Historic Chinatown/Japantown Threatened (Architectural Heritage Center)

The Bosco-Milligan Foundation/Architectural Heritage Center has filed an appeal of Portland's Central City 2035 Plan with the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals in an effort to protect the city's  New Chinatown/Japantown historic district and to protest the lack of public participation in recent city council actions. 

On June 6, 2018 the Portland City Council passed a last minute amendment to rezone almost half of the New Chinatown/Japantown historic district, whose buildings stand at 2-3 stories, and raise height limits in the district to 200 feet. This is well above the height of any of the historic or more recent buildings in the area. The June 6 amendment disregarded many years of work by the city staff, the public, and the Planning and Sustainability Commission to establish sound height limits in the historic district at 125 feet (about 12 stories).

The Architectural Heritage Center is joined in the appeal with co-petitioners Restore Oregon, the Portland Chinatown Museum (part of the Portland Chinatown History Foundation, and the Oregon Nikkei Endowment.
