Stop Demolishing Portland seeks to preserve our city’s affordable, historic and vintage housing stock by sharing information about endangered Portland homes; taking actions to preserve specific houses by conversing with developers, petitioning, and demonstrating against this wave of destruction. SDP aims to change Portland city policies that endanger homes, promote endless gentrification & price longtime residents out of Portland. Goals that could include creating a mandatory demolition delay period, a demolition moratorium, strengthening the nearly non-existent city policies to designate protected houses, reviewing city zoning that encourages higher density construction in our vintage low and medium density neighborhoods, promoting subsidized and/or public housing, repealing the state’s ban on inclusionary zoning, preserving our established neighborhood tree canopies, among many others.

Watching the United Workmen Temple come down is a classic example of that day you dread and yet you know it's coming. Despite growing up in the Portland area I really didn't know downtown that well until the past 20 months or so where I took the time to get to know it better. On one of these days I turned a corner and saw this place for the first time and it's appearance, almost intimidating in nature, threw me for a loop more than any other building that I discovered for the first time in downtown. Needless to say, once I saw it I went mad with photographs. These are all from either late Spring or early Summer 2016. Just a little memorial piece as this beautiful, irreplaceable gem falls victim to the greed of those who either don't understand or who just don't care about Portland's history and rapidly vanishing architectural beauty. ...

This beautiful 80+year old cedar tree has provided me with shade, privacy and serenity for over 2 years. It is also home to many living friends, including a raccoon who sleeps up there every night. The owners of the property and the city are chopping it down starting Sept 11. I am heart broken. There is also nothing I can do (I've tried speaking with the owners). So, next time you bike by SE 45th and Salmon give the tree a wave and send good thoughts its way since it will only be around for a few more weeks. 😩😭❤️🌲 ...

On a happy note. Remember the ""Witch's House" on NW Irving? Doesn't hold the mystery it once did, but so sweet they saved it. We're losing too much of our architectural history, too fast. ...
