

    - Grant review committee asked why there were so few grants this year - Recommend receiving more feedback especially in regards to

    language needs - Comments regarding too many criteria in grant guidelines

    o Additionally, have criteria be listed with individual questions criteria pertains to vs. applicant having to flip back and forth from questions page to criteria page

    - CE needs to decide if they want to make changes for next years grant application

    - Otros temas mencionados

  • 20

    o Se podra considerar un fideicomiso de tierras como una herramienta anti desplazamiento Uno podra tener el valor lquido de su casa pero no ser

    dueo de la propiedad Esto facilita que el precio de venta para el prximo

    comprador sea asequible o Las Becas de participacin cvica podran ser consideradas

    como una herramienta Podran ayudar a las comunidades a llevar a cabo

    reuniones/eventos para informarse an ms sobre la participacin cvica; [conllevan] la posibilidad general de fortalecer comunidades

Dave thinks that the City of Portland Bureau of Transportation will likely contract out a lot of the work scheduled for the East Portland In Motion implementation, because theyre behind on EP projects, and City Agencies dont want to expand staffing they cannot sustain.

    January 14, 2015 1:002:30 p.m. David Douglas Board Room EPAP Education Committee Minutes: Members Present Helen Ying Don Grotting Lore Wintergreen Michael Cummings Adrianna Larraga Krista Dennis Jill Weir Carol Fenstermacher Introductions of members and revisited purpose of committee. Lore provided minutes and information regarding goals of committee. Carol Facilitated and Don took notes. Both Jill and Helen offered to do notes in the future, if we bring a laptop. Don Grotting discussed upcoming Faith Based event taking place at David Douglas on February 11, from 9 to 10:30. Reviewed purpose of faith-based partnerships, separation of church and state and how organizations could partner to serve children and families. Jill suggested possibly inviting SUN coordinators to meeting as well as Hands On Coordination individual as this organization has experience in pairing organizations. Parent Involvement Advocacy The work of Bill Baney was suggested for consideration. Helen suggested that we focus on what is the desired outcome of parent involvement student success. Approaches and abilities can often be culturally based. Without the ability to communicate basic information to parents in their own language, parent involvement cannot happen. Adrianna spoke of her experience seeing parents get excited when they received information in a language they could understand. Michael suggested that we focus on what we can do and develop specific achievable outcomes. Carol suggested that we need an agreed upon definition of what parent engagement means to everyone.

  • 34

    It was decided to apply for an East Portland Action Plan Municipal Partnership Project focused on translation services of essential documents for David Douglas, Centennial, Parkrose, and Reynolds school districts. Don Grotting will take the lead to construct a project. The Municipal Partnership Project application is due January 19th, with a verbal report to the general EPAP on January 28th. The Project would provide each district the opportunity to translate select documents in their most significant languages. Krista and Adrianna agreed to be co-sponsors as regularly attending general EPAP meeting members. Lore suggested that Frieda also sponsor the Project. Don will contact each school district superintendant to verify their commitment to the project. Don will also utilize his contact with the University of Portland to do research work with this group to define parent involvement and family engagement and achievable outcomes. He will invite them to our next meeting. Carol suggested having the U of P doctoral students do cross-district leadership training for parents to build leadership in the future. The committee thought this was a good idea. Next months agenda will focus on this discussion and review of the submitted Municipal Partnership Project. Lore will bring lunch since it will be a big meeting day for the group members who are attending the DDSD communities of faith meeting. The meeting adjourned at 2:30

    Grants Committee Meeting January 15, 2015 5:00-6:00pm

    Notes

    1) Discussion on the intent of culturally specific grants. Are they restricted to ethnic/language-specific cultures only? The Civic Engagement Committee refined the language for CE Grants to be intended for racially/ethnically/linguistically marginalized communities. Committee accepted this language as appropriate. 2) What are the reasons behind the lack of grant applications? What can be done to change this? Discussion points were that some may find the application difficult to understand while the information on what they need to submit is there, it may not be as easy to find it as it could be. Concern was also raised that that some groups are declining to participate, as the committee has evolved a more stringent evaluation process over time. For many groups, the general attitude is that the money awarded is not worth the effort. Action item: Committee members will review the application and suggest changes via email process. In addition, a new place on the application for groups to leave feedback will be incorporated. 3) What can we do to streamline the application process? In addition to potential application changes, there was broad agreement that fewer criteria should be used for scoring. 4) How can committee members further our own cultural competency

  • 36

    and racial equity lens? A discussion was held regarding what types of activities committee members can take to enhance our individual cultural competency. Members were in broad agreement that some level of training would be welcomed. Action item: Members will in the future strive to attend grantee workshops/celebrations and also would welcome training before picking up their next grant packets training that potentially could be given by some of our current/past grantees. 5) Request for new Grants Chairperson At this point, no one has yet stepped up to be the new chairperson. The current need is for someone to report on committee activities at the January EPAP general meeting.

    EPAP Housing Sub-committee Meeting East Portland Neighborhood Office

    Meeting Notes

    The Goal of the Housing Sub-Committee is: To find common ground in supporting a range of housing types in East Portland as a means to strengthening livable communities, encouraging healthy, complete, and stable neighborhoods, and promoting family wage jobs. A range of housing types is meant to include rental housing and home ownership as well as housing for people at various income levels. The Purpose of the Housing Sub-Committee: The purpose of the EPAP Housing Subcommittee is to agree upon productive strategies for housing and to prioritize action items involving housing for East Portland. These strategies and action items might include (but not be limited to): encouraging housing for people in a range of income levels---including affordable housing for low-income people, promoting high quality housing development and construction standards, and encouraging property rehabilitation as well as new construction. The EPAP Housing Sub-Committee will work with a lens of preventing displacement and gentrification, protecting tenants rights, promoting enhanced housing inspection enforcement, supporting local schools, encouraging job creation and economic development, and strengthening neighborhoods. The EPAP Housing Subcommittee will strive to promote, for all East Portland residents, quality housing by design which in turn promotes stronger educational systems; an increase in living wages jobs, greater economic opportunity, stronger educational systems, enhanced transportation, and healthy neighborhoods throughout East Portland. ===============================================================

    December 8, 2014 Housing Sub-committee Meeting Meeting began at 6:05 pm Attendees Frieda Christopher, Nick Sauvie, Lore Wintergreen, Chris Scarzello, Leah Grey, David Hampsten, Isidro Reyes, Vivian Satterfield, Sasha Davis, and Jean DeMaster. Betty Dominguez was excused. Welcome and Introductions: Jean welcomed everyone and each attendee introduced themselves. Minutes: The November minutes were reviewed and edits were made. The minutes were approved as presented. There was discussion to go to an 8pm stop time. After a discussion, it was decided to keep ending time to 7:30 and try not to go over. Follow up with Comp map. Chris Scarzello sated they were looking at downzoning in some of EP. She said there were requests for down zoning in Eastmoreland area. to keep out density, yet they have the most amenities. Chris showed the citywide maps that show that there is more multifamily housing zoned in EP than other parts of city. Lore mentioned there are suppose to be quadrant plans. Chris was not aware of Quadrant Plans. She said we should pay attention to the Mixed- Use Plan. Jean clarified that the message we want Chris to bring forth was that commercial property is at least 20-30% commercial and that for housing that it meet residential standards such as face the street and have sidewalks. Chris will not be at the next meeting but will ask Uma to come and Jean said we should bring computers to add info to the map app. Would a separate endorsement of Welcome Home be helpful or is the EPAP General Meeting Endorsement just fine: Nick said he had enough with EPAP endorsement Announcement of the Legislative Workshop: There is a workshop for education on Dec 15 at 6-8pm. Lore said they may not take input on the citys agenda.

  • 41

    Response to the Comp Plan from the EPAP Jean said no one sent in comments so the letter will go as written. Strategies to avoid displacement: Linkage Fees: Nick said that thisis similar to Systems Development Charges (SDC) fees and they are charged on all kinds of development. Nick feels it would be one of the most powerful tools. (+3) Anti-speculation or real estate transfer tax: Nick explained that this is when any real estate is sold a fee is collected and could be dedicated to affordable housing. It discourages flipping of property. Downside is it is the tax is illegal in Oregon. (+2) Tax increment financing: Nick references this as a financing tool for urban renewal. This has been done in Portland and it has caused displacement due to not enforcing the requirements for affordable housing in the Urban Renewal Areas (URAs). (-3) (David feels it would be +2 and could still be a useful tool.) Chris said the law should be changed to allow for investment from one URA to a non-contiguous area. Homeowner/home buyer programs: Leah said that there are limited programs and some are geared to families in the system and most have long waiting lists. Proud Ground has one of the best programs. They keep the house as affordable. Habitat for Humanity is a good program. One of the problem is there it is not clearly published where to go for information. (+3) Mandatory Inclusionary Zoning Leah said from her research OR law may violate the Federal Statute. Jean said they dont have enough incentives, but Nick said that incentives are used with voluntary inclusionary zoning. This is mandatory inclusionary zoning. (+2) Frieda reported on:

  • 42

    Owner-Occupancy Ordinance: The ordinance is used to maintain affordable home ownership and reduce speculation by investors. This is often coupled with inclusionary zoning, but does not need to be. The ordinance is used to ensure that affordable residential units would be maintained as ownership opportunities. If a community is interested in deterring speculation and maintaining a local workforce, it should consider an owner-occupancy component with any affordable housing requirement (Foster 2011). Even in cities without inclusionary zoning, owner-occupancy restrictions can help preserve housing for homeowners. For example, they could be applied to other affordable housing programs or subsidies. (???#) Condominium Conversion Ordinance: There are laws around condominium conversions, but a conversion of rental apartments to a condominium typically requires about 120 days notice to the tenants with a right of first refusal to purchase their units during that time. In Portland, City Ordinance #150739 requires that developers pay for the moving expenses of low-income tenants though it is not clear that it is enforced. (+2) Condominium conversion ordinances can also include the following:

    a cap on the number of condominium conversions that can take place during a year

    approval by the local planning commission or city council; and payment of a housing mitigation fee to the citys housing

    trust fund to offset the im-pact of the tenants being displaced.

    Jean feels this needs to be coupled with Just Cause eviction Convert or Preserve Units as Affordable Housing: This includes tools that preserve existing affordable housing units or take other units out of the market and convert them into affordable housing This does not add to the overall housing stock as do the tools. There are multiple methods to preserve units such as: Affordable Housing Preservation Ordinance: Owners of affordable housing projects are required to give a city and tenants notice of any plans to sell the project or make it no longer

  • 43

    affordable. The city is then given the opportunity to buy the property. Portland has a current policy which includes: (???#)

    It is the policy of the City of Portland that publicly assisted rental housing affordable to low and moderate income persons and households should be preserved as a long-term resource to the maximum extent practicable, and that tenants of such properties should receive protections to facilitate securing new housing should the affordable units be converted to market rate units or otherwise be lost as a resource for low and moderate income housing.

    Affordable Housing Replacement Ordinances: Affordable housing replacement ordinances require a developer whose actions result in the loss of affordable housingthrough demolition or condominium conversionsto replace all or a percentage of the affordable units lost. The ordinances can require the units to be re-placed onsite or offsite, or can permit an in-lieu-of payment into a housing trust fund to be used for housing preservation projects.99 Replacement ordinances can further replacement of affordable housing or discourage inappropriate demolitions or conversions, but, if not crafted appropriately, may also act to discourage needed investment in upgrading or re-placing the local housing stock. City could enact themselves and it could be a good tool. (+3)

    We will continue with the reports next month.

    Jean said Traci will have answer to question by January. Jean will check into Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) sending a representative to our meetings.

    Jean suggested people go to the PHB meeting In Gresham on December 11th 6pm Annual Community Need Meeting.

    On Feb 5th at first Unitarian Church to have a panel to be part of a forum at noon. Jean thinks they will be more interested in the displacement tools. Jean, Frieda, Nick and possibly Justin or Isidro will represent the Housing Sub-Committee.

    Next meeting: at January 12, 2015 at 6 pm at EPNO.

    Meeting adjourned at 7:45pm.

A range of housing types is meant to include rental housing and home ownership as well as housing for people at various income levels.

The EPAP Housing Subcommittee will strive to promote, for all East Portland residents, quality housing by design which in turn promotes stronger educational systems; an increase in living wages jobs, greater economic opportunity, stronger educational systems, enhanced transportation, and healthy neighborhoods throughout East Portland. Housing Sub-Committee Recommendations:

    1. The Housing sub-committee supports mixed-use and commercial zoning in commercial corridors in East Portland. This would promote greater economic development, prosperity, and encourage mixed-income housing development. (CM 1.1)

    2. The Housing sub-committee supports single-family housing adjacent to commercial corridors to promote general homeownership, especially minority homeownership, as well as mixed-income and more innovative housing. (CM 1.1)

    3. The Housing Sub-committee sees the need for increase in amenities, jobs, infrastructure and public transportation in East Portland to support housing of people in all income levels and to attract more middle and upper income housing.

    4. The Housing Sub-committee would recommend prioritizing voluntary Inclusionary Zoning in middle income neighborhoods as one tool to promote mixed-income neighborhoods throughout Portland and to advocate for the City of Portland, Multnomah County and METRO to develop a pilot project for voluntary Inclusionary Zoning within the City/County.

    5. The Housing Sub-committee would recommend advocating ending discrimination based on having a Section 8 Certificate, so low income families would have a greater choice on where they could live. The committee supports changing the law at the state level to remove this discrimination.

    6. The Housing Sub-committee, after exhaustive research, recognizes that East Portland does not have significantly more tax-exempt housing properties than any other area of Portland, either in numbers or as a fair-share. East Portland does have significantly more affordable by accident housing than other parts of the City, but this has nothing to do with properties being tax-exempt or not.

    January 13, 2015 Housing Sub-committee Meeting Meeting began at 4:00 pm Attendees Frieda Christopher, Nick Sauvie, Lore Wintergreen, Leah Grey, Isidro Reyes, Roger Meyer, and Jean DeMaster. Betty Dominguez, Lore Wintergreen and David Hampsten were excused. Welcome and Introductions: Jean welcomed everyone and each attendee introduced themselves. Minutes: The December minutes were reviewed were approved as presented. It was clarified that the two tools were not rated: Owner Occupancy Ordinance and Affordable Housing Preservation Ordinance. Traci Manning, Director, Portland Housing Bureau, response to the EPAP questions: Jean reported that she had received Tracis response recently---and distributed it to those present at the meeting. Jean asked that all review it on their own time and it will be discussed next meeting. Jean will send out to email list. Proposed Letter to PHB from Nick Sauvie: Nick said there was a set time to give comments on PHBs community needs assessment. The letter which he drafted was distributed to the group. He explained his letter and the final paragraph included a request for a PHB representative attending the Housing committees meetings. Jean asked: should we be asking for budget items in the FY 15/16 budget. Nick said no-- from what he understands that is closed. Jean asked if we should we put some specifics to the PHB Investment in East Portland section. Roger asked could we put respectful language to stop the way they have been fundingi.e. not funding East Portland. Leah wanted more action language in the letter. Frieda suggested that the sentence in the last paragraph regarding the PHB representative was something Traci Manning had already said PHB would do. It was decided to change the request to include a request to have the PHB representative attend the EPAP Housing Subcommittee starting in Marcy 2015 or earlier. There was a consensus to make the changes (see attached edited letter) and Jean and Frieda would

  • 49

    sign. It was also a consensus to present the letter to the full EPAP for endorsement. . Oregon Opportunity Network (OON) Presentation: Jean explained that the OON Forum is scheduled for February 5th at noonat the First Unitarian Church in downtown Portland. Jean, Frieda, Nick and Justin will be presenting. Jean asked what issues people wanted to present. Nick suggested that we provide info on tax inequity, the city budget mapping, and anti displacement. There was a discussion of what the group would want to hear and how the presentation should be structured. It was decided to break down the presentation as follows:

    Frieda would do an introduction giving a background on EPAP and the Housing sub-committee and she would present the information on the tax abated property issue.

    Nick will take on the tax inequity. Justin could do inclusionary zoning since CAT is working on the

    issue. Jean will do displacement and tools to avoid displacement.

    Jean said she thought that we could ask Lore to put together a packet of information to go with the presentation. If there was information that each of the presenters wanted to have in the packet, they need to get it to Lore. Nick suggested in the background/introduction we need to discuss the rezoning in the 90s. Also we can mention that we promoted budget mapping and that it shows that East Portland is lower for service than other areas of the City. Frieda suggested that each presenter should have7-10 minutes and the rest to any questions. Everyone agreed. Zoning Changes: Jean announced that due to the change in the meeting date, neither Uma nor Bob could attend the meeting. Tax Equity Issues: Nick reported that he hadnt heard back on the Multnomah County representative meeting. Jean asked if we could expect more from our legislators this session since Alyssa Keny Guyer and Carla Piluso are on the Housing Sub-committee and would review the issue. Frieda asked if the proposal to reset taxes at re-sale of a property would bring taxes down. Nick explained the changes that need to be done to do that. It was

  • 50

    discussed what our focus should be in regard to the tax equity issue. Nick said there were 2 solutions (1) educate the public; or (2) see if there were allies to work with to make a change at the state level. Jean suggested Oregon ON that might work with it. Jean asked should we identify allies or educate the public. Leah said identifying allies would be best. After some discussion it was decided the next step would be to bring it up at the OON Forum and ask if it can be brought up at the state-wide OON meeting. Leah announced on January 22 & 24th the legislators will be at Rosewood Initiative to discuss housing issues and it was a place we could bring up the equity issue. Most felt the meetings would be more for renters and that tax inequity would not be a high priority with them. Strategies to avoid displacement: Leah handed out information she summarized from a CAT meeting she attended. She wanted to share the information with us since it also touched on displacement. Tax reactivation program: Leah said she has not found anything about this program. Isidro said Justin or he will make sure city owned land, land banking, community land trust information was provided at the next meeting. Jean discussed what we still need to work on and research. Frieda said tools with theYES under the Housing comments should be looked at. Nick explained location-efficient mortgages and it was suggested fit wouldnt help displacement (-1). Jean went down the list and the assignments for next meetings were as follows:

    Frieda will take Lease-Purchase Ownership. Nick will explain non-profit vs profit ownership. Leah will due tax reactivation program. Nick explained the Tenant Opportunity Purchase Act and that it is

    used with Manufactured Homes now. Leah will check it out. Leah will do Cooperative ownership models & limited equity housing

    cooperatives, Nick will do CDCs,

  • 51

    Jean will research the Community Reinvestment Act, Expiring use, Retention of subsidized housing, and housing trust fund.

    Next month, the committee will discuss the assigned tools and then review all the rankings. We will also look at which tools need to be used with others. Frieda will put them in rank order. It was decided Affordable Housing Development 101 was being done by organizations and was not something we needed to look at.

    Next meeting: at February 9, 2015 at 6 pm at EPNO.

    Meeting adjourned at 5:39pm.

    DRAFT January 8, 2015 Traci Manning Portland Housing Bureau 421 SW Sixth Avenue #500 Portland, OR 97204 RE: East Portland Community Housing Needs Dear Ms. Manning, The East Portland Action Plan (EPAP) was created by the City of Portland to improve the livability of East Portland neighborhoods. The EPAP Housing Subcommittee would like you to take greater consideration the housing needs of East Portland. We are particularly concerned about two matters: declining PHB investment in East Portland and so called opportunity mapping. PHB Investment in East Portland EPAP has used the citys budget mapping data to track expenditures from six key bureaus. For the last three years PHB investment in East Portland has declined from $15 million to $13.9 million. PHB is the only bureau that is spending less here since the beginning of budget mapping. Considering spending on a per capita basis, PHBs performance is the worst of any bureau. Opportunity Mapping Instead of using budget mapping to redirect funding to East Portland, PHB has chosen to use opportunity mapping to further disadvantage our neighborhoods. PHB has chosen to allocate $1 million in FY2015 to opportunity areas and proposes allocating $5 million in FY2016. The city has rightfully found $20 million to address displacement in North/Northeast Portland; EPAP believes that a similar investment should be made to address the critical housing problems in East Portland such as derelict housing, foreclosures and homelessness. The EPAP Housing Subcommittee would like to continue to dialog with PHB toward reaching common ground. To that end, we request that PHB designate a representative to attend our meetings. We would also like PHB to use the Office of Equity and Human Rights Budget Equity Tool to assess policies such as opportunity mapping. Sincerely,

    6. The Criteria sheets are for your information, they will not be collected. At the end of the meeting, those of you who have signed EPAP Participating Agreements form and have been regularly attending the general EPAP meeting will be given $78,250 in play money to spend on the projects you think most deserve EPAPs support. You can NOT give any project more than they requested.

    7. Those who have not regularly attended the general EPAP meeting, or signed a Participating Agreement form are encouraged to actively listen to the presentations and fill-out the Criteria forms, but will not be given money to spend at the end of the meeting.

    Roleplay/PLAYlet (Mike + lore):

    Mike, I encourage you to have fun with this. I imagine you doing most of it as an internal conversation, but if you want to include me as answering a questions juts say my name and I will speak-up. Just bring up things that might occur to folks, for examplebut not limited to:

    1. What does criteria mean anyway?

    2. How many points am I supposed to give if I think it will make a difference, but dont think it will make that big a difference?

    3. What if I dont really think it will prevent displacement and they are

    just saying things to get points? How many points should I give?

    4. How do I know if it effectively addresses any of the EPAP Strategic Priorities?

    5. Do I just believe them when they say they are going to address a

    specific Action Plan item or Strategic Priority?

    6. There is no way they are going to accomplish all that stuff with so little moneyOh, they have a lot of community partners, maybe thats how they are going to do it.

    7. These are all good projects, how do I decide which ones to fund?

    8. ????????????????????????????

    9. ????????????????????????????

    Developing Prosperity in East Portland: Narrative 1) East Portland is home to four grassroots organizations (NPIs) that strive to develop and promote strong relationships between local businesses, neighborhood groups, school districts, community residents, non-profit agencies, and other interested groups and individuals. These four groups are working together to continue the project, Developing Prosperity in East Portland, and have created work plans that promote growth, increase prosperity, encourage new development, and facilitate revitalization in each of these four districts. While the Division Midway Alliance (DMA), the Jade District (Jade), Historic Parkrose (HP), and the Rosewood Initiative (RI) work together effectively and are frequent collaborators; each group also serves a distinct area of East Portland. The four NPI areas are: SE Division between SE 117th and 148th; SE Division between SE 80th and the 205 freeway; NE Sandy between NE 98th and NE 121st; and SE Stark from SE 142nd to SE 162nd.

    There have been public safety issues in all four areas some of the areas have visibly underutilized or vacant properties, and some areas contain blight. Though these conditions can create challenges, each of the NPIs includes one or more local neighborhood associations and one or more district business associations, which share some of the same goals as the NPIs and contribute their resources towards advancing this community-focused work. a. Our project addresses a number of EPAP items. EPAP items: G, H, I, J & K - DMA is involved with all transportation agencies on Powell-Division high capacity projects and DM street connectivity. Jade is partnering with Metro on this effort too. HP is working with ODOT on improvements including a left turn lane at 105th Ave & NE Sandy. HP is also working with PBOT to install crosswalks at 106th & 107th Avenues. EPAP item: K HP is partnering with Tri Met to adopt all stops in the NPI district and install garbage cans and bus stops. These efforts are to improve ridership so more frequent bus service will be considered. EPAP items: L - All NPIs work to develop public spaces by hosting community activities. Jade is creating a large-scale community Night Market summer event. HP hosts a big annual street fair and two night vendor markets. DMA has a large Fall Festival bringing neighbors together, and RI host ongoing events in their community space as well as large annual activities. EPAP items: M and N All NPIs are building strong relationships between residents, business owners and community non-profits through committees: HPs Clean & Safe group is developing skills of residents to form Neighborhood Watch and Foot Patrol programs. DMA does graffiti removal connecting neighbors and businesses. Jade partners with 1000 Friends to host land use leadership tours. RI offers trainings almost weekly to improve financial competency, tenant training,

    job skills etc. The NPIs are hosting a big job fair together and local career fairs. Each NPI markets and brands its district though these activities, and by installing identifying signs and banners. The NPI web presence is also strong, further promoting East Portland centers. b. The project, Developing Prosperity in East Portland, will continue to improve livability and prevent displacement in East Portland by promoting local businesses and by attracting and securing new businesses while also supporting local residents needs and desires for the community. Each of the NPIs is involving low-income residents in meetings, events, and decisions; their voices are being heard and their message is to not allow displacement to occur. c. The NPIs are working to promote higher incomes for the individuals and families currently living in these districts. Strategies involve direct one-on-one technical assistance in improving businesses, helping with employment searches, promoting local job listings and hosting job fairs. The goal is to help all individuals grow and prosper as well as the commercial centers. d. The EPAP 2014-15 Strategic Priorities that will be addressed are: G, I, J, K, L M and N. The NPIs continue to work in cooperation with East Portland residents, businesses, government bureaus - especially transportation agencies and the PDC. NPIs strengthen local commercial centers through development projects, promotions, targeting businesses that improve access to jobs and improving livability in the areas through clean ups and new business recruitment. e. Since its initial efforts in FY 2013-2014, Developing Prosperity in East Portland, promotes prosperity within, and beyond, each NPI area. This increased communication with business, property owners, residents and nontraditional communities, provides PDC with direct information on how to improve development in these areas. We have also greatly increased input on the Citys Comprehensive Plan, transportation development plans, ODOT, PBOT and Tri Mets ongoing projects. The NPI projects are also heavily promoted by both partners, which will reflect well on East Portland. 2) The NPIs work with PDC as their municipal partner. PDCs involvement will continue to support, encourage and facilitate the NPIs goals. Additionally, PDC matches our funding, allowing for one full time employee. PDC also provides mini Urban Renewal Area (URA) tax increment financing (TIF). As the NPIs grow and prosper, additional funding will become available for more infrastructure improvements providing real economic revitalization. If this EPAP application for continued support is successful, the $40,000 requested will be matched by PDC and will result in $80,000 in funding.

    3) The NPIs have already identified unique community partners. The NPIs include five business districts, all involved, and seven neighborhood associations with many participating members. The areas also include three school districts, Portland Public School, Parkrose and David Douglas. Nonprofits such as Human Solutions and IRCO also remain active in the groups efforts. Other community partners focused on building community through economic development include Venture Portland and the East Portland Chamber of Commerce. 4) The funding provided by EPAP will be doubled by the PDCs matching funds with most of the funds being utilized for staffing within each area. a. The majority of the funding ($28,000) will be used for payroll costs salaries, benefits, employer taxes, etc.; $6,000 will be used for printing, materials, and advertising; $4,000 will be used for event expenses; and the final $2,000 will cover administrative expenses for accounting and payroll functions. b. The funds will have more impact as they are leveraged by each of the four groups. Each group also contributes a wide variety of donated resources as shown on the budget page. Between the four groups, over $156,000 in gifts, grants, and funds have been raised which will be used as leverage. Just the value of donated time (more than 2200 hours, at $18/hour), plus printing and office space is over $86,000. 5) Each of NPIs will promote the unique features of its district while also emphasizing collective involvement in EPAP and the City of Portland as a whole. The NPIs will reach out to hundreds of neighborhood businesses, groups, and individuals in telling our story. We will emphasize the valuable contribution that EPAP and the City have made toward East Portlands growth. The potential gift would be recognized at all events, in written materials, and in verbal presentations.

    Narrative 2.) Describe your project

    A partnership is proposed between Portland Parks and Recreation (PPR), the Metropolitan Alliance for Workforce Equity (MAWE), Human Solutions and ROSE Community Development to obtain jobs for East Portland residents in the construction of Beech and Gateway Parks. PPR and MAWE have been working together to promote participation by East Portland residents in these construction projects as a way to create economic opportunities for low-income residents and people of color who live near the park sites. PPR has agreed to a Community Benefits Plan that includes a 25% local hiring goal for the two projects along with goals for participation by disadvantaged businesses owned by minorities and women. This proposal would fund : 1) Outreach and screening of construction workers by Human Solutions workforce program; 2) Coordination of MAWE construction, labor, workforce and community-based organizations that will support East Portland construction projects by Worksystems, Inc./Emerald Cities; and 3) Participation in the project oversight committee by ROSE. MAWE advocated for and managed a Community Benefits Agreement with the City of Portland for two Water Bureau Construction projects. Thanks to the partnership with MAWE, those projects have achieved excellent results in equitable contracting and workforce diversity. For the Interstate facility, 38% of the total contract more than $10 million went to Disadvantaged/ Minority/Women/ Emerging Small Businesses. Of apprentices, 41% were minorities and 32% were women. This project is proposed to build capacity to meet the East Portland local hiring goal and begin to develop a workforce system to identify residents interested in construction jobs, train them and place them in living wage employment. We hope that a successful partnership with PPR will lead to community benefits agreements for future parks projects and potentially other large East Portland public works projects such as Division/Powell Bus Rapid Transit. Community benefits agreements may also be sought from developers of private projects as part of EPAPs anti-displacement strategy.

    3.) Identify Municipal partner and describe the role this partner will play.

    Portland Parks and Recreation is the project manager for the Beech and Gateway Park construction projects. They will be the main contact with the project general contractors, architects and other professionals. PPR will be the fiscal sponsor for this proposal.

    3.) Identify community organization partners involved in

    this project and describe their anticipated role(s). Human Solutions will lead outreach and education activities with East Portland community members, businesses and organizations; identify potential workers and local companies for Beech & Gateway Parks projects; screen and refer potential workers to pre-apprenticeship training providers, apprenticeship programs and contractors; monitor, verify and report to partners on hiring of local residents and contracting to local businesses; and provide regular reports to the oversight committee to support PPR in achieving the goals of the Beech and Gateway projects. Emerald Cities Portland will coordinate MAWE partner technical support, education and oversight activities related to construction, labor, contracting and workforce on the East Portland projects. This support includes: helping to develop a local hire implementation plan; monitoring and oversight support; strategies and tools to achieve goals (including East Portland local hire); outreach and education about construction opportunities; and resources for workers and businesses; and provide support to help achieve the goals of the Beech and Gateway projects. ROSE will participate in the project oversight committee, as well as acting as liaison between MAWE and EPAP.

    4.) Describe how the budget supports the project described above.

    The personnel budget includes $10,920 to Human Solutions (estimated at 336 hours x $32.50 per hour); $5,040 to Emerald Cities (72 hours x $70 per hour) and $1,200 to ROSE (12 oversight meetings x $100). Emerald Cities and ROSE will contribute an estimated $4,900 in additional staff time to the project. EPAP funds will also be used for materials and printing ($500; we expect to get another $500 in donated materials) and participant support ($600 for oversight committee meeting costs; 12 meetings x $50). The bulk of leveraged funds for the project represent $120,000 that will be contributed by PPR towards outreach and training to East Portland, minority and women construction workers and technical assistance to neighborhood and disadvantaged small contracting businesses.

    5.) Describe the plan to promote your project, including

    acknowledgement of the East Portland Action Plan, City of Portland.

    The Beech and Gateway Park construction projects are going to be highly visible improvements to prominent locations in East Portland. The new parks have generated a great deal of excitement through citizen involvement in design and resource development. Portland Parks and Recreation is eager to promote the projects, both for fulfilling the need for parks in the most park-deficient part of the city and wise use of system development charges. The project will acknowledge the EPAP/City of Portland contribution through site signage, press releases, social media and partner websites, as well as through websites and other publicity of the project partn
