Crown Motel Sign Needs New Home
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Crown Motel Sign, Atomic Age Alliance Portland, Interstate Avenue, Oregon
Contributed By: Alyssa Starelli

Website: http://aaapdx.org

The Atomic Age Alliance - Portland's immediate goal is to rally interested businesses, groups, and community members to help save, relocate and restore the Crown Motel sign somewhere along "motel row." AAA-PDX is collaborating with staff from the city's planning and development agencies to identify a site that meets necessary criteria. The group is asking property owners along N. Interstate Avenue from N. Overlook to N. Russet to consider whether their properties might serve as a new home for the restored (and possibly re-purposed) sign. “Potential locations might be a commercial site, an unimproved lot or a parking area,” says Alyssa Starelli, AAA-PDX vice-president. “Our hope is to find a site prior to March 15th, when REACH will be demolishing the motel for a new low-income housing project. If a site cannot be located, the sign may be lost.”

Sign dimensions are available at: Crown Motel Sign Dimensions (http://aaapdx.org/atomic/wp-content/uploads/2008/01/crown-motel-sign-dimensions.pdf)

Anyone with prospective sites is asked to submit them by email. Contact the same address with questions or to learn more about restoration fundraising and sponsorship opportunities.
