All of Division Clinton’s businesses are invited to Re-Envision Division, Thursday March 6, from 3 – 4:30 pm at Clinton Street Theatre. Seanette Corkill will show you creative ways to make your store windows the kind that bring people in, Michelle Reeves will explain how to position your store to compete, and Tyler Bump will talk about how to use data analysis and market research to revitalize our district. The speakers will be followed by discussion and hosted socializing between 4:30 – 6 pm.

If you’ve paid your DCBA dues, the event is free, otherwise the fee is $10. Space in the theatre is limited. To make your reservation, see www.divisionclinton.com by March 4. Bring your questions and help DCBA create amazing change. It is already revising its website and working on a district business map.

In or Out Tax Service reminds you that the first 14 days of April are frantic; plan to get your taxes done in March. Call for an appointment and remember that DCBA businesses get a 10% discount.

Now you have your insurance, if you’ve been assigned to a clinic other than where you’ve been going, you can ask to be changed. It’s called continuity of care. Call the Cover Oregon number in Salem (800.699.9075) to request a change. A warning: you can be on hold for up to an hour.

Discussion about Bike routes in the 20s continue, but it still looks like parking on 26th between Division and Clinton will remain.

Portland Eye Care opened at 4133 SE Division.  You can schedule appointments online at www.eyepdx.com. Bollywood is open as is American Local, both at 30th and Division.

Tri-Met is beginning the bus service planning process for Division, Powell, and Milwaukie light rail and wants input from local businesses and residents. If you’re interested, check out the Tri-Met website, www.trimet.org, and attend meetings.

The majority of street work is done and work is focused on bioswales, which probably won’t be planted until the weather improves.  Paving is still scheduled for summer. Contact Joseph Annett at joseph.annett@portlandoregon.gov or 503.823.2934.

Traffic continues to be impacted by private construction.
