OregonTina - which New Seasons are you speaking of? The one on Interstate and Portland BLVD? I would point out that the building that was on that corner was just a warehouse where armored cars were stored overnight. It wasn't residential prior to New Seasons building there. That is the only New Seasons in North, so I'm confused about your statement.
It is just to bad that they decided to showcase a microbrewery that A) sucks and B) is owned by an east coast conglomerate.
The last time you had a street team, we were picking tape off the concrete much to the chagrin of Rose Festival parade goers.
Aren't food carts creating jobs? Let's think about it. 260 carts open day in and day out withing downtown and the close in east side. 3-4 people per cart - hmmm 1000 jobs? What about the tertiary companies that support the growing food carts - cart builders and suppliers. Aren't those jobs? I understand these aren't high paying manufacturing or logging jobs of yore and that maybe decisions throughout the years have brought us high unemployment, but why dog on something that is actually working and creating tax revenue? Many people waited for "the system" to figure things out and create jobs for them. When that failed, they created their own jobs in the food cart industry. Is that wrong Mr Bragdon? Full disclosure, I advocate for the carts.
That was an awesome night!
Sarah, great reporting. Thank you! Please follow up on the "confiscated" video from the person who was shooting from their private property with their personal device. That just sounds wrong.
