Our street is full of potholes.  You can report them by email at pdxroads@portlandoregon.gov or by using the PDX Reporter App. You can also call PBOT’s 24-hour maintenance line at 503-823-1700.

While there is speculation about the future of healthcare, the current system will remain as is until congress and the president agree and the bill becomes law.  Even then, it will take a while to put in place.  Nothing at the Richmond Clinic or the walk-in clinic will change in the foreseeable future.

DC Vegetarian will soon replace Mi Mero Mole at 5026 SE Division.  With one new apartment building across the street and a couple more under construction, they should have lots of customers.  A couple of blocks further north, Bleeding Hearts Kettleball Club opened at 2043 SE 50th, the corner of Lincoln and 50th.

The red brick building at 2800 SE Division, formerly the Shanghai Company, is still for lease.  For Paws pet supply store moved three blocks up Division, from 3029 to 3340.  Their new sign is up.  Virtuous Pie, pizza and ice cream, is still hiring as of May 16th.  They will open at 1126 SE Division, Suite 200, facing 11th Avenue and next to The Baker’s Mark.  Simply Vintage is around the corner at 1100 SE Division suite 102.  Simply vintage offers curated clothing from the 40s, 50s and 60s.  Serenity Shop, 3212 SE Division moved to 6063 NE Glisan.

An update on more night lighting in the business district.  Some of the streetlight poles belong to PGE and some to the City of Portland.  No additional lighting can be requested until the owner of the pole is identified.  That requires research into the most efficient places to add sidewalk light, the owner of the pole, and installation and maintenance costs.

The Richmond/South Tabor Sewer repair Project starts this July and continues for a year.  There will be work on Chavez between Powell and Brooklyn and on Division between 58th and 60th.  For more information about repairs in the neighborhood, go to https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/68185.
