First, the changes to our bus stops and schedules have been postponed until hoped for federal funding is available. In the meantime, a number of bioswales on the north side of Division between 38th and the river are failing and need to be rebuilt.

As you cannot help but notice, this year’s construction has begun. As for the condition of the roadways, not a word.

Business changes are brighter. While we will miss Hedge House, the tiny building at 34th will now house Little Beast Brewing, an acclaimed Oregon Brewery. They plan to redo the interior of the house and open in April.

Portland Impact has left Richmond Place Apartments, the building at 41st and Division. The building’s street level tenants are the Mt. Hood Hearing Center, Edward Jones, Marino Adriatic, and Portland Eye Care. The new property managers are Home Forward, formerly the Housing Authority of Portland (HAP). They are rehabilitating the two floors of apartments for Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare as Permanent Supporting Housing.

In January, Piccolina on Clinton renamed itself Pinwheels Resale – same address, same owner. In December, PDX Sliders opened at 3111 SE Division, the former home of Black Dog Lounge and before that, the Sunshine Tavern.
