UPDATE: the CHURCH still stands... KEEP THE CALLS COMING
Apr 15, 2015 — UPDATE: the CHURCH still stands, the structure is sound. i spoke with the developer. internal removal has begun, and will continue into tomorrow. not sure of the time remaining, but he has said it is never to late to sell. full demolition will most likely occur late WED or THURS.
still seeking benefactors/ community developers looking to create the community benefit organization imagined by all descendants touched by this church... CALLS TO ELECTEDS ARE WORKING. the internal conversation is being had, and WE MUST BE HEARD!
sincere gratitude to all who care and are moved to action, solidarity and community empowerment. this is a unique moment to form the kinds of collaborations, community benefit groups, and relationships needed to become stakeholders and agents of COMMUNITY CONSERVATION, RECLAMATION, RESTORATION and RECONSTRUCTION!
Take action NOW to stop the destruction of St. Paul’s Church, built in 1904!
Call Commissioner Amanda Fritz TODAY to demand that demolition be halted immediately, while the community finds alternatives to tearing down this historic landmark in the heart of NE Portland's King neighborhood. Commissioner Fritz is in charge of the Bureau of Development Services, which issues permits for demolitions.
Call: (503) 823-3008
Say: I call on Commissioner Fritz to immediately halt the demolition of St. Paul's Church at 801 NE Failing St. The developer must work with the community to find alternatives to the destruction of this historic landmark.
