The KGW report summarizes information that is contained in the following post from our blog…http://blog.piedmontneighborhood.com/2008/04/olccwhat-hell-are-you-doing.html

Note that at the bottom of the above post there are links to previous posts on this subject.

KOIN also did a piece, but their angle was that we are oppressing the owner.

The OLCC hearing is scheduled for Friday, April 18th at 9am. The hearing will be located at 9079 SE McLoughlin Blvd., Room 103A, Portland, Oregon, 97222. You must show up at 9am and sign in with OLCC employee Carrie Korbe (she will be in the front lobby) if you wish to speak to the OLCC board. For those that will be speaking, the time allowed for this issue is during the “License Matters” portion of the agenda (not the “Public Forum”).

I strongly encourage everyone that has previously taken action on this issue to speak at this meeting. It is advisable to write down your comment so your message isn’t missed. After we have commented on the license, the OLCC board vote.

I have said this before, but I guess this is really it…the time for action is NOW.

  1. >Big shout out to neighbor Rae. Without her letter to the KGW and KOIN we wouldn’t have the media coverage we’ve had. THANK YOU RAE!!!!

  2. >Thank you to Rae. If you haven’t yet, you could also send letters via email to all the OLCC commissioners. Their email addresses are easily found.

  3. >@ SadieI don’t know if the OLCC would even acknowledge the receipt of the letters. They had a “Public Comment Period” which expired several weeks ago. At this point, our final course of action is to show up at the hearing and register to address the OLCC board.Really ridiculous that I have to take time off from work…without pay…to speak to a government body…that MY TAX DOLLARS PAY FOR…to convince them to they are being myopic.
