The Piedmont Neighborhood Association will hold it’s quarterly January meeting this Thursday, January 30th at 7pm. The meeting will be held at the June Key Delta Community Center (5940 North Albina St. – just south of Peninsula Park).

Hear are a few of the featured topics:

  • Steve Buel, Piedmont Neighborhood’s elected member of the Portland Board of Education, will be present to talk about his work on the board, his views on education and anything else he’s inspired to address. He has been an active voice via editorials in The Oregonian and Willamette Week, and on his Facebook page. Expect him to provide a candid update on the negotiations between Portland Public Schools and the Portland Association of Teachers.  We are allotting 15-20 minutes specifically for Q&A follow-up.
  • Jim Bittner, of Cascade Radon,will present information about the radon issues we face here in Portland. Radon is one of the leading causes of lung cancer in the United States, and this presentation can help clarify how to test for radon in your home and, if present, options for removing it. Jim will share a short slideshow presentation, then answer questions from the audience.
