Helping Neighbors During COVID-19: Share Your Story!

The Rose City Park Neighborhood Association will be ​hosting a virtual general meeting on May 26th. We’d like to identify RCP residents who are willing to participate in the online meeting by sharing a personal story about how neighbors are helping neighbors through this difficult time. We are also interested in hearing about what people are doing to help them cope during this difficult time.

This could be a story about making daily calls to socialize, virtual games, finding ways to help with grocery deliveries, yard work, gardening, or simply stepping outside to chat with others. Perhaps you are leading a sidewalk exercise group! We’d like to hear your story, even if you have posted something already; it just might inspire others.

If you are interested in participating​​; please email us by May 15th at: shareyourstory@rcpna.org.

Please include the following:
​Your first and last name
Contact number
Your Story: just a brief statement about how your are helping others or activities you are doing to help ​others cope through this difficult time
Any pictures or videos you may have related to your story that we can share with others
If sharing pictures with people other than yourself in them, please be sure you get their permission to share broadly via our board meeting
Keep in mind, to participate you will need internet access and a computer, tablet, or smart phone to attend the virtual meeting.

We look forward to hearing from you!

May 2020 Primary Election RCPNA Questionnaire and Candidate Answers

Candidate Answers Here

 

May 2, 2020

Subject: RCPNA City Council Candidate Questionnaire

Dear Portland City Council Candidate,

I hope this finds you healthy and safe during this crazy-making pandemic.  It has been unusual times for all of us including our Rose City Park Neighborhood Association. Typically, we hold an annual Candidates Fair in March to allow all of those running in our local races a chance to be heard. As you likely know, this had to be cancelled along with all public presentations with the exception of those through social distancing.

We are hoping it is not too late to address this lack of communication through a questionnaire developed by our RCPNA Board.

Please complete the following questionnaire and return your responses to me or to info@rcpna.org, ASAP.  The format may be in Word, JPEG, or HTML/email.

Your responses will be posted on our websites, RCPNA.org and Facebook, and electronic links provided to viewers on Nextdoor in the NE Portland area.

Please keep your total answers to 2-page maximum.

Name____________________________________________________

City Council Position________________________________________

  1. Why are you running for city council/mayor?
  2. What are your thoughts on claims that RIP will create affordable housing?
  3. Are you concerned that RIPs broad mandate for development could lead to possible unintended, but negative consequences?
  4. Rose City Park has more renters in single-family homes than apartments. As regards RIP, what can be done to minimize the effect on these renters who may be displaced due to homeowners selling their rentals to developers who will be building multi-family units?
  5. What can be done to keep the prices of single-family homes and duplexes (as contrasted with apartments) affordable to mid-range workers with families and retirees on fixed incomes?

Thank you so much for your consideration!!

Respectfully,

Tamara DeRidder, AICP

Chairwoman, RCPNA
