What a bunch of toxic cynicism. Give it a chance. Development barely started 5 years ago and it's already paying back all the bonds through increased tax revenue at a higher rate than anticipated. Some people have nothing better to do than complain.
Some sidewalks and streets aren't finished because they're going to be built by developers. I doubt "affordable" housing projects are going to generate enough revenue to pay for those street improvements. I'm sure someone would be complaining if the affordable housing went in first and there wasn't ANY sidewalks... Hell, my neighborhood still doesn't have sidewalks and some of the homes have been there 100 years! Maybe NE Portland is a failure too?
I'm not dating Sam nor ever did.. why should I feel betrayed? He's my representative, not my lover. Get back to work Sam!
